Aaron Plunkett's Blue Bones have been cast from Aaron's custom collection of
personally hand-crafted authentic Irish Bones. Plunkett uses advanced casting
applications and hi-tech materials to re-create his best bone shapes for ease of playing, balance, sound reproduction and ergo-dynamics.
Each model produces a different pitch in tonal range:
Alpha/Slim--higher, Omega/Stout-- lower.

1.) Alpha/Slim: for regular and larger hands;
approx. size and weight, 1 1/4" x 1/8" x 7", 3.0 oz. pair.
2.) Omega/Stout: for smaller hands;
approx. size and weight, 1" x 1/4" x 6", 3.0 oz. pair.
Each pair (Slim and Stout models), are matched to be approximately identical in size, shape and weight. Blue Bones are cast in the likeness of natural bone, therefore, no two bones are exactly the same.
Blue Bones are made out of specially formulated urethane that is combined with stone, air and metal suspended inside of the bone. The combination of these materials, and the natural shape, provide effortless performance and superior command of the instrument. Aaron's Blue Bones deliver a unique 'crack' and different sound, slightly softer in volume than real bone. Each pair is personally crafted and fine tuned. Also, Blue Bones are vegan sensitive.
