Plastic Fantastic! Conventional wisdom will say that plastic ukuleles are cheap, low-quality substitutes for “the real thing.” Well, it's time to kick conventional wisdom out the door! Built unapologetically from plastic, the sound quality of these ukuleles will blow you away, and their durability will make them Keith Richards' instrument of choice after Armageddon hits. These ukes are perfect for rainy festivals, cramped overhead lockers, moody teenagers, and ukulele teachers working with young children.
Thanks to a wider arched ABS back, this baby has more volume in middle range than your average soprano, while also resonating better and sounding brighter. It is needless to mention the durability and resistance to humidity changes, the main enemies of the wooden ukuleles.
Linden is a wood characterised by a bright sound and sleek texture. It also absorbs water colors in a very interesting way creating very cool patterns, which means that no uke is the same and your uke will be the one and only. On top of that, Flight is using a special wiping color technique to create even more patterns.
The neck and fingerboard of the TUS-35 are made from ABS plastic. It is a perfect solution for entry class ukuleles, since it is not prone to any weather changes. You will never get a sharp fret or bent neck in any of Flight's Travel ukuleles. The neck surface imitates the wood pattern, to avoid a feeling of cheap plastic.
Zero fret paired with unique bridge construction keeps the string action low and intonation on point. Since the plastic is never going to move, you will never have to deal with any additional work on the saddle.
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer of TUS-35 is made of linden and matches the color of the top. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune.
The final touch that the Travel Ukulele needed was a cool gig bag to accompany it on your travels. The blue denim color will compliment your style and also make the bag stand out from the standard black.
