The baritone is the largest standard size of the ukulele family. Baritones are usually tuned like the four top strings of a guitar, and many guitarists find it easier to transition to a baritone ukulele. Due to its size (74 cm), baritones have a very warm, responsive sound similar to a classical guitar. The DUB38 has an attractive look and a sound you’ll never grow tired of hearing. With its warm sound, low maintenance, and flawless intonation, the DUB38 is a perfect instrument for a beginners and seasoned players alike, and the pickup means that you are ready to perform on stage at a moment’s notice.
Wood with a story to tell
The Flight DUB38 is made from laminate mahogany. Mahogany is a hardwood which has been used to make quality musical instruments for centuries. Its colour can vary a fair amount, from a pale pinkish brown to a darker reddish brown, and it tends to darken with age. Do not let the “sober” look of mahogany fool you, though—mahogany ukuleles, especially those fitted with an arched back, know how to growl!
Okoume neck & techwood fingerboard
The neck of the DUB38 is made from okoume, and the fingerboard and bridge are made out of techwood. Techwood is environmentally friendly, attractive, strong, and durable.
Pitch perfect quality.
We have completely redesigned the bridge to make it more attractive and stable.
Invincible yet mighty
Double C1U active pickup
There are currently two different versions of electro-acoustic DUB38 baritone ukuleles on the market. Through mid-2020, DUB38 models featured a passive Artec pickup. Some vendors still have these models in stock.
In mid-2020 Flight moved to using Double C1U active pickups on the DUB38. The controls for the active pickup are mounted underneath the sound hole, meaning that a cavity does not have to be created on the side of the ukulele for the pickup. Most importantly, they sound great! Ukuleles with the new active pickups include an “A” (for “Active”) as a part of their model number.
