Let Your Music Take Flight
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.
Bright and Funky
The TUS-EE uses laminate linden wood for the sound board. Linden is characterized by a bright sound and sleek texture It also allows us to print this colorful mountain sunset design on the sound board without compromising the sound quality of the instrument.
ABS Neck & Fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard 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 our Travel ukuleles. The neck surface imitates the wood pattern, to avoid a feeling of cheap plastic.
Pitch perfect quality.
Zero fret & ABS Saddle
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.
Fasten your seat belts.
Black strap button & Aquila Sugar Strings
Rounded back construction of this uke made adding a strap button a real necessity, so that it would not slide against your chest.
This uke is strung with Aquila Sugar strings. Aquila Sugar strings are a recent invention from a material that derives from sugar. They present the best of both worlds between the sweetness and tone of nylon strings and the brightness and power of fluorocarbon. When we first played these strings, the sustain from them left us speachless and so it would have been criminal of us not to spoil you and use these for this special release.
It all starts with the head.
Good-looking and easy to tune.
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer is made of linden to match the top and features Elise Ecklund’s signature along with the colorful gradient of the sunset to tie the design together.
