The flight Sophia soundwave tenor ukulele is a unique and beautiful instrument. It features a solid spruce top coupled with laminated walnut back and sides in a high gloss finish. This combination of woods is not common in ukulele ranges but it has a classic understated look with a powerful and rounded tone that is really complimented by the additional brightness from the spruce top. Every part of the uke is finished to perfection, whether it's the rosewood rosette, purplewood bridge and fingerboard or the slotted headstock finished in walnut. Add into the mix Worth strings and you start to see how much effort and attention has gone into the manufacturing process.
To make the uke even more special, flight have kitted it out with their Soundwave Technology. In it's simplest form, the uke is an electro model but it does so much more besides. Built into the onboard electronics are chorus, reverb and delay which can be utilised without ever plugging the instrument in. The body of the uke is used as a speaker with a small transducer fitted onto the inside of the back plate. This amplifies the signal and allow the effects to be used without plugging in. The sound is stunning and works beautifully well when playing fingerstyle or picked melodies. It's a feature that really has to be experienced to fully appreciated and we highly recommend this uke to all players out there.

Tone Wood Projection at its best.
Spruce and Walnut
Spruce is a wood adored by ukulele players for its open projection and volume. This all-solid spruce top is paired with a lovely laminate walnut back and sides to add a warmer look and a sound similar to rosewood. The pairing of the two woods provides a deep tone and an impressive resonance. Just when you thought it couldn’t get more heavenly with the gorgeous contrast of the two woods, the gloss finish makes this ukulele a real head-tuner.

Phenomenal New Technology
Catch Your Sound Wave.
The Flight Soundwave Pickup System represents a breakthrough in acoustic engineering and sound design, allowing you to get stunning acoustic sound and effects on your ukulele with or without being plugged into an amplifier or sound system.
It all starts with the head.
The Evolution of Modern Headstocks.
At Flight we do not rest on our laurels. One aspect of this is demonstrated in the evolution of our headstocks. Slotted headstocks make for easy strings changes, while ensuring sound precision. The steeper break angle makes for a more stable sound with the overall design adding more structural stability and better vibration of strings over the bone nut. We have installed beautiful gold colour open-geared tuners which gives a true regal feel to this ukulele.
Light and Stylish Gig Bag
Excellent Protection for Your Uke
Don’t get us wrong. We love the beige case we use with our ukuleles but Royalty always travels in style. The Princess series needed a little pampering. Our royal purple infused burgundy case is lined with a plush 15mm thick padding that will keep your ukulele comfortably protected. When people see your case they’ll be lining up to see the Royalty inside.
