The Flight TUC55 Concert ukulele has the makings of a prefect first uke. The ABS back, wooden top combo produces a strong, musical tone and the ABS fingerboard ensures consistency in each one's playability. Complete with a carry case, strap button and even a leaflet containing a chord chart to get you going.
Flight Travel Ukuleles have been acclaimed for their great sound, playability, durability, and value. Flight Concert Travel Ukuleles (TUC) have a slightly larger body and a slightly longer fretboard than the Soprano Travel Ukulele, resulting in a larger sound–all the great qualities of the TUS, but bigger. Players with larger hands will enjoy the extra room on the fretboard. these ukes also hold their own as a fun but high functioning uke for a more established player. The ABS features mean that it is extremely damage resistant and an ideal uke to take out and about.
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 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.
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
Linden is a wood characterised by a bright sound and sleek texture. It also absorbs water colours 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, we are using a special wiping colour technique to create even more patterns.
The Flight TUC-55 Mango Concert Ukulele features a laminate mango top. Mango is a popular wood as much for how great it looks as well as how incredible it sounds. The ukulele also incorporates an ABS body, neck, fretboard and bridge. The result is a ukulele with low action that is easy to clean and maintain.
ABS Neck & Fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard of the TUC55 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.
In 2019 we changed the bridge for a sturdier version with non-compensated saddle.
It all starts with the head.
Good-looking and easy to tune
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer of TUC55 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.
Always ready to go
The final touch that the Travel Ukulele needed was a cool gig bag to accompany it on your travels. We chose the blue denim colour to compliment your style and also to make the bag stand out from the standard black that everyone else seems to favour.
Learn in style
The ukulele comes with Flight start-up booklet to help you on the road to future ukulele fame. It is packed with all the necessary information needed for a quick start including chord charts, strumming patterns and tabs for an original song by Elise Ecklund!
