The Flight Voyager boasts a solid spruce top and solid acacia back and sides. It has a comfort edge for comfortable playing on your right arm and a beautiful abalone rosette.
Spruce doesn’t have any of the wild and beautiful patterns of other exotic woods but it is an unassuming stalwart for some of the richest tones you can get on a solid wood instrument. Married with solid acacia for the back and sides, we have used a perfect combination of these woods that is favoured by some of the worlds best luthiers.
Rosewood fretboard and bridge
In 2020, previous CITIES restrictions on the use of exotic woods were modified to allow their use in music instruments, so all new Voyager models include a rosewood fretboard and bridge.
Before Mid-2020, Voyager ukuleles featured a tech ebony fretboard, and some dealers still have those models in stock.
The use of a string-through bridge is one of the latest ukulele trends. It makes the top resonate better, due to strings being attached directly through the top soundboard, and not to the bridge. Changing the strings might seem a bit confusing at first, but actually it is easier and we are going to upload a tutorial on our Youtube channel really soon. D’Addario strings have recently been rising in popularity and after lots of tests we decided to feature them on our Royal series.
An ebony armrest was designed to provide a smooth surface for your playing arm to rest on, making this ukulele as comfy as a Victorian couch, but looking as modern as a Flight ukulele should be.
Double C1U active pickup
Through mid-2020, Voyager 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 Voyager. 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.
