Flight TUC-50 Salamander Concert Travel Ukulele. Walnut (with Gig Bag)

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.

The Flight TUC-50 uses laminate walnut for the sound board. Walnut is stiffer and denser than Mahogany, so its tone is brighter, as bright as Koa. The beautiful grain, paired with our hand-drawn Salamander design, is popular throughout the world.  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.  Want a ukulele that is tough, looks awesome, sounds great, plays well, and is ideal for players of any skill level?

Laminate Walnut

The TUC-50 uses laminate walnut for the sound board and matching headstock. Walnut is a fascinating heartwood, preferred by luthiers for both its malleability and beauty. Walnut is stiffer and denser than Mahogany, so its tone is brighter, as bright as Koa. However, open grains allow for a more present midrange that splits the difference between Rosewood and Mahogany. And on top of that – it looks simply great! The beautiful grain, paired with our hand-drawn Salamander design is already winning many admirers the world over!

ABS Neck & Fingerboard

The neck and fingerboard of this ukulele are made from ABS plastic.   The TUC is resistant to changes in climate conditions and is easy to clean and maintain.  You will never experience  a sharp fret or bent neck with any of our Travel ukuleles.   The surface of the ABS neck has a wood pattern, which offers a better tactile experience than smooth plastic.

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.

Black strap button

The rounded back of the Flight Concert Travel Ukulele could slide as you play the ukulele.  To address this issue, a strap button was added to the ukulele so that you can add a strap.  Flight offers a variety of excellent straps at a great price.

Good-looking and easy to tune.

All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that make it easy to keep your ukulele in tune.  The headstock veneer is made of linden and matches the soundboard.

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.
