Larger in scale length and body, the tenor ukulele possesses a real versatility when played. Sporting up to 19 frets, a tenor can employ an increased range of play that some players would otherwise miss when migrating to the Ukulele. The tenor fretboard is a real playground for chord inversions and other tricks. Indeed, tenors with their increased volume and sustain are often the choice of Hawaiian soloists and other notable players.
Flight DUT34 features Laminated mahogany. For decades, mahogany has been used to create high-quality musical instruments. Its colour ranges from a light pinkish brown to a darker reddish-brown, and it tends to darken with age. The neck and fingerboard of the Flight DUT34 Tenor are made from African okoume and techwood. Techwood is the wood that many luthiers use as a composite. We at Flight believe in choosing the best material for the work, and we have no doubts about using composites where we believe it will boost the instrument’s efficiency while also contributing to global sustainability. The DUT34’s nut and saddle are made of high-quality acrylic.
Most serious ukulele brands use a passive piezo pickup. So, Flight decided to shift from using the EQ system to passive piezo. It makes the ukulele lighter and more balanced, eliminates the unwanted string rattle and provides a strap button. Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune. Light and stylish Flight gig bags offer protection and have become legendary.
