The largest members of the ukulele family, baritones are usually tuned like the four top strings of a guitar, making them perfect for guitar players who wish to step into the ukulele world without having to relearn all the chords. Due to their size (74 cm), baris have a very warm, responsive sound similar to a classical guitar. In 2019 Flight has completely redesigned this model, changing the headstock and bridge shapes, as well as identifying choice woods to build it with. This has resulted in each uke owning its own attractive look with a sound you'll never grow bored of. Fitted with baritone strings and the conventional baritone DGBE tuning. Thanks to its warm sound, low maintenance, and flawless intonation, the DUB38 is a perfect instrument for a beginners and seasoned players alike.
Mahogany is a hardwood which has been used to make quality musical instruments for centuries. Its colour can vary a fair amount, from a pale pinkish brown to a darker reddish brown, and it tends to darken with age. Do not let the “sober” look of mahogany fool you, though – mahogany ukuleles, especially those fitted with an arched back, know how to growl!
The neck and fingerboard of the DUB38 are made from African okoume and techwood. Techwood is a composite wood used by many luthiers. Flight is a great believer in using the right material for the job and has no hesitation in using composites where it will bring the highest quality to the instrument as well as contribute to global sustainability.
The bridge has been completely redesigned to make it more attractive and stable.
Most of serious ukulele brands use passive piezo pickup, which is why Flight decided to shift from using EQ system to passive piezo. It makes the ukulele lighter and more balanced, eliminates the unwanted string rattle and provides as a strap button...What more can you ask for?
Headstock design is an integral part of Flight's identity. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune.
Light and stylish, yet offering excellent protection for your ukulele, Flight gigbags have already become legendary and with one hanging off your shoulder you will definitely make heads turn.
