FLIGHT DU is a designer ukulele series, with each instrument featuring a unique design/decorative pattern.
DU series offer all four ukuleles sizes – that is, from small to large: soprano, concert, tenor and baritone.
The DU models are available in several variations, differing in size and wood type. The selection includes spruce, zebrawood, mahogany, african burl and mangowood top. You can also choose between laminated and solid-wood tops.
Solid-top ukulele is a more expensive instrument of higher quality; it requires careful maintenance, proper humidity and temperature. The laminated-top option is less demanding and more weather-resistant, making it the perfect choice if you are looking for an instrument for travelling. All our ukuleles come with high-quality gigbags of a soft sandy color, ensuring maximum protection for your uke.
From the model name it is very easy to work out its size and type of wood. DU is a name of the series, where D stands for Designer and U stands for Ukuleles.
The third letter means the size of the uke:
S - soprano
C - concert
T - tenor
B - baritone
Four sizes of the series will be spelled like this: DUS, DUC, DUT and DUB.
Number 3 after the letters means laminated top.
Number 4 means exotic wood.
Number 5 means top pade of solid wood.
Next two are the model numbers. The last letters in the name mean the type of wood of top, back and sides. After that it will be indicated whether the ukulele has a pickup or not – if it is equipped with a pickup it will have CEQ.
