Flight Aurora EQ-A Baritone Ukulele
You asked, and we listened! By popular demand, we proudly present the Aurora baritone ukulele, the first baritone in our Princess series, and it is definitely deserving of the title. This ukulele is majestic! It features a rosewood back and sides for a deep, rich, resonant tone with a solid spruce top that also provides clarity and projection, combined with a C1U Active pickup which makes it a great ukulele for amateur and professional performers alike. Remember that our baritone ukuleles are strung with DGBE tuning, which is the same as the bottom four strings of a guitar. Having said that, all your usual ukulele chord shapes will work, just for different names of notes and chords.
Let Your Music Take
A classic gets a makeover
Rosewood paired with solid spruce
We paired rosewood back and sides with a solid Spruce top for a sound that is both deep, warm and rich in the mid and lows as well as providing a clarity and projection in the high end. This is a very common combination of guitar tonewoods that works wonderfully for the baritone ukulele.
Rosewood fretboard and bridge
Bone compensated saddle and pin bridge
The Aurora features a real bone nut and a compensated saddle. Compensated saddles help to properly set the intonation of each string.
Depth and Clarity
D’Addario baritone strings as standard
Especially designed for the baritone with a combination of nickel wound D and G strings and fluorocarbon ‘Titaniums’ for the B and E strings, these strings deliver a contemporary sound and bright tone.
Abalone Rosette and unique position markers
The abalone rosette offers a classic touch and the unique maple fretboard markers make this baritone stand out from the pack. Side position markers also add to ease of reference.
We decided to use a scalloped cutaway for this model, as it has been a favorite feature of our Spirit, Mustang and Victoria model. This intelligent design allows for playing up the frets but without the compromise on volume and tone that many full cutaways inflict. It also showcases the absolute craftsmanship and mastery of our luthier.
Small yet mighty
Double C1U active pickup
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. The Double C1U is easy to use, and sounds great! Ukuleles with the new active pickups include an “A” (for “Active”) as a part of their model number.
Only the best gig bag
All of our Princess series ukuleles come with a luxury red gig bag with a purple infusion. Associated with royalty, this regal color adds a final touch of luxury to this instrument. The bag features 15mm padding which is thick and will ensure good protection for your uke.
Learn in style.
We have also designed a cute 8-page guide to help you on the road to future ukulele fame. It is packed with all the necessary information needed for a quick start including chord charts, strumming patterns and chord progressions for your first drills.
We also included a cool sticker pack from Flight.
