Flight Fireball EQ-A Baritone Ukulele
What is better than a Flight Fireball Tenor Ukulele? How about a Flight Fireball Baritone Ukulele? We listen to our customers, who asked for a baritone scale Fireball, and now you can get the popular Flight Fireball in the baritone scale!
Baritone ukuleles generally use the tuning from the top four strings of a guitar (DGBE), and offer a tone that is lower, warmer, and more rounded than smaller scale ukuleles. Like all of the instruments in the Royal Series, the Flight Fireball is named after a well-known jet airplane. The Flight Fireball EQ-A Baritone features a solid mango body with dyed maple appointments, including a rosette, comfort edge, and scalloped cutaway. The mango tree, most popular for its tasty fruit, also serves as a stunning tone wood, in both appearance and sound. Mango has a sweet sound (pun intended) that is often compared to koa and offers amazing grain patterns found on no other tone wood. The combination of the larger body with the tonal quality of mango results in a sound that is incredibly lush and warm. Check out the amazing Flight Fireball and see how sweet it is!

Let your music take
How sweet it is
The Flight Fireball Baritone Ukulele features a solid mango body. Mango has a distinctive grain and appearance, and is often compared to the tonal qualities of koa. Mango has a warm, resonant, rich sound with great sustain. You won’t believe how “sweet” this sounds!
African mahogany neck & rosewood fingerboard
The African mahogany neck of the Flight Fireball Baritone is strong and smooth, adding to the warm tone of the Flight Fireball. The fretboard is made of rosewood, a beautiful, strong, and hard wood that also adds warmth to the sound while lessening harsh higher frequencies on the instrument.
Bone compensated saddle and pin bridge
The Fireball features a rosewood bridge, as well as a real bone nut and a compensated saddle. Compensated saddles help to properly set the intonation of each string. The Fireball includes a pin bridge system, which helps keep the strings properly aligned on the ukulele, as well as to create a break angle over the saddle that transfers vibrations efficiently to the mango soundboard of the ukulele.
All dressed up
Stylish dyed maple rosette, binding, comfort edge, and scalloped cutaway
The Flight Fireball features a dyed maple rosette, binding, comfort edge, and scalloped cutaway. The comfort edge makes the ukulele incredibly comfortable to play, and the scalloped cutaway offers access to the highest frets without compromising the volume and tone of the ukulele.
Unique Side Soundhole Design
Why let everyone else hear how wonderful your ukulele sounds and not gain the benefit yourself? At Flight we realised that you can hear the full tone and volume of our ukes by introducing a sound hole at the top of the instrument. We also feel it contributes to the quality of the sound as a whole. Some people aren’t a fan of the appearance of a side sound hole which is why we have created an intricate design that gives you all the benefits of a normal sound hole whilst maintaining a solid appearance to the structure.
Invincible yet mighty
Double C1U active pickup
The Flight Fireball Baritone Ukulele includes a Double C1U active pickups. The controls for the 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!
Bold and striking headstock design
The Flight Fireball shares the unique “modified” slotted headstock as some of the other ukuleles in our Royal Series. The headstock looks amazing and will attract action on its own, while the design is strong and effective, making sure that the break angle at the nut results in the best possible tone of your ukulele.
Only the best gig bag
While our signature beige gig bag has become recognized in the ukulele world, we raised the bar with our Deluxe Gig Bag. The Deluxe Gig Bag has a royalty-inspired color (burgundy infused with purple) and incredible velvety interior. It isn’t often that the gig bag included with an instrument gets as much attention as the instrument itself–but that is what happened! We think it is the best gig bag that comes with any ukulele, period.
Every tiny detail matters.
