Flight TUSL-EE SUNSET Elise Ecklund Signature Concert Scale Soprano Travel Ukulele
“There’s something truly magical about a sunset. No matter where you are in the world, you can admire the beautiful colors streamed across the sky. The times I have watched a sunset over the mountains, I’ve felt adventurous, free, inspired, and a sense of peace. I wanted to capture this feeling on a ukulele. This soprano travel uke is for music lovers of every level, whether you are just starting out or have been playing for years. Pick it up and take it on every adventure with you.” (Elise Ecklund)
The Elise Ecklund Sunset ukulele is one of our best sellers and we are pleased to introduce as a concert scale long-neck soprano version! Flight TUSL models add a concert scale neck to the original soprano body of the TUS series, providing the comfort of a concert-sized fretboard combined with the punch and percussiveness of a soprano ukulele.

Elise Ecklund Signature Concert Scale Soprano Ukulele
Let your music take
Thanks to an arched ABS back, this ukulele has more volume in its middle range than your average soprano, while also resonating more freely and sounding brighter. Additionally, it is durable and resistance to changes in humidity–a primary concern with wooden ukuleles.
Bright and Funky
The TUSL-EE uses laminate linden wood for the sound board. Linden is characterized by a bright sound and sleek texture It also allows us to print this colorful mountain sunset design on the sound board without compromising the sound quality of the instrument.
ABS Neck & fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard are made from ABS plastic. It is a perfect solution for entry class ukuleles, since it is not prone to any weather changes. You will never get a sharp fret or bent neck in any of our Travel ukuleles. The neck surface imitates the wood pattern, to avoid a feeling of cheap plastic.
Pitch perfect quality
Zero fret & ABS saddle
Zero fret paired with unique bridge construction keeps the string action low and intonation on point. Since the plastic is never going to move, you will never have to deal with any additional work on the saddle.
Fasten your seat belts.
Black strap button & Aquila Sugar Strings
Rounded back construction of this uke made adding a strap button a real necessity, so that it would not slide against your chest.
This uke is strung with Aquila Sugar strings. Aquila Sugar strings are a recent invention from a material that derives from sugar. They present the best of both worlds between the sweetness and tone of nylon strings and the brightness and power of fluorocarbon. When we first played these strings, the sustain from them left us speachless and so it would have been criminal of us not to spoil you and use these for this special release.
It all starts with the head
Good-looking and easy to tune
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer is made of linden to match the top and features Elise Ecklund’s signature along with the colorful gradient of the sunset to tie the design together.
Always ready to go
The final touch that the Travel Ukulele needed was a cool gig bag to accompany it on your travels. We chose the blue denim colour to compliment your style and also to make the bag stand out from the standard black that everyone else seems to favour.
Learn in style
We have redesigned our start-up booklet 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 tabs for an original song by Elise Ecklund!
We also included a cool sticker pack from Flight.
