Flight UTS-42 Kumiho Ultra Travel Ukulele
A kumiho is a nine-tailed fox from Korean legends and oral tales. Its storyline inspired our new ukulele, Flight Kumiho Ultra Travel!
The Flight Kumiho Ultra Travel Ukulele is a polycarbonate reinforced plastic soprano travel ukulele with a thin, resonant, and responsive lattice-braced soundboard and fluorocarbon strings, creating a bright and punchy sound. With a zero fret and precision engineering, the instrument features ideal action and excellent intonation for an enjoyable playing experience, and the slotted bridge makes string changes easy to accomplish.

Soprano Ultra Travel Ukulele
Let your music take
Space age materials and construction
Polycarbonate Reinforced Plastic
The Flight Ultra Soprano Ukulele is made of polycarbonate reinforced plastic, welded together with an ultrasonic process. The ukulele has an ultra-thin lattice-braced soundboard, creating one of the loudest plastic-based ukuleles on the market.
Molded neck and fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard of the Flight Ultra Soprano Travel Ukulele are made from the same polycarbonate reinforced plastic as the rest of the ukulele. The material is resistant to changes in temperature and humidity, and has excellent action. Say goodbye to sharp fret ends and warped necks!
Zero fret, integrated saddle, and fluorocarbon strings
The Flight Ultra Soprano Travel ukulele features a zero fret and integrated non-adjustable saddle, which keeps the string action low and intonation on point. To top it off, the ukulele comes with Flight fluorocarbon strings, which feel great, sound awesome, and intonate properly.
It all starts with the head
A familiar look and easy to tune
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. Flight is often recognized for our travel ukuleles, and the headstock of the Flight Ultra Soprano Travel Ukulele is meant to be reminiscent of the headstock design of the travel series. All Flight ukuleles are fitted with smooth operating, high quality geared tuners.

Strap button included
The Flight Ultra Soprano Travel Ukulele has a rounded back, which can make it more difficult to hold for some players. We added a single strap button to assist players that need a strap to more comfortably hold their ukulele. We offer a selection of affordable, quality Flight Ukulele Straps which would make a great accessory for your ukulele!

Awesome drawstring bag
Every Flight ukulele includes a gig bag. The Flight Ultra Soprano Travel Ukulele does not require a lot of protection, and as such, comes with a high quality drawstring bag that provides a way to transport the ukulele more comfortably and protect the strings from damage.
