Flight A10 MM All Solid Mango Dragon Anniversary Tenor Ukulele #1
The video below shows a comparison between the Flight Fireball and the A10MM.
The final frontier for SUS and the much loved Flight anniversary ukuleles is the mango dragon! We have resisted the urge to stock the A10 MM until now because the Flight Fireball is such a seminal ukulele in our catalogue... Could a deluxe version of that Ukulele really live up to the fireball and offer enough different? We were a bit cynical too but thankfully, this ukulele is the perfect step up from a Flight Fireball and offers players an alternative high end ukulele to a KoAloha standard, a Big Island, Rebel or Romero Creations.
The A10MM tenor ukulele is made of all solid figured mango and is a slightly enlarged body shape to standard Flight models. It's not quite a jumbo/super tenor but the slightly elongated lower bout body shape mirrors the warm and well rounded, smooth sound that it produces.
The cosmetic details and upgrades on this model are undoubtedly a contributing factor to this instruments higher price tag but the more bespoke and luthier built element of the A10 series also comes into play. This doesn't feel like a fireball in the hands despite having Flights signature wider nut width and neck shape.
