Flight Diana TE Electro Acoustic Solid Cedar top and Walnut Tenor Ukulele w/Gigbag
The Flight Diana is one that really caught our attention from afar this past year... There is no shortage of solid top cedar and spruce top concert and tenor ukuleles at this price on the market but there is something just especially pleasing about the Flight tenor ukulele.
It looks the part and seemingly has all of your favourite features from the popular Snail and Kala models at this price but with it's own added twists. The cedar top and gloss finish give this ukulele a very confident and clean sound. The dark laminate walnut back and sides really play their part too making the ukulele look great alongside that subtle red padauk binding.
The slotted headstock and gold hardware are another worthwhile addition to the Diana TE giving the whole thing a slightly regal appearance which I suppose was the point. I may be wrong but being part of the Princess series and being names Diana you have to assume that Flight themselves thing this ukulele is fit for royalty?
The icing on the cake is that this tenor ukulele comes with a very good double active undersaddle transducer pickup with a soundhole mounted volume and tone. It's the perfect gigging instrument that offers many quality features whilst still remaining relatively affordable. Throw in Flight's padded gigbag and there is nothing not to love!

Note: The Flight Ukuleles are a fantastic choice at this particular price point because they often offer extra features and striking wood that defy the expectations of this price. However, they do suffer from cosmetic flaws and small finish defects like other Chinese made production instruments. This includes the hardware where the tuner buttons can sometimes feel a bit loose or slippery. We do our best to capture major issues but you may find some small imperfections on close inspection that cannot be avoided.
