The Flight Iris tenor ukulele has been in the works for 12 months trying to offer a vintage colour take on affordable ukuleles. The three initial colours offered in the concert size were all reminiscent of vintage acoustic guitar colours from the 1960s and 1970s with an added chunky pickguard which is both aesthetically pleasing and practical as it will hopefully avoid you scratching your ukulele heavily. With the black/blue combination being the outright favourite; Flight have now issued the Iris in a tenor and baritone size!

The finish is satin and this uke has a solid spruce top with laminate mahogany back and sides. It projects wonderfully and looks reminiscent of aNueNue's popular colour series ukulele but with more restrained and introverted colour schemes in place.

This is to my knowledge the most affordable ukulele we have ever offered with the sought after 38mm nut width. The slightly wider spacing between strings is comfortable and this Flight ukulele benefits from the slotted headstock. This design gives it a nice balance between the headstock and the body and a bit more poise and punch to the sound.

Finally, these Flight Tenor ukuleles come with a really great padded bag which differs from the normal Flight bag and kind of has a gym bag look to it with a dark blue colour.

On the whole, we were excited for the Iris, particularly the black one which offers a more affordable alternative to the extremely popular Flight Nighthawk model - satin finish black with the electric blue pickguard!
