Hand-Made with Sustainable Woods
J-uke™ travel ukuleles are hand-made from premium woods and solid top construction with arched backs. We use woods that are CITES compliant and sustainably cultivated including North American Sitka, real African Mahogany, Ovangkal, Makassar Ebony, and Meranti.
J-uke™ travel ukuleles are super ergonomic, with a wider fingerboard that’s perfect for quick arpeggios and chording all up the neck. Most models come with a scoop at the neck, which allows a full ukulele tone but makes access to upper frets much more comfortable.
Scale and Playability
J-uke™ travel ukuleles come in standard Concert and Tenor Scales, and our Super Soprano models feature thinline arched back construction with a Concert neck and scale. This gives our thinline soprano body a boost in volume, and makes it playable up past the 14th fret!
J-uke™ travel ukuleles come with premium tuners and strings, Aquilla® strings,as well as bone nuts and saddles. We use full wood binding and matching woods on our scoopaways, and all our ukes come with strap buttons.
We offer two main travel ukulele designs – the traditional dark mahogany solid top design with an arched back and traditional tortoise binding to bring you a warm and full ukulele tone. These are available in both concert and tenor body shapes. Our More modern alternative is available in concert, tenor and super soprano. This model features a scoopaway with a solid sitka spruce top for a snappy clear high-end and an arched back in meranti or striped ebony for a fuller low-end tone as well. Our modern style also features the super soprano ukulele model that’s perfect for travel. This thinline soprano with a concert neck fits perfectly in a matched travel ukulele gig bag for a total length of under 22 inches – which means you’ll never have a forced check in for your instrument when flying!
The solid top matched with an arched back gives our travel ukuleles a full and clear tone that’s stable in most every environment. This is ideal for a big-sounding travel ukulele that’s fit to play anywhere, with anyone and on any stage. When amplified with our passive piezo pickup system, J-uke™ travel ukuleles have an unparalleled natural ukulele tone.
We install our exclusive JourneyTek™ proprietary passive piezo pickups in our Overhead™ collapsible travel guitars. Engineered to be maintenance-free with high-output German made piezo elements, these are balanced and battery-free, and create a transparent representation of these amazing sounding travel ukuleles.
