Journey Ukuleles

J-uke™ Travel Ukuleles

Our J-uke™ hand-made travel ukuleles come in some of the coolest ukulele packages around. Other ukulele manufacturers focus only on ukulele design, then use after-market pickups and basic ukulele gig bags. We took an alternative approach, instead building the ukulele, case, and pickup as an integrated travel ukulele experience. This makes for great-sounding ukuleles matched perfectly with maintenance free ukulele pickups and robust ukulele travel bags. All our ukuleles feature solid top and arched back construction, and our full-featured ukulele travel bags offer premium protection and innovative functionality. Our passive pickups are maintenance-free and sound great through any amp. Read on below about what makes our J-uke™ hand-made travel ukuleles some of the coolest ukes around.

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.

Ergonomics

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!

Premium Appointments

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.

Ukulele Options

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!

Tone

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.

Electronics

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.

The Travel Ukulele Gig Bag

Our Patented J-uke™ travel ukulele bag takes your ukulele travel experience to a whole new level. The patented ukulele travel bag features full neck support and a retainer strap. It has hidden neck pockets, a large expandable body pocket and an expandable body net with clip-on straps. This means you can literally fit pedals, stands, and all your gear in your ukulele case with ease! We use all premium materials and YKK zippers, and we even add daisy chains to clip your ukulele on to any other bag you may be traveling with. The J-uke™ travel bag quickly integrates with other JourneyTek™ guitar travel bags for transport with your favorite guitar. Also, our travel ukulele bags have an optional reflective rain cover for ultimate protection from the elements when you’re on your musical journey.

Once you travel with a J-uke™ travel ukulele combo, you’ll never want another ukulele setup for your musical journey.
