The Travel Series is a truly unique range of ukuleles. They are made almost entirely from ABS plastic, but with a wooden top. The TUS35 has a linden plywood top with wiped colour satin finish. The arched back, plastic body allows for great sound projection, but also fantastic durability. There is no binding between the body and neck, which is also plastic and so will not bend. This ukulele is perfect for beginners, for players that need a portable uke but also for players looking for something a bit different.
