Flight Soundwave Pickup System Add it to any ukulele for increased Acoustic Volume + Three onbaord effects, Reverb, Delay and Chorus.

Discover the hidden superpower in your existing ukulele by adding a new Ukulele Pickup system that produces more acoustic volume and effects that will astound you and your audience.

The Soundwave transducer technology vibrates your ukulele from the transducer mounted to the inside back of your ukulele. 

It vibrates the wood of your ukulele, turning your uke into what is effectively a speaker. 

Amazingly, it increases your volume without needing to plug into an amplifier.

Your ukulele sounds exactly like your ukulele, only much louder!

It also has an output jack to plug it into an amplifier or PA system.  It sounds very good through an amplifier for even more volume or plugged into a PA

Add in three onboard effects;  Delay, Reverb and Chorus, and you have one versatile sound blaster, all from your existing ukulele.


 

When a ukulele equipped with a soundwave system is played acoustically, it truly astounds both players and listeners.

Where is the amplifier hiding? People will ask, and they won't believe that all the volume and effects are coming from the acoustic ukulele itself.


The tonal sorcery that this Soundwave Pickup/Ukulele is capable of is described as "augmented acoustically."

The Double O Systems Pickups technology in the Flight Soundwave version has electronics that allow you to mix in onboard digital effects such as reverb, chorus, and delay not just to your plugged-in sound but also to your acoustic sound.

What makes this possible?
The undersaddle pickup and onboard preamp of the Soundwave transfer an electric current to a transducer device attached to the inside of the ukulele's back. This little actuator physically drives the ukulele body, causing it to behave like a large speaker cone.

Or, to put it another way, you can amplify your ukulele without needing an amplifier and add reverb, chorus, or delay to the acoustic sound.

Flight is a Slovenian firm specialising in ukuleles and, most recently, pickups. When you press the Trans button on the preamp, the Soundwave system is activated, and the real fun begins. The Soundwave pickup produces a great, clear sound with no effect.

The signal is routed to the amp if you're connected to an amplification system, but if you're not, the onboard actuator enables you to add some amplification, which you can modify using the volume control.

The effect becomes noticeable when the volume control is set to about a quarter, and it's helpful up to about 7 or 8 until the system begins to drive the body so hard that the body begins to feed back!!!

So if it is madness you want, then dial up the output volume control for some hard rock to grunge-approved grungy feedback. Imagine if Jimi Hendrix or Smashing Pumpkins belted out solos on ukulele. Feedback, fun, and singing sustain anyone.

Back to reality, like with other effects, a little goes a long way. The Soundwave was most effective just below the feedback threshold when you blended in some reverb to add a little spaciousness to strums and fingerpicked parts or a touch of delay for a mild echo effect.

The Flight Soundwave Pickup System uses phenomenal new technology to place control of the preamp and various effects at the fingertips of the player, whether the ukulele is plugged into an amplifier or not.

Performers are often at the mercy of a sound engineer when gigging. The Flight Soundwave Pickup System not only adds a new dimension to acoustic playing but also gives the gigging musician complete control without the need for additional equipment other than a lead cable and the ukulele in their hand.

The Soundwave Pickup System has been such a smash hit that Flight has made the complete system available as an item in our catalog.

You can now purchase the system by itself and install it in any ukulele of your choice!
