Which Size?

Aloha! So you’re looking to buy your first uke? Not sure which size is the best?

We’ll make it easy for you.

Soprano is the tiny one.
Concert is a little bigger.
Tenor even bigger.
And baritone is the big brother.

So, this is what we think:

Buy the soprano (oh hey, guess who sells ONLY sopranos?)

Yes, we’re biased, but only because we think sopranos are AWESOME.

Sopranos are GREAT for strumming - they just feel oh-so-right!

Sopranos are EASY to learn - they're tiny, so it's so much easier to stretch for notes and chords.

Best of all, sopranos produce sound that is often described as light, sweet and bouncy. Yes...bouncy!

On the other hand, concerts and tenors have a fuller, broader, deeper tone, and often more volume.  In other words, the soprano produces a FUN sound, while the concert and tenor are more "serious". The baritone... well they just sound like the guitar (no disrespect to all the baritone lovers out there, but it’s true!)

There is a downside. If you have very-fat fingers, then you might struggle to get used to the soprano because of its petite size and short fretboard. Professionals and advanced players tend to prefer either the concert or tenor precisely because of their longer fretboard, which is good for fingerstyle solos and instrumentals.

But if you're just starting out on this epic ukulele journey, SOPRANO is the way to go!
