UKELELE / UKULELE Sizes Differences and Tips for Choosing

Ukulele soprano, concert, tenor, baritone?

What is that?

Hello, friends of the ukuleleria and other parts of the internet, I am Karen. how are they? If they entered this blog it is because they are interested in the ukulele or want to learn to play it.

One of the most common responses when someone wants to do or know one of these two is, "WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SIZES? HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT ONE ?!

Okay, do not worry! Here are some tips so that you know the difference and you can choose the one that best suits you

UKULELE SOPRANO

This ukulele is the most popular and perhaps the one with the most variety in designs and even prices! This ukulele stands out more for its sharpened sound, that is, being the smallest and having the smallest box therefore it has a sharper sound. This ukulele is highly recommended for beginners PEEEEEEEEROOOO, it also depends a lot on your complexion, there are people who are beginners and think about buying a peep soprano if your fingers are wide, you should opt for a concert size!

So you don't look like this and be a little uncomfortable ...

UKULELE CONCERT

The next size is gig, the gig ukulele is a little bit bigger than the soprano, being bigger and having a bigger resonance box its sound is a little bit more serious than the soprano. Do not worry about it because it is played the same, the chords are the same but for logic reasons the bigger the space where the sound bounces the more serious the sound that will come out!

It is recommended that you start with a concert, so you will not feel it so big or sooo small and in my personal opinion it is a standard size and is the best to start!

UKULELE TENOR

This is a ukulele that exists but not almost many people choose it, perhaps it is because it already looks a lot like a guitar due to its size in the box, obviously and with everything you have already read you already got an idea of ​​its sound, exactly, it's a bit more serious than the concert ... Every time someone says they don't want a tenor ukulele because it already looks a lot like a guitar I imagine the tenor as ...

UKULELE BARITONE

This one already looks more like a guitar and I'm not talking about its sound, but because the ukulele literally has the same tuning as a guitar but using the first 4 strings, that is, if you how do you make a ukulele chord of ( DO) in the baritone ukulele will not be a (DO) but a (SOL) chord, Then we can blog about it. Most people who choose this ukulele is because they already know how to play guitar and want something easier to carry, or those who play soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles want to make their way to the guitar!
