Ukulele Sizes

The Soprano is the smallest size ukulele followed by the Concert, Tenor and Baritone being the largest. The soprano, Concert and Tenor ukuleles have the same tuning which is called "C" tuning which is tuned GCEA from the 4th string down to the 1st string.  The Baritone tuning is DGBE (the same as top four strings on a guitar).

SOPRANO UKULELE - The Soprano (often called "standard" in Hawaii) is the smallest, and the original size 'ukulele. Most beginners start with soprano ukuleles. The soprano ukulele is a good musical instrument, easy to learn, easy to play, and FUN!

CONCERT UKULELE - In the 1920's the Concert size was developed, and designed to be an enhanced Soprano, being slightly larger and thus slightly louder and deeper sounding tone even when tuned to the same note. Many people with larger hands prefer the concert ukulele.

TENOR UKULELE - And a few years later the Tenor was created, being much larger than both the Soprano and Concert, and thus more volume and deeper bass tone. Many professional musicians play tenor ukuleles as these instrument's sound is louder and bolder.

BARITONE UKULELE - The largest size 'ukulele is the Baritone. With a 10" body width, and tuned DGBE (the same as a guitar), it is considered a miniature 4-string guitar.
