A soprano ukulele has the scale length of 33 centimeters and a total length of 53 centimeters. This ukulele is also called the standard ukulele. It is known as the smallest of the four kinds and is also known to produce the most common sound that people would usually hear from this instrument. The problem with the soprano ukulele is that its frets are too close together which makes it hard for people with big fingers to play it. Despite the lack of size and fret space, it is still the most popular of the four because of its affordability.

A concert ukulele is described as mid-sized version of the standard ukulele and is known to produce a much deeper sound. This is also the ukulele commonly used in concerts because it is lightweight and at the same time, still able to produce the same sound that people require from a regular ukulele which is loud enough to be used on stage.

A ukulele is a small four stringed guitar that is popularly associated with Hawaiian culture. It was made as an imitation of small guitar like instruments that were brought to them by Portuguese immigrants in the early 19th century. Ukuleles come in four different sizes, all designed to produce a unique sound. These four are soprano, concert, tenor and baritone.

The tenor is one of the most popular of the four kinds of ukulele. It has been able to gain people’s attention because of its design and less traditional sound. Another unique feature of the tenor ukulele is the spacing of the different strings that are attached to it. The spacing allows for musicians to be able to play hold more difficult chords that they may not have been able to do with a regular ukulele.

The baritone is the biggest of the four and may take some time for the person using it to figure out how to tune it properly. This type of ukulele is designed to look like a guitar, but minus a couple of strings. This type of ukulele is commonly used by jazz and blues players.
