With so many different ukulele companies, sizes, shapes, colors, and sounds, it can be totally overwhelming trying to figure out which is best for you. Maybe you should just get all of the different ukuleles? It would be nice but the reality is that many of us are ready to get our first one and need help deciding where to go. Some of the different sizes you might see are the sopranino, soprano, super soprano, concert, pineapple, tenor, super tenor, baritone, and bass. That's a lot, so for today's video let's just focus on the 4 most popular ukuleles, the soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Also remember this as a general rule for instruments, smaller the size the higher the timbre. You'll notice how the tiny soprano ukulele sounds much higher than the bigger baritone ukulele. You may even say the soprano sounds louder than the baritone, but this is not necessarily true. Bigger instrument produce more sound than little ones are should be louder, but many of our ears perceive higher timbre instruments as being louder because they cut through so well. When I say higher pitch, I’m not referring to volume, although many of our ears perceive a higher pitch as sounding louder, but simply that a sound has more treble (higher pitch) or more bass (lower pitch). The order of the 4 ukuleles that we discuss in this video are (from smallest to biggest): soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. The best way to figure out which ukulele size is best for you is to go to a store and pick them all up and see what one fits best for your body. Even if you don't know how to play a single chord, you can just tell by holding, feeling, and even smelling the instrument which is best for you. Maybe not smelling but ukuleles do smell great, or is that just me? One tip, I would stay away from purchasing a baritone ukulele if it's your first instrument because it is tuned differently than the soprano, concert, and tenors. Plus a majority of the instructional videos and books on the market cater towards the soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles. Unless you know specifically that you want a baritone ukulele, I would stick with a soprano, concert or tenor. The biggest difference in the sound of the ukuleles is sound and size. Bigger ukuleles will have bigger bodies, longer necks, and sound deeper. If your a big person with big hands I would consider a tenor or a concert ukulele. Personally I think the tenor ukulele is the best there is. But if your smaller with smaller hands than a soprano or a concert will be just fine. The safest best is to get a concert ukulele. The are not too big or too small, there easy to hold and play, and they sound great. Remember that you get what you pay for. With so many ukulele companies making so many different types of ukuleles at all price points, it's easy to say look at this one on amazon for $85, it looks just like the one that is $850. Looks are deceiving. The 2 biggest reasons why some ukuleles cost so much more than others is the kind of wood that is used and if an instrument is handmade or not. An handmade Hawaiian ukulele made from koa wood is going to cost you much more than a laminate ukulele made in China. That is not to say that some $200 ukuleles don't feel and sound great, but personally I always go for the most expensive instrument that I can afford. This is another reason why it's great to go to a store and play the ukulele that you want because you might find that $200 ukulele that plays and sounds like a $2000 one. Now go buy a ukulele or go grab the one you have and play.
