Ukulele Buying Guide

There are plenty of reasons to pick up a new ukulele -- they're fun to play, easy to take on the road, and if you already play the guitar, you'll be able to master the basics of the ukulele in no time at all.

First developed over a hundred years ago in Hawaii, modern ukuleles come in four main sizes. From smallest to largest, they are: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone, with the smallest size producing the highest pitch. Typically, beginners opt for the comfort of a smaller size like a soprano or concert, while more experienced players often employ larger ukes to fill particular roles in their music.

Take a look at our ukulele guide below to find the one that's right for you, or Shop all Ukuleles »
Beginner Ukuleles: Concert and Soprano Sizes
First-time ukulelists often prefer concert and soprano-sized ukuleles because they have smaller bodies and easily playable necks. These budget-friendly ukuleles are a great choice for beginners.

Tenor Ukuleles
With a deeper voice and a larger body than you might expect from a ukulele, the tenor uke offers a full, rich sound. While concert-sized ukes typically have a 15" scale length, tenor ukes have a longer 17" scale. The longer necks come in handy for chording and are more familiar to uke players who are native to the guitar.

Acoustic-Electric Ukuleles
When it comes time to start gigging with your uke, you'll want something with electronics. Acoustic-electric ukuleles, also known as electro-acoustic, have onboard pickup systems and 1/4-inch outputs to connect to guitar amplifers, DI boxes, or PA systems. Plus, these ukes' built-in pickups make them useful for laying down tracks in the recording studio.
