The 4 Classic Types

There are 4 Classic types of ukulele. They are Soprano, Concert, Tenor, Baritone. There are also different types beside the 4 classic types. I will explaine two different types but later.

The soprano also know as the standard ukulele. Soprano is the smallest out of the 4 classics. This ukulele is mostly found being carried around because of it's small size. The s
oprano is the ukulele for novice players who are intrestred in learning.

The concert ukulele also known as Alto is a little bigger then the soprano and instead of 13" scales like the soprano, the concert has 15" scales. This type was made for people with larger hands.


This is the type of ukulele that can be form with more than just 4 strings. It has a fuller tone then the soprano and concert type. Since the tenor type is bigger then the concert it also comes with lots of strings like 6, 8, 9, 12, and even 14.

This is the last and biggest ukulele and is known as a mini-guitar. It can also be tuned as a guitar. With its size comes the deepest tone and is the most exspensive model.
