The warm charm of the ukulele is a great addition to any unique musical arrangement. The ‘uke’ is a great starting point for musicians of any age to get a feel for musical theory. Professional musicians will enjoy finding a ukulele that will add some extra ear-catching tone to a performance or recording. The ukulele first appeared on the island of Hawaii in the 1800s and has been a big part of their musical culture ever since. It is synonymous with swaying palm trees and sandy beaches, so much so that many pop artists from John Lennon to Bob Marley to Bruno Mars have incorporated this breezy instrument into their arrangements. The distinct tone and plucky notes added texture and warmth that made songs like “Imagine”, “No Woman No Cry” and “Count on Me” stand out. There are few considerations when you’re choosing the perfect ukulele for you. Ukuleles come in four main sizes. Sopranos have the highest pitch and are also the smallest. These are the most commonly used ukuleles due to their lightweight and classic tone. The concert ukuleles are the next size up and have a rich mid-range tone with a little more natural volume, while the tenor uke has a deeper tone and longer fret board that makes them easier to play. The largest of the four is the baritone ukulele. This version produces a very low tone, sounds closest to a traditional classical guitar and it is also tuned differently than its ukulele counterparts. Each size gives you a different sound so it’s important to know what your musical goals are. The wooden construction of a ukulele is also something you’ll want to think about. Today, there are many options that range from exotic to more traditional. If you’re after a vintage ukulele tone, models like the Luna Guitars High Tide or the Lanikai NK-C feature a Hawaiian wood called ‘Koa’ that provides optimal resonance and warmth. Other models like the Oscar Schmidt OU2 or the Cordoba 15CM have mahogany bodies much like many acoustic guitars. Being that woods like mahogany, rosewood, maple and so on are often used to make guitars, you can be sure your ukulele will have a similarly rich tone. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, you can easily find a ukulele that will sound great no matter how you plan to play it. Once you decide on a tone and wood type there are options available for every budget. You’ll be the life of the party or show in no time.
