Folk & Wind Ukuleles Information


The ukulele is a member of the guitar family of instruments. Generally, the ukulele has four nylon or gut strings. The tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Ukuleles are commonly made of wood, although variations have been composed partly or entirely of plastic. Less expensive ukuleles are largely made from ply or laminate woods, in some cases with a sound board of an acoustically better wood such as spruce. More expensive ukuleles are made of solid hardwoods such as mahogany.

Four sizes of ukuleles are common: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. The soprano, often called standard in Hawaii, is the smallest and was the original size. The concert size was developed later as an enhanced soprano, slightly larger and louder with a deeper tone. Shortly thereafter, the tenor and baritone were created, having more volume and deeper bass tone.
