Considering a Ukulele?

This small, guitar-like instrument first appeared in the music community in Hawaii back in the 1800s. Over the years, the unique sounds of the ukulele have grown to be adored by music lovers everywhere. It’s also an easier instrument to learn than a traditional guitar, due to its small size and fewer strings. 

The size of your ukulele will determine its sound. Soprano, the small size, produces a higher pitch while baritone ukuleles are large in size and produce low, deep tones. Even the bigger ukuleles are easily portable, making this instrument a popular choice for many musicians!

Ukuleles are a great starting instrument for beginners because of its size, shape and affordability. The durable, nylon strings are both soft and easy on the fingers while the small body makes it easier and more comfortable to hold. Already play guitar? Ukulele chord shapes translate well to those who also play guitar. You can find the best ukulele for you with models starting under $50!
