Who is this ukulele for?
Concert ukuleles are the second largest of the three common sizes of ukulele (soprano, concert, tenor). Their size offers a good compromise between smaller soprano and larger tenor ukuleles.
They feature a larger fret spacing and slightly wider neck than their soprano brethren – meaning they're easy to play as they there's more space on the fingerboard to master the chord shapes. The concert size is a great choice for players of any experience or skill level.
Their larger body means they naturally produce a full sound and warm tone with more mid-range emphasis than the soprano. They're therefore excellent accompaniment ukuleles that blend well alongside other instruments.
