Why should I buy a tenor ukulele?
The ukulele is one of the easier string instruments to play – and certainly one of the most fun. However, before you buy your uke, you may be slightly confused about the different types available.
Here's some further information to help you out...
What size ukulele should I buy?
Tenor ukuleles are the largest of the three common sizes of ukulele (soprano, concert, tenor). Tenor ukuleles are often the go-to for professional players and their larger size and inherent playability offer an excellent choice for players wanting to experiment with different playing styles. They perform particularly well in a ukulele duo or trio – occupying the lower frequencies wonderfully.
Their larger size means they deliver a deep, resonant and bass-y tone with excellent volume and can be tuned to high-G (the same as soprano and concert ukes) or low-G where the G string is tuned down one whole octave for a mellower tone.
