What is the right size uke (ukulele) for me?
I am planning on buying a ukulele very soon, but I am unsure of which size to buy, as I have very large hands. I don’t know anyone who plays the ukulele nearby so I can’t test theirs and no shop nearby sells them. I was looking at a concert size, but after a closer look I’m not sure the frets would be large enough for me. Thanks in advance!
Also, this is the uke I’ve had my eye on for some time. I know it is quite expensive for a starter, but I have played electric and acoustic guitar for over 10 years, so it’s a willing expense. but some advice on whether this uke is worth the money would be brilliant. http://www.gak.co.uk/en/luna-tattoo-concert-ukulele-w-pre-amp/49408
There is no right and wrong, and many established players have ukes in all sizes (I certainly do). The sizes are more about the sound you want to achieve.
That said, for a beginner size certainly assists in learning. Many beginners, particularly if you have large hands, find the Soprano a little short on space, and for that money go for the most popular size, the Concert. Some can actually find Tenors a little big to hold, which only adds another thing to deal with.
I’d say go Concert – and the Luna ukes are great beginner models.
Good luck, and if you need any help get in touch through the blog below.
