Size Ukulele

What size ukulele should I get?

I have been playing electric guitar and bass for 5 years and really want to buy a ukulele. I just don't know what size to get. Someone told me to buy a baritone ukulele because it would be an easier transition from electric guitar. I don't know though, I like the sound of sopranos better. But I think a soprano would be just a tad too small, so I'm thinking about getting a concert ukulele. What do you think?

They are not all the same!

The soprano is the traditional ukulele size and gives the brightest, most typical uke sound. Beginners can however struggle as the neck is so small. Concert and Tenor are the most popular for beginners (but cost a little more), as they have more space on the neck. Concert is tuned like a Soprano (and the uke song chords you find on line with chord boxes will 9 times out of 10 cater to the soprano or concert). Tenors can be tuned two ways, and the Baritone is normally tuned differently (called D tuning)

I personally prefer sopranos and concerts as to my ears the tenor, and the baritone especially, are getting to close to being guitars.

There is a link below that goes into uke sizes in more detail.

There is no wrong choice though!
