The Concert ukulele was created in the 1920s and is medium in size, slightly larger than the classic Soprano ukulele. The Concert ukulele has a total length of 23 inches or 58.4 cm.
Apart from being extremely comfortable to play due to its small size and the characteristic curves of guitar, the concert size of the ukulele also brings comfort to the musician for reaching the higher tones thanks to the fingerboards’ larger length.
These ukuleles play with a characteristic deep and loud sound and, as the name implies, they are suitable for concert performances on stage, but they are also a great gift for beginner musicians and a good companion for traveling performers.
Recently, this musical instrument has gained attention and popularity with its sweet and melodic rounded tone. Many performers prefer it thanks to its softer tone.
The concert ukulele shares the same tuning mechanism – GCEA, as in the other ukuleles – tenor ukulele and soprano ukulele. This size of the instrument creates a much more lasting effect on each note played.
