Which ukulele is right for me?

Live Oak Public Libraries has two kinds of ukulele available: Soprano and Concert Ukuleles.

But what's the difference between the two?

Soprano ukuleles are the most common size and make the traditional ukulele sounds.

The instrument size and tight fret spacing on these ukuleles make them the best option for younger players, though they are suitable for all ages and skill levels.

Concert ukuleles have a larger body and longer neck.

Their larger size gives them a fuller, warmer sound compared to soprano ukuleles.
