The 7 Best Concert Ukuleles [Experts’ Choice]

Ask almost any advanced ukulele player and they will say they loved a concert ukulele for a while on their journey. Although confirmed virtues, like Jake Shimabukuro, use tenor-sized ukuleles, they remember concert ukuleles during their rehearsals – certainly for a reason.

What is the best Concert Ukuleles?

If you want a concert ukulele that has it all, get yourself a Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele. Featuring a mahogany body, premium Aquila strings, and silver tuners, the 15CM is no doubt one of the best concert ukuleles in the market.

Reviews about it are all about how the 15CM produces an excellent sound because of its body construction. They also love that it does not just sound good, but also look good. However, some users say that the frets could have been filed better.

Why is Ukulele Easier to Learn?

Most guitar enthusiasts (or people who play for fun) prefer Ukulele as it takes very little time to master this compared to the traditional big guitar.

Before buying Ukulele, you must understand the tiny bits and details of it, because it is going to be helpful to your someday, and also you got to tell others why you picked up this certain Ukulele.. right?

Even for the smallest details such as frets, saddle, and shape of your Ukulele, Have a small understanding to choose the best one for you.

Types of Ukulele

This is how roughly we can classify the different ukulele’s based on their shape and size. The common ones are soprano (standard ukulele), concert, tenor, and baritone.

With this increasing sizes of Ukulele, the sound accompanies a gradual lowering of sound because of less resonance space in it.

So small ukulele’s has higher sounds, and bigger ukuleles have lowered sounds. Hence, Baritone ukuleles are preferred to make bass sounds in music. In fact, they resemble more similar to a guitar. In case you are looking for a guitar, do head over to our best beginner’s guitar guide.

The Soprano is the smallest in size, with almost 12-15 frets. With higher frets of 15-20 comes Concert type ukulele, Tenor with 12-25 frets, and finally Baritone ukulele with 18 or more frets.

Which is the Best Ukulele for me?

Choosing the right ukulele is important for better playability & feeling comfortable while holding the ukulele. This the same advice we give while buying guitars. It would be great if you can go in the market, or ask friends to get the feel & size of the ukulele in hand to understand the right one for you. 

If you closely notice, the size of the frets is smaller on the Soprano compared to the larger Concert or Tenor types.

Hence Soprano is better for small/normal finger-sized people…and Concert or Tensor for the rest.Go for Baritone ukuleles if you have large fingers and want bass sounds. Otherwise, a normal Soprano ukulele is the best for you.

Ukulele Price in India

The cheapest of all ukuleles in the market is Soprano, starting at a price of Rs. 1200. Other ukuleles start from Rs. 2500, and can go all the way up to Rs. 25,000. I highly recommend you to not fall for cheap prices, investing a minimum of Rs. 2000 will give you the best one.

Of course, this is to get the best ukulele that not only lasts longer but has better sound quality and is value for money.

How To Choose The Best Concert Ukulele For You

A concert ukuleles’ overall quality is judged based on its build, sound, tone, and price. Although I would love to give you an infinite list of ukuleles, I considered all of the above factors. These ukuleles are the cream-of-the-crop, the best-of-the-best, and are noteworthy discoveries. They will all last a long time and will be worth every penny, effort, and time you give them.

The price of the ukulele does not necessarily equate to quality. Your ukulele may be the cheapest or the most pricey in the market, but it may or may not be the best for you. That is why I featured models at various price ranges.

Finding the best concert ukulele that spells perfection is challenging. It has to be a complete package; quality sound, good build, and an affordable price.

Starting Out

When you start your venture as a ukulele player, you may not want to invest too much in the instrument. You will feel fulfilled just by owning a uke with a typical but satisfying build and appealing sound. That is the typical mindset of beginners. That is why a simple ukulele construction will do you wonders. They are not too pricey, typically made out of laminate wood, but a great starting point.

The ukulele bodies are meant to create a warm and lively tone, even if their designs are plain and simple.

After making a purchase, take the time to inspect every detail of its construction because the decent build of a ukulele is essential. It can affect not only the sound the uke produces but also the manner by which they are played. Check the tuners, neck, and frets. Look closely for wood cracks. Ensure that everything is in place: that tuners are tight, frets are even, the neck is stable, and the body is flawless (without cracks).

All these will have an impact on the tone produced and to your satisfaction as well. So to ensure your happiness through the uke, be a wise buyer and examine it thoroughly.

Moving Forward With Your Playing

The beginnings of learning any instrument are always the hardest. But your doubts and confusion will not linger for too long. As you venture forth on your musical journey with your uke, you will eventually face a crossroads. A lot of new ukulele models will excite you and make you want to upgrade. The more ukuleles you encounter, the sharper your keen hearing abilities will be.

You shall then find out your favorites, your likings, and your preferences for a particular sound produced by a specific ukulele model. It will be normal to admire or even envy the quality of other ukulele models. Your emotions will overflow along the way, and you will know for sure when is the right time for you to upgrade your instrument to make it suitable to your level and your aesthetic taste.

If, as a beginner, you choose a plain-looking ukulele, now is the time to add some embellishments. You may not need to buy a new uke but simply make improvements in its looks and, eventually, how it sounds. You can make some changes and modifications in your uke’s body-binding, rosette design, tonewood, wood top, etchings, and fretboard inlays made of abalone.

On your way towards becoming an intermediate ukulele player, expect that you will discover a lot about your personal preferences along the way, and you would want your uke to mirror them. Intermediate uke players usually play a uke that reflects their sound, and artistic taste, and style in playing. A uke will become an embodiment of the player’s uniqueness and personality, making the uke even better. And that is good news because a better ukulele is powerful enough to be able to ensure the following:

– Improved sound due to its higher quality materials

– Boosts your confidence

– Encourages you to practive even more

– Makes you confident when performing in front of a crowd

– Grabs people’s attention and interest in music

– Inspires others to pick up a ukulele or another musical instrument

By choosing from my list of the best concert ukuleles, you won’t make the mistake of having to upgrade in the near future, and the benefits you reap will be worth the added price tag in the long run. It will not only heighten your interest to play but will give you positive vibes all over!

Ukuleles are more than just an investment or a hobby. It is something that will paint you with joy. So if you are still indecisive as to what factor to consider when choosing the best concert ukulele, whether construction or looks, follow your heart, choose the uke that attracts you, a uke that you will value and will keep forever. Happy playing!
