Give a Ukulele
Give a Ukulele
Still looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? The ukulele is here to save the day!
There's no such thing as "too young" or "too old" to learn to play the ukulele. That is what makes it the perfect gift! Yes, adults, we mean you. 2020 has not been kind to anyone, and even the most serious and stressed out adult in your life needs to relax and smile from time to time. Gift them a ukulele, and they may just leave 2020 with some positive memories.
Where to Start
First, you have to decide what size ukulele to buy. Uku offers four sizes ranging from small to large: soprano, concert, tenor, and bass. Ukuleles are highly versatile instruments, and any model you choose will be sure to bring happiness to your loved one's face. But, it may be important to consider the size of their hands to ensure they don't have to overstretch on an instrument that is too large, or crunch their fingers on one that is too small.
As a rule of thumb, soprano ukuleles are most comfortable for those with small hands. Concert and tenor models are great for average sized hands. The tenor ukulele, being the largest traditional ukulele is ideal for some one with very large hands.
Check out these blogs to learn more about the difference between soprano, concert, and tenor ukuleles:
If you have a player in your family who loves their guitar or bass, the Fisherman U*Bass is what you are looking for. Plug it in or play acoustic, but keep in mind, it is tuned differently than the other models we mentioned. The bass ukulele is actually tuned the same as a bass guitar!
Below are a few other models to check out:
