Riptide Soprano Uke

The uke is based on two small guitar-like instruments which were taken to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in the 19th century. Ukuleles gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century, and that popularity has spread internationally. They are an important part of Hawaiian culture. And they are a lot of fun to play!

The tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction, We have a great selection of ukuleles, with many different brands, sizes, styles, and prices.


Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes:
Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone.

Standard, or Soprano Uke
The soprano is probably the most popular size of ukulele. It's small and extremely light and portable, and makes the sound most recognizably associated with ukuleles.

Concert Uke
Concert ukuleles are slightly larger than sopranos. They have a slightly fuller and louder sound, which makes them perfect for playing along with other instruments.

Tenor Uke
Even larger than the concert size, the tenor ukulele typically displays greater volume and tone than smaller size models, which makes it good for players who like to solo.

Baritone Uke
The baritone uke is the largest of the ukulele sizes, carrying a much deeper sound than other sizes. Tuning on this size is often the same as the bottom four strings of the guitar (DGBE) instead of the traditional GCEA.
