Soprano is the smallest size of the 4 main ukulele sizes. Soprano size is a typically a good choice for women and children as they are easier to play with smaller hands. Of course, they are fine for men also, however if you are a male with big hands, we suggest a concert or tenor size. The soprano ukes produce the familiar "twangy" ukulele sound that we are used to hearing. Most soprano ukuleles have 12 frets, they are very convenient to travel with and suitable for most beginners.
