    I'll save the better choice for others. Those are all good Uke manufactures.

    As far as size goes, the tenor will typically give you a bigger sound. If you plan to travel with it, the concert is easier to travel with.

    Good luck!

    You should buy a Standard ("soprano"). You did say you wanted a "ukulele", didn't you?

    You have been making a LOT of posts lately, asking the same questions over and over, constantly doubting yourself.
    Make up your own mind. Stop asking people to tell you what to do!

    There's no objectively "better" ukulele. You need to choose for yourself what you like.
    If you ask 1000 people, you will get 1000 unique answers. There's no right answer.

    Is concert or tenor better for beginner?
    There's no answer to that. A beginner can begin with any size ukulele.

    Should you buy a cheap ukulele first? Or go straight for a higher quality one?

    Well what do you think? You buy a cheap ukulele, you will get cheap quality. It may be good enough to 'test' what an ukulele is like, but it will be nowhere as good as a $400 one. What are the pros and cons of that? For goodness sake, think about it.


    What would I buy if I had $400?
    I would get this:
    http://www.theukulelesite.com/pono-m...any-tenor.html

    But not because it's the ultimate choice that everyone should pick. But because I personally like the features of this uke:

    -All solid mahogany giving a rich, deep tone
    -Impressed with Pono's products
    -Adjustable truss rod is nifty (but not compulsory) feature in my opinion
    -Sound sample video is great!
    -The Ukulele Site will do a setup for optimal playing.
    -I like tenors.
    -The description on the website says they reckon it's one of the best sounding ukuleles for that price. I agree with them.

    Here's a novel idea go to a store and play both sizes and see which you like better.

    I know what's it's like to go back and forth, back and forth. My sympathies ��. In my opinion, (and I've been playing for about 3 years now and have played a variety of brands and sizes), the KoAloha Opio and Pono brands are the best in your price range. My first choice would be the KoAloha Opio and second choice would be the Pono MT that Kissing suggested. I once owned the Pono acacia tenor and it was a good ukulele, I think, but I didn't love it's tone. Currently, among other ukuleles, I own the Pono MB- the baritone version of the Pono MT and I love it's deep rich tone.

    I agree. What's comfortable for one person is uncomfortable for another. $400 will buy a nice uke, no matter what size.

    I think this comes across as a little harsh - although perhaps a single thread might have served the OP just as well

    Certainly there is no objectively 'better' but if you asked 1000 people I would think it highly unlikely that you would get 1000 unique answers. Much more likely is that you would see some consensus begin to emerge. The OP has had considerable fewer than 1000 responses to his various questions and already there can be seen a lean toward the Pono and Kala brands. Surely that's a valuable function of a forum like this. And I feel that people shouldn't be discouraged from accessing the hive mind

    Edit: I post from the perspective of someone very familiar with 'pre-significant-purchase-anxiety-syndrome'.
