    Soprano all the way!
    If your uke is too loud, your neighbours are wrong.

    I tend to the extremes and play my sopranos and baritone, with a lot of tenor in the mix. Also ubass, but I’m not sure it counts as a uke. Haven’t tried the sub-sopranos. Yet.

    Mostly a tenor for fingerstyle, but a concert for strumming.

    Primarily soprano. Like was said before, baritone if I want something guitary. Just sold my sopranino.

    I thought I was odd for living on the extremes, but it's sounding more common than I expected.

    Concert most, soprano second, tenor third.....baritone, like never. I have one, but I haven’t played it in months. My guitars get more play time than my baritone uke.

    At one time I had a soprano, concert tenor and baritone. When I moved I kept the concert, but sold the others. I have since bot a soprano, tenor and other concerts. I have concluded that the tenor size is not for me, so I play the soprano daily and a concert.

    I mostly play concert but have bought a few tenors in an attempt to move to that scale. I can play tenor okay, but prefer the comfortable size of concerts. Haven’t really given sopranos a fair shot but maybe will soon.

    I'm a concert man. No reason other than the Goldilocks principle. But a few years ago I bought a nice solid top soprano just as a backup because I had a couple of things coming up and I kept worrying that something would happen to my concert and I wouldn't have time to get it replaced. I find now that when travelling I take the soprano to save space in my luggage and that I am playing it quite a bit more often. But I still reach for the concert most of the time.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    Concert only now.
    I tried tenor and soprano, but sold them. I have to go with what my fingers can do without pain.

    After playing guitar for almost fifty years and trying a soprano, which was difficult for me to form chords, I went tenor cutaway and nothing else.
