Thread: Any Other Soprano Lovers?

  1. #1

    Default Any Other Soprano Lovers?

    Wow. Been around the bush a bit with ukes over the years, and I just consistently find myself rockin' a soprano.

    Can't help it. To me, the best,

    Anyone else like this?

    I ask since it seems as though the Experienced Players end up with tenors.

    You missed the discussion last month.

    I should update though as I've actually been playing my baritone a lot lately (to the point I'm looking at classical guitars). That uke mostly sat in its case for a year before I really got into it. Other than the bari, I only have sopranos, although I might get another long neck sop someday.

    Sopranos all the way, for me. I've tried all sizes, but the sop. is a perfect fit for me.

    When I started out, I found concert scale best for me, so I have a couple of long necks for when I want a soprano type sound, plus a tenor scaled soprano that gives more sustain. My ukes of choice tend to be either my long neck concert, (tenor scaled concert), or my soprano long necks.
    I just find the actual soprano scale too small for me, I'd love to try a sopranissimo, but doubt that it would work for me either.

    My soprano is mainly for travel, I find concert necks a bit more comfortable.

    I love the soprano sound, but prefer the slightly roomier concert scale. My concert Flea sounds rather sop-like, plus it fits in sop cases and gig bags, so it gets most all the travel duty, and reentrant sop-sounding assignments. Even so, I'll always have at least one sop in my collection for the unique sound.

    I like all three popular sizes. When conditions will be crowded, a soprano is better than a tenor.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Since getting a Martin 5K soprano, I don’t play anything else
