    What different size ukes do you own and play in 2020?

    Check all the sizes that you currently play in 2020. I’m not asking your favorite, but just what all sizes do you really play. I’m listing the big four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, baritone. Really, there’s a continuum of sizes. If you play a 15-inch scale super soprano, it’s a soprano if you think of as a soprano. You’ll have to decide yourself in some cases. If you have a large body & scale tenor maybe it’s a baby baritone for you. Just say it is the size that you consider it is.

    I’m pretty sure that the tenor size will be the most played. But, I’m curious what all sizes people are playing these days.

    Personally, I currently play soprano, tenor, and baritone sizes. It’s not that I don’t like or haven’t played lots of concert ukes. I just don’t own a concert uke in 2020.

    I own 4 ukes, and all of them are concerts. My Cocobollo is a 16 inch scale concert, the others are standard 15 inch scale. I've tried other sizes in the past, and found concert to be my happy place.

    I sold my Ohana soprano last week. I had loaned it to a lady during the holidays and actually forgot about it. She called last week and wondered if I would sell it to her. It is the first ukulele I've sold and the only ukulele that I've owned that wasn't a concert. It
    leaves me with three concert size ukuleles. Two of those three I play pretty regularly.
    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.

    New to uke here, so I only have one: a tenor. I'd really like to get my hands on each of the other sizes/scales, though.

    Slightly OT, but it may also be interesting to hear what everyone started on.

    I've got a couple of dozen (I think) sopranos, one concert, one tenor. The latter two are hardly ever played.
