    Tenor. It's the only one I've used, but it works well for me.
    My ukes:
    Ohana TK-20 solid mahogany tenor "Tomo"
    Kala KA-BE solid mahogany baritone "Nagi"
    Mainland classic mahogany concert "Ayumu"

    Concert is my favorite. I suppose it is because the compact size, but, also the re-entrant tuning is pleasant. I love baritone ukulele also, especially when playing with a group of ukulele people. The bari adds some depth to the mix.

    I own 11 ukes, all different sizes and shapes including a baritone, a mandolin shaped tenor, a 1925 banjolele and a sopranino. Some are strung gcea and some are strung low Gcea. My favorite is my normal everyday soprano strung gcea. No matter how many ukes I buy, when it comes down to it, a traditionally strung soprano uke is my favorite. (but my baritone strung low Gcea is my second fav.)

    That's a very nice uke salukulady. Personally, I prefer concert size. I like that little mix between the higher tone of the soprano & lower tone of the tenor. Its not too big nor too small. Just right for me.

    My first love was standard soprano. I just love how it sounds with the whinney hawaiian. I recently got ahold of a hf-3 so now im starting to see the big fuss about tenors.

    The concert. Its the only one that I played, and the only one that felt comfortable in my hands.
