Soprano -Soprano is the smallest of the four ukulele body sizes and is the traditional ukulele size. The Honu Soprano is perfect for kids learning ukulele or for adults who prefer the brighter tone of a traditional ukulele.
Concert -Concert ukuleles are currently the most popular ukulele body size worldwide. Bigger than a soprano but smaller than a tenor, a concert uke is the perfect middle ground for most players. This size is suitable for all ages, though small children may be better suited to a soprano.
Tenor -Tenor ukuleles are exploding in popularity thanks to the full, deep sound produced by their larger body size. Bigger than the concert, the tenor is great for teenagers and adults that are looking for the most volume from their ukulele and extra space for their fingers on the fretboard.
Baritone -As the name suggests, a baritone ukulele is the largest and deepest sounding of all of the ukulele sizes. Usually tuned like the highest four strings of a guitar (DGBE), rather than the GCEA tuning found on most ukes, a baritone is great if you have a background in guitar because you won't have to learn any new chord shapes. They are also very fun if you are a ukulele player looking to experiment with a different tone.
Limited Edition models are our way of expanding our ukulele lineup. Limited models are built with the specs of one of our three regular models (Honu, Mano, Kohala Deluxe) serving as the foundation, but we substitute a key ingredient to create a completely different tone or look. Limited models are just that, limited.Each one is produced in very limited quantities, and as they sell out they will be replaced by new limited models throughout the year.
Perfect for anyone wanting to dip their toe into the ukulele water, our Honu series was designed to provide as much instrument as we could at an entry level price. The laminate ebony we chose for this Limited Edition boasts bold, unique wood grains and a crisp, snappy tone, but retains the durability against humidity and temperature that our Honu series is famous for. As with all Honolua Ukuleles, it includes premium features designed to produce the best tone possible at an affordable price, including bone nut and saddle for better clarity and sustain, open back machine heads for tuning precision and eco-friendly wood selections.
Our Limited Edition Ebony Honu Series is perfect for the beginner ukulele player. The all-laminate ebony construction provides a snappy, crisp tone and the laminate construction means it is durable and less susceptible to humidity changes. While the appointments are simple, the bold, unique patterns on each piece of ebony are anything but.

Size - Soprano
The soprano ukulele is the traditional body size for a ukulele. At 21" long, it is the smallest body of the bunch and provides a bright, punchy tone. Once the most popular option, the soprano is now the most popular choice for kids, or for grown-ups who want the most portable instrument.
