Soprano Ukulele Pros and Cons
- The “original” ukulele – a more classic sound than other sizes, which appeared more recently

In any case, owning a soprano ukulele will ensure no-one laughs at you or dances around you yelling “death to all concert, tenor and baritone ukulele owners!” *Please note, this has never happened*. On the contrary, the ukulele community is an unusually friendly and welcoming bunch.
