Honu Baritone Acoustic Electric Ukulele

Size Me Up
Sizing Information

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.

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 all sapele construction provides a warm tone, similar to that of mahogany, but the Honu is more durable and less susceptible to humidity and temperature changes than our solid top models, the Mano and Kohala.  The installed UK-500T pickup system includes a built in tuner with 3-band EQ and is powered by included lightweight CR2032 batteries.  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.

    Beautiful uke for a great price

    I love my new baritone ukulele from Honolua. It has a bright, full sound and the construction is solid and beautifully finished. Easy to play, easy to look at with that fine Sapele wood. I already have a couple of ukuleles, but I was so intrigued by this product that I tried it anyway. I am so glad I did! This is my new go-to instrument. Thanks for making this great product!

    One of the few worthwhile Acoustic/Electric Baritone Ukuleles under $300

    This is solid choice for an acoustic/electric baritone. The sound is really bright and the wood choice is very beautiful. I will say, it's not my favorite baritone I've ever played, but for the price point, the features you are getting with the electronics, strap buttons and sound, it's worth looking into, especially under $200. It's a great addition to your lineup if you are looking for an A/E Bari.

    Honolulu Baritone Uke.

    I purchased the Honolulu baritone about 6 months ago. I have played it every day since then. Sounds great in acoustic mode and for more fun you can plug it in to any amplifier. The tone is very nice and the string spacing makes it very playable. Great price and sold by a Canadian company. Get it. You will love it!
