Honu Concert 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.  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.

Model - Honu

Honu Series

Our Honu Series is perfect for the beginner ukulele player. The all-laminate sapele construction provides a full, bright tone and the laminate construction means it is durable and less susceptible to humidity changes. Aesthetically, it’s fairly simple, but it never compromises on sound quality.

For more information on our models and the differences between them, check out our Buyer's Guide section on models here.

Size - Concert

Currently the most popular body size, the concert ukulele is slightly longer, and the body is slightly bigger than the soprano, at 24".  This provides a bit more space for fingers on the fingerboard.  It will sound quite similar, tonally, to the soprano, but the slightly larger body will produce a little more volume and depth thanks to the larger resonating chamber.  We suggest the concert model for anyone seeking the traditional ukulele tone, but who may be a little more comfortable with a bigger body.

    Love my Uke!

    I purchased the Honu Concert Ukulele. This is a wonderful Ukulele for a beginner. Such beautiful craftsmanship as well. Shipping was fast. It came with a really nice bag to store your instrument in as well as a wood pick. Let me tell you, if you're interested in getting an Ukulele, don't look any further and buy this Uke!

    Daughter love her Ukulele

    My daughter loves her Ukulele. She has been using a guitar for 2 years and it was easy for her to transition from one instrument to the other. Honolua Ukuleles seem well made and sound great.

    Best Ukulele

    I was so excited to open my new ukulele when it arrived. The sound is amazing and excellent quality. Delivery was so fast. I have since ordered a tuner, stand and strap.

    Absolutely amazing!

    I'm an ECE teacher who loves to sing with kids by playing the ukulele! I needed to upgrade my old ukulele. I made a right choice! Honolulu ukulele itself is so beautiful made of good quality of woods and the sound is needles to say. I strongly recommend♡

    Honu Christmas with the Grandkids

    I was quite surprised by my wife's Christmas gift to me this year! I guess I'll be learning a few tunes over the weeks to come. From the videos, you'll see that the grandkids also have taken an interest in it! Thanks for making a nice instrument, not a toy!
