How Much Is A Ukulele

So you have decided to buy a Ukulele, probably your first Ukulele but you do not know how much they cost! Before you do and want to know how much you should spend there are a few things to consider because there are many different prices and qualities of makes you should take in to consideration.

The great thing about buying a Ukulele is that though they are an amazing (yes I love them) instrument, they are cheap compared to other instruments (and easier to learn). The prices on Ukuleles vary, from 20 dollars up to 600 dollars but of course, like anything you are about to buy it is all about the quality, but also the reason you are buying it in the first place.

Why Are You Buying A Ukulele?

Price should definitely be the factor in this case. Are you buying a Ukulele just to decorate a room in your house or stick on the wall? Or do you want to learn how to play it, start off with a basic but do not know how much to spend?

It is easy to find a Ukulele especially online these days for around 20 dollars that can be a perfect ornament or used to start out learning to play, though I recommend spending a little more say 60 dollars (which is nothing for a musical instrument) if you want to take up playing or you have a child that is keen. It is always better to buy a quality one especially when starting out. Doing it correctly from the beginning can only be beneficial.

Do ukuleles sound different depending on price?

Again, it is not really the price but the quality and what the Ukulele is made from, actually also the type as there are four main types, The Concert, Soprano, Tenor and Baritone. Stay away from plastic made and looking Ukuleles, pure rubbish and only dust gathering ornaments.

Choosing either a solid top or laminated Ukulele will influence the quality of the sound and also the price of the instrument. Quality Ukuleles are made from various top class wood such as Maple, Mahogany, Cedar and Spruce and these are known as Tonewoods. All these factors have influence on sound and price, but again it all depends what you want to use the Ukulele for.

How Much Is A Ukulele So?

Well, If you are a keen novice as I am and starting to learn Ukulele I recommend finding out what type of Ukulele you would like first, how far you want to go and how dedicated you plan to become, because if you plan to be an avid player, spend up to 60 dollars starting out. You can get a decent Ukulele for this price no problem, and as you progress and become a better player you will know if you want to purchase a better quality Ukulele or even a Unique and Vintage one.

If you have a child wanting to start out I still recommend spending the same (it is not to much for a musical instrument) as it is better for anyone even a child to start of on the right path using a quality yet reasonable Ukulele.

I recommend buying the best ukulele you can afford as starting off on a cheap Uke will only hold you back, because you’ll think the lousy sound is due to your technique and be discouraged.

Buy an Instrument that you feel comfortable with, that feels right, sounds right, an Instrument that will inspire you and make you feel like you are making progress and sounding great. Enjoy and happy playing!
