Spruce is known for its clarity, and dynamic range and response while ebony provides strong bass presence and responsive highs for a well-rounded sound profile.
Ukuleles come in many different shapes and sizes, this can sometimes be daunting for newcomers trying to pick out the right size for them. The Concert size is the Goldilocks size, larger than Soprano but smaller than a Tenor. The next step up from the soprano in size. The concert’s scale is about an inch longer, the neck is a bit wider, and overall it’s a little heavier than the soprano.
Larger Hands and Fingers enjoy the extra room.
The extra length allows for more frets with wider spacing between them. The concert size is great for players of any skill or experience level, but may be more comfortable for those with a bit larger hands and fingers.
Fuller Tone and louder too.
Being a bit larger in size, the concert has a fuller sound and warmer tone with more mid-range than the soprano. The concert also projects better than the soprano, making the volume a bit louder
SOLID WOOD UKULELE: The Spruce and Ebony Combination
Spruce has been one of the most common tonewoods on acoustic guitars for decades and it’s no surprise it has found its way into the hearts of uke players as well. There are many variances in Spruce wood strains but it is usually favored for its well-rounded properties that suit a wide range of playing styles. The wood is very stiff and relatively light which makes it great for full-on strumming and quite responsive to delicate fingerpicking. The sound is bright, full, and all-around probably familiar to most. It has a very recognizable look that can best be described as a light blonde color that yellows with age.
