SPOILER: Finding the best concert ukulele is NO walk in the park.
So much so that if you even want hope of tracking it down, you need to first understand what you’re looking for – i.e. have a clear picture of what you value in a ukulele. After all, no 2 musicians are the same, so think there’s one ‘best’ concert uke would be a bit… narrow-minded.
It’d also mean that you’d never be asking this question, because there’d only be one concert uke on sale. The rest would have been drowned out by its ‘perfectness’… only they haven’t. In fact, concert ukuleles are not only some of the most popular & diverse ukes on sale today. Perhaps because of their tone & scale? Or their use by the likes of Billie Eilish & Grace Vanderwaal?
Either way, concert ukuleles are a tough cookie to crack – or at least, they were. See, if you find yourself wondering which is the best concert ukulele brand? And which are the best concert ukes for beginners & pros, be sure to read on. Do so & we’ll reveal all.

Buying a concert ukulele is a lot harder than it sounds.
Apart from the fact that more ukulele brands get added to the mix each year (many of whom make a concert uke), there’s also a LOT of factors to consider. Aside from size, there’s also details like: wood type, string length, tuning, the contents of a uke bundle & much much more to consider.

Here’s the best concert ukulele for beginners…
Being a beginner at playing any instrument is very rarely a walk in the park – & ukes are no exception.
Buy the wrong one & you could find yourself (A) finding it a LOT harder to master the basics & (B) pay a good chunk more £$€ for the privilege. In other words, you’re hindering yourself!! Playability aside, as a beginner you also need to look for a uke with decent tone, a good amount of accessories & (most importantly) one which doesn’t boast a 3 figure price tag. Unless you’re super well-off of course.
So to help you find the right uke fast, here’s what we consider to be the best concert ukulele for beginners…
