Tenor Ukuleles are the largest of the three most popular sizes. Favoured by popular virtuosos James Hill and Jake Shimabukuro, the Tenor ukulele has become the preferred size for many professional players.
The tenor ukulele measures on average 26″ inches (66cm) in overall height. It offers a louder overall sound, with greater sustain in the notes making it more suitable for playing melody. The neck usually joins the body at the 14th fret and they will usually have more than 15 frets so you can reach higher notes.
Because of its length, the Tenor Ukulele has higher tension in the strings. Beginners may find the Tenor ukulele is harder to strum than Concert or Soprano which offer more flexibility and a softer strum.
