There is no absolute answer to this question, it depends on the player/person, style of playing (piano/banjo/guitar/etc.), the style of construction of the instrument, the quality of the wood, the string gauge (I use a D – G – B string gauge), your level of skill (I think I can play any style of music, but I’m starting to practice at the higher end of the scale – a good guitar player should have an aptitude for all styles), your ears, and the overall style of your musical group or group of friends.
I’m not saying there is a “one-size-fits-all” answer for determining a great acoustic ukulele but, based on what I’ve found, I think this should help in determining the sound/quality of an acoustic ukulele.
A few years ago, I was talking on the phone with my friend Tom, a wonderful electric violinist, who asked me if I had been playing ukuleles. I told him I had been playing basses, and then I said, “Oh, are you getting the kind of sound?” He laughed, saying, “I don’t think you should play bass, especially not on a piano.” I laughed, too, and told Tom, “Well, I’ve been playing, but a uke is the better instrument, right?” He laughed a little louder, and said, “Yes, but I think ukuleles have better sound.”
This is a good point to start with. A bass has a lot of different sounds – each is unique, and can be developed into a unique playing style. I’ve seen musicians use the ukulele to create something completely unique and distinct at the same time, to the point where they can make the bass sound almost like another instrument. They can create an amazing sonic variety, but it’s not necessarily for everyone. On top of that, some instruments can sound very quiet, others can sound like little drones. So, a good bass is all about trying to find the sound you like and trying to blend it with the ukulele’s sound.
How would you describe and describe the sound of your ukulele?
The sound is amazing! I can’t even describe; it’s like listening to an incredibly well made instrument. It’s very precise, and has the natural tone to my playing that I’m familiar with, and the ability to
