Honu Baritone Ukulele

Size Me Up
Sizing Information

Soprano -Soprano is the smallest of the four ukulele body sizes and is the traditional ukulele size.  The Honu Soprano is perfect for kids learning ukulele or for adults who prefer the brighter tone of a traditional ukulele.

Concert -Concert ukuleles are currently the most popular ukulele body size worldwide.  Bigger than a soprano but smaller than a tenor, a concert uke is the perfect middle ground for most players.  This size is suitable for all ages, though small children may be better suited to a soprano.

Tenor -Tenor ukuleles are exploding in popularity thanks to the full, deep sound produced by their larger body size.  Bigger than the concert, the tenor is great for teenagers and adults that are looking for the most volume from their ukulele and extra space for their fingers on the fretboard.

Baritone -As the name suggests, a baritone ukulele is the largest and deepest sounding of all of the ukulele sizes.  Usually tuned like the highest four strings of a guitar (DGBE), rather than the GCEA tuning found on most ukes, a baritone is great if you have a background in guitar because you won't have to learn any new chord shapes.  They are also very fun if you are a ukulele player looking to experiment with a different tone.

Perfect for anyone wanting to dip their toe into the ukulele water, our Honu series was designed to provide as much instrument as we could at an entry level price.  The all sapele construction provides a warm tone, similar to that of mahogany, but the Honu is more durable and less susceptible to humidity and temperature changes than our solid top models, the Mano and Kohala.  As with all Honolua Ukuleles, it includes premium features designed to produce the best tone possible at an affordable price, including bone nut and saddle for better clarity and sustain, open back machine heads for tuning precision and eco-friendly wood selections.

    Setting the Bar

    Honolua have managed to set the bar incredibly high with their Honu line. I went with the baritone model as I was looking for an alternative to a travel guitar.

    I’m impressed by the quality of the instrument, and when compared to other affordable or entry level baritone Ukes the fit and finish really sets the Honolua above the rest. The mahogany’s beautiful grain, the bridge, sound hole art, open gear tuners and the arched back are all small details that when combined together make this instrument feel like one double the price.

    Before purchasing the Honolua I checked out the competition at my local music chain store and all of their entry level baritone offerings were lacking in many, if not all of the small details mentioned above.

    This instrument will blow you away for the money.

    Baritone Ukulele

    I ordered a baritone ukulele and received it four days later(Canada) Really a great turn around on the order in these times.
    The instrument is extremely well constructed has a wonderful tone stays in tune better than I expected.
    Since I received it I have a hard time putting it down probably wouldn't if I did not have to sleep.
    Thank you Honolua

    Great instrument.

    I got this Baritone ukulele to try something different from my other sizes and I am absolutely amazed by how it sounds. It looks great and plays very well. Added an extra button and it is flawless.

    A nice find

    I'm a proud owner of a beautiful Honolua baritone of the Honu series! Great instrument well built with a good sound for a affordable price. The delivery was fast (1week) and it came with gig bag and a useful stand. The second strap button right on the spot i want!! + A link to a Honu ebook who help the uk player with chord and some stuff. I had already two uk from others builders (soprano & concert), i will get eventually an other concert uk made ''handmade'' in Canada and the Kohala serie concert talk to me! I love the idea for one ukulele sold one tree plant! Great philosophy!!
