Video: Which Ukulele Should You Buy?

In recent years, a string of artists have incorporated the ukulele into their professional recordings, transforming its traditional reputation from more of a whimsical supportive instrument to a serious musical tool in its own right. For beginners, the ukulele makes a great starter instrument because it's fairly easy to learn. And to professionals, it offers an interesting extension to their tonal palette.

The ukulele's surge in popularity has brought with it a more complex choice of offerings, with lots of brands developing new lines of ukuleles with different body sizes, wood, and features at a variety of price points. In our video above, Joe Shadid looks at four common varieties and offers plenty of advice for how to find the one that's best for you.
