Ukuleles and Guitars: the Main Differences

  1. 1. Ukuleles and Guitars: the Main Differences Bobby Powell, Greenville SC
  2. 2. Introduction  A lifelong music appreciator and teacher, Bobby Powell is the education coordinator for Musical Innovations, a Greenville, SC-based instrument distributor. Bobby Powell's responsibilities include managing special events and inventory ordering and invoicing, among others. Musical Innovations primarily offers woodwinds, brass, percussion, and string instruments. One of its more popular items is custom-designed Kala Ukuleles. Ukuleles, in a sense, are compact guitars. They're more like guitars than any other instrument, but smaller in size, sound, and price.
  3. 3. Ukuleles and Guitars  The Kala Ukuleles promoted on Musical Innovation's website cost as little as $39.99 (although some are more than $1,500), while an average acoustic guitar generally costs around $300. Ukuleles are easier to play than guitars, given that they have fewer strings and fewer notes to learn, but guitars have almost two more octaves of range. While both are used primarily in intimate settings, the ukulele has an advantage over the guitar for singers in that it allows them to place more of an emphasis on their voice.
