Developed in the 1920s, this is a larger version of the soprano Uke. It shares the same tuning but has a deeper, louder tone. Because it is slightly bigger, many people find this the preferable option to the soprano as they can get their fingers around the frets with greater ease, especially if they have bigger fingers.
