Concert acoustic ukulele: wood types
Best quality and sound, most unique models
Solid wood means the ukulele is made from a 100% unique piece of solid wood. This is expensive to make, but they look and sound extraordinary. Solid wood is able to vibrate more freely, which usually gives them a nicer tone than the laminates.

Best value, durability and great sound
This ukulele is made from "sheets" of wood. Laminate ukuleles are made extremely well these days and can sound just as good as the solid wood ukuleles, if not better. They have extremely good durability which makes them suitable for kids, first timers and those who want to take their ukulele travelling.
