We asked ukulele enthusiasts everywhere via email, the answer to that question could be found in the comments under this post.
What sizes do ukuleles come in?
From the first review, it’s obvious that it took a large sample size to reach 100% agreement on ukuleles size.

“I use an iut as a ukulele but I can’t play in my car with the uke in place, it sounds funny and hurts my ears”
You want a ukulele that is comfortable; a ukulele that is comfortable for you. This is what the majority of our readers picked:
A big number of us said you can’t play on the iut with the uke in place in the car, as it sounds funny.
“I like how my uke looks when I play it in my car … I can hear it better…”
“The sound is louder when I’m sitting on the wheel and the neck seems to be slightly longer”
Most of our readers picked standard ukulele sizes ranging from 7 to 8 1/2″, with another 4-5% choosing a size 2.
