The ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument, which was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants, mainly from Madeira and the Azores. It gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century and from there spread internationally.The tone and volume of the instrument vary with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.They were once common in a concert size, but now the tenor size is more common for six-string taropatch ukuleles.
Ukuleles are generally made of wood, though variants have been composed partially or entirely of plastic or other materials. Cheaper ukuleles are generally made from plywood or laminate woods, in some cases with a soundboard of a tonewood such as spruce. More expensive ukuleles are made of solid hardwoods such as mahogany.
Typically, ukuleles have a figure-eight body shape similar to that of a small acoustic guitar.
These instruments usually have four strings; some strings may be paired in courses, giving the instrument a total of six or eight strings . The strings themselves were originally made of catgut. Modern ukuleles use nylon polymer strings, with many variations in the material, such as fluorocarbon, aluminum and Nylgut.People are simplified for size :21inch,23inch,26inch,30inch.
