Guitars & Ukuleles

Twigg Musique: your destination to find the perfect guitar or ukulele to express yourself. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced musician, our vast selection of guitars will meet your needs.

What's the difference between a guitar and a ukulele?

- Size: The first thing to notice is that a ukulele is generally 2 to 3 times smaller than a guitar, which will modify the resonance chamber and thus influence the sound produced. The longer neck of the guitar also allows for more frets.

- Strings: Typically, a guitar has 6 strings, either nylon or steel. Tuned to EADGBE, it has a greater variety of notes and chords. The ukulele, on the other hand, usually has 4 nylon strings. It produces brighter and lighter sounds due to its GCEA tuning.

- Tuning: Guitars are usually tuned in standard E-A-D-G-B-E, while the ukulele is tuned in G-C-E-A, although different tunings are possible depending on the playing style and musician's preferences.

- Sound: Due to their size and number of strings, guitars and ukuleles produce different sounds. Guitars tend to have a richer and deeper sound, while the ukulele has a lighter and brighter sound.

How many types of guitars are there?

We sell 4 types of ukuleles at Twigg Musique, namely:

- Acoustic Guitar: It produces sound naturally thanks to its steel or bronze strings. It is often used to play styles such as folk, blues, country, and acoustic rock.

- Electric Guitar: This widely popular emblem thanks to rock culture does not have resonance and requires an electric amplifier to produce sound. The amplified sounds and modules it produces can also be found in metal, jazz, or blues.

- Classical Guitar: This one has a longer neck and nylon strings. It is also called the Spanish guitar.

- Bass Guitar: This guitar is a bit special because it only has 4 strings! With its lower pitch, it is perfect for accompanying a rock, funk, or jazz band.

Are there different types of ukuleles?

- Soprano Ukulele: Also called standard ukulele, it is the smallest and most traditional of ukuleles. Its pitch is the highest and its tuning is G-C-E-A.

- Concert Ukulele: Slightly larger with a slightly lower pitch than the soprano. Its size is perfect for learning the ukulele.

- Tenor Ukulele: Even larger and lower in pitch, this ukulele can also be found tuned to D-G-B-E (identical to the first 4 strings of a guitar).

- Baritone Ukulele: It is the largest and lowest-pitched of ukuleles, resembling more a small guitar as it can reach 30cm! This one is only available with a D-G-B-E tuning.
