Baritone ukuleles are the big daddy of the ukulele family. They are the largest and lowest of all the ukuleles.
They are usually tuned DGBE from low to high - the same as the top four strings of a guitar. Because of this, they are popular with former guitar players and people who are planning on moving on to guitar.
Baritone ukuleles seem to be particularly popular with new folk acts such as Rio En Medio, Michael Leviton and Josephine Foster.
