The Octopus brand has been evolving ever since our first container reached the UK in 2013 and our mission has been clear from the start – to provide good quality beginner instruments which encourage the passion for music making for new-comers of all ages. We are constantly evaluating our processes, designs, branding and product range to ensure that the ukulele community can rely on Octopus!
The brand is based in the UK at our head office in Surrey. This is where the Octopus brand was born, and our full colour packaging and marketing materials are created. We are also connected with ukulele educators and specialists in various parts of the world as we develop supporting materials and online tuition content.
Production is handled by our partner factory in China who employ a skilled work force using the latest available technologies to help guarantee quality and consistency of product even at the entry level price point. We exclusively use Aquila® strings on all instruments, loved the world over for their quality and reliability.
We can fulfil Ex Works orders from either our UK warehouse or full container deliveries direct from the factory to destinations around the world. We already service customers in Spain, Korea, and Canada straight from our factory and are always interested in expanding our distribution network. Exclusive and non-exclusive agreements are available and as demand for the brand increases, we are looking for the right partners around the globe to help put Octopus instruments into the hands of musicians everywhere.
