A quick online search for a ukulele will offer up many results selling for around £20 (or $30) and all looking very like each other. Playability, tone and appearance of many of these instruments is often inconsistent or questionable.

We make Octopus Ukuleles to be enjoyed for a lifetime. This is due in no small part to a host of features rarely found in instruments in the Octopus’ price range.

Each ukulele comes fitted with Aquila Nylgut® strings as standard, the best in the world for intonation and tone. Aquila produces approximately 300,000 ukulele strings in their Italian factory every day – that’s enough to re-string 75,000 Octopus ukuleles!

Octopus Ukuleles (student models) come supplied with a branded carrying bag, in strong water-resistant nylon with zipper opening. A convenient way to keep your instrument safe when on the move.

Some more important features

Lined side walls

The side walls of the body are fully lined for stability, sound projection and high-quality appearance.

Superior bridge

The classical guitar style bridge is accurately bonded directly to the body for excellent sound production and reliability.

Tuning pegs

The tuning pegs are geared like a guitar meaning the strings are easier to tighten and will hold their pitch for longer.

Fretboard finish

Every edge and all the frets have been smoothed and finished to a standard higher than many more expensive instruments.
