Introducing the Octopus Rosette ukulele

A fabulous new addition to the Octopus range, the Rosette Series is here to take your playing to the next level. A continuation of the natural evolution of the Octopus brand, this ukulele is aimed at the intermediate player or adult beginner and is endorsed by renowned ukulele teacher and performer, Andy Eastwood.

A truly stunning ukulele, the Rosette series features two eye-catching, intricate laser etched designs. And with quality features such as a NuBone nut and saddle, Aquila Nylgut strings and chrome diecast tuners it also plays like a dream.

Octopus believes an instrument should encourage and inspire the player, which is something the Rosette range has no shortage of – you won’t want to put your ukulele down! Each ukulele also comes with a quality gig bag and is supplied in a colourful box.

Unique laser etched design

Inspired by our very own ‘Octopus’ brand, this ukulele design features ‘Kane’ the Octopus, as well as a variety of marine life and an intricate wave pattern surrounding the sound hole.

There are two designs available - see our full range for additional options.

The electro-acoustic

This electro-acoustic ukulele features a single coil pickup with volume and tone control knobs. Simply plug a standard 6.35mm jack cable into its socket to connect any amp or PA for that added power needed to fill larger spaces or even outdoor venues!

Carefully selected materials

Octopus ukuleles are built to be enjoyed for many years to come. The top, back, and sides are made of laminated open pore sapele wood which has been sustainably sourced and beautifully finished in a rich satin sheen. The side walls are also fully lined to increase projection and produce a high-quality appearance.

Quality components

Each component has been carefully selected, delivering excellence in every instrument and ensuring durability and a consistent tone. A tie bar bridge is accurately bonded to the body for excellent sound production and silver chrome diecast tuners offer reliable tuning in a shiny finish. The side walls are fully lined for sound projection and a high-quality appearance.

The Octopus Ukulele Academy with Andy Eastwood

In addition to being an official endorsee of the Rosette Series, Andy Eastwood is also working in collaboration with Octopus to create a series of educational video content of which a selection is focussed specifically around the Rosette range. With lessons on basic skills, building new techniques, chord reading and more there is a lesson for everyone. To view this content, head to the Octopus Ukulele YouTube Channel.

Graph Tech NuBone XB

Nubone doesn't damp string vibration like plastic - instead, it transfers the optimum frequencies to the ukelele. Essentially, this new material helps produce more volume and a better tone.

Aquila Nylgut® strings

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

Free carry case with every instrument

A next-level ukulele deserves to be carried in a next-level gig bag! We have created a beautiful, padded gig bag for the Octopus Ukulele, providing your instrument with the ultimate protection. Finished off with bespoke Octopus zip pulls, each gig bag has a pair of adjustable integrated backpack straps.

Size and range

The soprano (or standard) is the most widely used size of ukulele, measuring 21in (53cm) in total. It has twelve frets and a total range between C4 and A5.
