New for 2020

Octopus has been providing high quality beginner ukuleles for almost a decade, and the new model UK205/215 for 2020 is carrying this tradition forward.

It is a core part of the Octopus brand philosophy that an instrument should encourage and inspire the player. This is especially important for a first instrument which can make the difference between a lifelong passion and a passing fad gathering dust.

Supplied in a classic natural finish, this accentuates the colourful strings and gives you fantastic looking instrument..

Explore the depths of your inner musician with the most popular instrument of the moment, and trust Octopus to deliver a standard of instrument which belies the modest price point.

The UK's most popular school ukulele just got louder!

Octopus' new range of soprano and concert ukuleles now features an electric version.

A simple and no-fuss system, the pickup is a single coil with a 6.35mm jack socket.

With one tone and one volume control, you can just plug in and rock out!

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.

The concert ukulele is a slightly larger instrument, allowing for more space between the strings, as well as a larger body creating a fuller sound.

Build quality

These Octopus ukuleles are built to be enjoyed for a lifetime. The classical guitar style bridge is accurately bonded directly to the body for excellent sound production and reliability.

The tuning pegs are geared like a guitar meaning the strings are easier to tighten and will hold their pitch for longer. The side walls of the body are fully lined for stability, sound projection and high-quality appearance. Every edge and all the frets have been smoothed and finished to a standard higher than many more expensive instruments.

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 produces approximately 300,000 ukulele strings every day – that’s enough to re-string 75,000 Octopus ukuleles!

Free carry case

When not in use, your Octopus can protect itself from spills and splashes by hiding in your handy gig bag which acts as a carrying case, supplied free with every instrument.
