Introducing the Octopus UK230 Rosette ukulele
As part of the continuing evolution of the Octopus Ukulele brand we are delighted bring you the Octopus Rosette series. A brand new range for Octopus Ukulele, the Octopus Rosette is a next level instrument aimed at the intermediate player or adult beginner.
The Rosette is a truly stunning ukulele due to its intricate laser etched design. 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 an iconic piece of Japanese artwork depicting the power of the ocean, this ukulele features a stunning wave design intricately etched onto the body. The sound hole is also surrounded with a wave pattern rosette for additional detail.
There are two designs available - see our full range for additional options
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.
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 ukulele. 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
Concert ukuleles are slightly larger and longer than the standard soprano at 23in (58cm), and they have a few extra frets on the neck meaning a slightly larger range. Also, the extra size makes the concert have a louder and fuller sound as well as allowing for more space between the strings.
