Introducing the Octopus Ziricote concert ukulele
The open pore ziricote offers a most unique look to this concert ukulele. Often referred to as a “spider-webbing” grain figure, its medium to dark brown colour range is truly beautiful. Boasting a stunning design with a range of quality features, you’ll fall in love with this ukulele at first play.
Part of the Octopus ‘Special Wood’ range, this ziricote open pore soprano ukulele produces a fabulously rich tone with great projection. The natural step up from a student ukulele, it is perfect for those progressing players who would like another to add to the collection. And at concert size, it is ideal for larger hands.
Each ukulele features the highest standard of finish, including perfectly rounded off frets to protect your fingers, NuBone nut and saddle as well as Aquila Nylgut strings for optimal tone production. Whether you’re practising at home or playing along with your ukulele band on stage, this ziricote open pore ukulele will not only sound and feel great to play, but will look stunning too!
The materials used in each Octopus ukulele have been carefully selected for tone production and longevity. A tie bar style 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 dark brown webbed grain of the ziricote wood finish is exquisitely contrasted with a turquoise imitation Mother of Pearl rosette. This ukulele also features the iconic Octowave headstock with an Octopus logo.
Graph Tech NuBone XB nut and saddle
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 23” (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.
