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.

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.
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® Kids Colour strings
Each ukulele comes fitted with Aquila Nylgut® Kids Colour strings to aid with note recognition. These are perfect for large group ukulele classes, making learning and teaching a little easier, and much more fun! 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.
