These octopus ukueleles are excellent value for money. With their quality pine bodies, mahogany necks, rosewood fingerboards and smart finishes, they're a superb beginners' instrument for people of all ages.
They have proved to be particularly popular with schools; the kids find them easy to tune and they love the bright colours.
Ukuleles provide a great introduction to chord structures, intervals and general having fun making music!
Octopus ukuleles are fitted with Aquila Nylgut strings, widely considered the ukulele world's best strings for intonation and tone.
Soprano ukuleles use re-entrant tuning, where the strings are not ordered from lowest to highest pitch.

The solid pine body and rosewood fretboard emit a warm resonance and the rich blended red colour gives this uke a classic look, which is particularly great if brightly coloured instruments aren’t really your thing. The fretboard is clearly marked which makes it easy for beginner players to learn chords; as something of a ukulele novice myself, I found this particularly useful! The improved gear-machine heads allow the ukulele to stay in tune for longer, so you spend less time tuning your instrument and more time playing it!
