These octopus ukuleles are excellent value for money. With their quality pine bodies, mahogany necks, rosewood fingerboards and smart metallic 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.

Aggie our ukulele expert says:
This Octopus uke in 'natural yellow' is esentially a mini guitar. It's easier to carry around, easier to strum, fewer strings - the perfect starter instrument! As beginner ukuleles go, I've found that the Octopus UK200s really are unbeatable. The finish is top quality and the Aquila strings make a good, clear sound. Do bear in mind that the tuning can take a week or two to settle and the strings may need pre-stretching - see this blog
for really helpful instructions on how to pre-stretch. The bag won't last forever but it's weatherproof and the zip works so what more do you need?"
