These stunning soprano ukuleles are aimed at players who are looking for an upgrade instrument. They are beautifully finished with a cream coloured binding and laser etched decal around the soundhole. The responsibly sourced zebrawood body has a stunning natural grain and gives a rich and bright tone. They are also impressively loud for their small size! As with other step-up instruments from the Octopus range, the hardware consists of a classical guitar style bridge and enclosed chrome geared machine heads, which hold their tune brilliantly. The distinctive OctoWave headstock shape lets you know from a mile away that this is a genuine Octopus instrument!
As always, Octopus Ukulele use Aquila Supernylgut strings – the benchmark in quality throughout the ukulele world. These ukuleles are also supplied with a black, Octopus branded canvas gig bag. The bag has a side handle and single adjustable shoulder strap for carrying options.
Got a Uke, a well known ukulele reviewer, was absolutely blown away by the quality of the cheaper pine model of this uke and the higher end Octopus models are even better put together. All in all this is a fantastic (and very easy on the eye!) step-up instrument at an extremely reasonable price.
