Academy series

Octopus has been providing high quality beginner ukuleles for almost a decade, and the Academy series carries this tradition forward.

It is a core part of the Octopus brand philosophy that an instrument should encourage and inspire the player. This is especially important for a first instrument which can make the difference between a lifelong passion and a passing fad gathering dust.

The selection of colors for this new wave represent a new take on the most popular finishes of previous Octopus models, re-imagined to excite the creative senses.

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.

Build quality

Octopus ukuleles are built to be enjoyed for a lifetime. The new range continues to surpass expectation – an improved production process bringing the highest quality sound and finish yet.

Each component has been carefully selected and constructed, delivering excellence in each instrument. A classical guitar style bridge is accurately bonded to the body for excellent sound production, tuning pegs are geared like a guitar so they hold their pitch for longer and all side walls are fully lined for stability, sound projection and a high quality appearance.

Octopus have even smoothed all edges and every fret for a finish surpassing that of many more expensive ukes.

Find your new muse

Be moved to song by the approachable elegance of the Octopus Academy series. Your first few chords are printed on the box, which will get you serenading in no time!

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 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.

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.
