    Default Octopus Soprano uke - REVIEW

    Staggeringly good little ukulele for virtually no money.

    Would it be terrible to want one JUST because there is an octopus on the headstock?

    Would just add here - had a few messages - the older Octopus ukes were not that great - this review (if I did not make it clear enough) are a complete review and remake of the model launched this year. Beware old stock being sold on!!

    Thanks for the review, Barry! I bought my Dolphin largely on your recommendation and never regretted it, although that was before the Octopus (I still love my Dolphin).

    Do you know where the Octopus is available, other than eBay?

    Southern Ukulele Store in UK stock them, and I think will ship to Switzerland. You will pay a little more on shipping cost, but no import duty

    Thanks! I'm asking more for friends who might be starting out, something to recommend, and they're mostly in the US. I'm good with my Dolphin I bought on your recommendation, plus a couple I've acquire since! I will look around, though, because I like to keep up with what's out there to encourage people to join in the madness.
