Which type of player are you?

Some real talk about ukuleles

Ten THOUSAND hours? Has anyone really questioned if that's how long it takes to be good at something?

Your first lesson is to forget the constraints society loves to impose.

When your brand-new instrument arrives, you almost want to savor opening the box. But your excitement can't bear it any longer.

Being a family owned, German-based musical instrument company, at Ortega Guitars, we value a couple key things about our Keiki Series uke.

These instruments have to be accessible to any player, even if you're a casual beginner, and their pristine build needs to give you that feeling of "okay, I'm never putting this down" right out of the package (after a quick tuning adjustment).

Imagine where you could be—even 7 days from now

Naturally easy to play, the Keiki Series ukulele from Ortega Guitars is a well-crafted instrument fully capable of giving you quick wins making music. With a little bit of learning, you'll be rewarded almost immediately. Insane practice hours not required.

Your time is better spent playing around the campfire with friends or just strumming for fun and relaxation.

Don't be fooled

It's easy to think, "Why so small? Is this a toy"?

The sopranino scale is the smallest in our catalog, but this ukulele responds with a broad range of frequencies to fill any space with rich sound, and it can be enjoyed whether or not you know anything about music. And here's a perk—the small neck means you won't be straining your hands to play chords.

Designed in Germany with a traditional sound and look in a lightweight, compact scale

Fine tone woods with laser etching

We use okoume wood to craft the body, neck and headstock (this is a rich tone wood that's used as a direct substitute for mahogany). It delivers a sound full of warmth, depth, resonance and clarity.

Top grade walnut is used for the fretboard and bridge that adds a high-end look with classic sound.

All wood surfaces are finished in satin with an open pore on the body, neck and headstock. Features a laser-etched sea turtle rosette.

Open gear tuning machines

The four white nylon strings on this ukulele , are tuned with open gear tuning machines.

Open gear machines add less weight to the headstock, allowing the neck to resonate more freely.

This style of tuners also has a throwback look to create a subtle vintage vibe.

Sopranino size

The smallest in our catalog of ukuleles, the sopranino size (scale 284 mm, 11.18") is easy to hold and lets you play chords with practically no strain on your hands.

This size is great for any level of player, and its compact design is convenient when traveling.

(It's also the perfect size to store out in the open on a shelf in your home, office or studio space).
