Turtulele: 8 Reasons Why It’s A Ukulele That’s Oozing With Awesomeness

I love ukuleles and I am always looking at the coolest designs available in the Philippines.

Guess what?

I didn’t have to go beyond Cebu just to catch a glimpse of perhaps the coolest ukulele design I have ever seen.

Let me introduce to you Turtulele!

As to why it is oozing with awesomeness, I have 8 reasons for you!

1. Turtulele has a unique turtle shell design.

We all want to stand out at some point in our lives, don’t we?

The makers of Turtulele made sure that whenever you buy their ukuleles, you will stand out!

Why wouldn’t you?

Just look at the turtle shell design!

It’s hip, cool and most of all, it’s awesome!

2. Turtulele has a wide variety of patterns and colors.

Whatever the color you want, you can have it!

Whatever the design you want, you can have it!

If it’s not available, they can create and customize one just for you!

And you know what?

Each ukulele is hand-painted!

You can even have the cool ones with LED lights!

3. Turtulele is weather-proof.

In case you didn’t know, most guitars and ukuleles are not weather-proof.

What do I mean by that?

Take for instance, I bought an ordinary ukulele at Mactan.

Then I brought it with me to London and started playing with it.

Eventually, the ukulele becomes broken.


Because ukulele is made out of wood and wood reacts to the environment it is surrounded with.

Chances are, if you bought a ukulele made in the Philippines, it won’t work well if you’ll play with it in London.

But that will never happen with Turtulele because it’s made out of fiberglass!

4. Turtulele is water-proof.

Since it is made out of fiberglass, expect their ukuleles to be strong, sturdy, and water-proof!

Now you don’t have to worry if it’s raining cats and dogs, it snows like crazy, and if the sun is literally frying you!

5. Turtulele is break resistant.

Ukuleles made out of wood have the tendency to break if the owner does not know how to handle it well or was handled without care accidentally.

Fiberglass is a strong material that is not easy to break so it’s a great

This is how awesome is made! [Turtulele Facebook Page]

6. Turtulele is made in the Philippines.

All the hybrid ukuleles are manufactured in Cebu thanks to the craftsmanship, creativity, and ingenuity of the Filipinos!

7. Turtulele is light-weight.

Since it’s made of fiberglass, it’s light-weight but music-heavy!

8. Turtulele is best for kids, and adults too!

Since it is a uniquely-design ukulele, available in wide variety of patterns and colors, weather-proof, water-proof, break resistant, made in the Philippines and light-weight, wouldn’t you agree that this is a great gift idea and pasalubong or souvenir for the kids and adults alike?

    The turtulele is definitely unique! Is there a difference with the sound quality since this is made of fiberglass instead of wood?

    THat is very cool. I am not even sure I would recognize the sound of a ukulele if I heard one.

      Just listen to Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” and I’m sure you’ll become familiar with the sound of a ukulele Robin. ^_^

    that’s pretty awesome, as long as there isn’t any turtle harmed on the production of the awesome adorable ukelele I have to say, a nice tiny guitar to acquire

    • Channel Marie Imperial

      No turtles were harmed during the production of Turtulele, Nova. It is now illegal to use turtle shells to make a ukulele. It is made of fiberglass. ^_^

  4. This is really unique take on an old instrument! I’m not a musician so I can’t speak to tgs technicalities so I only hope it sounds good. 🙂

  5. These are so cool. My son went through a time when he was really interested in learning to play the ukelele.

    • Channel Marie Imperial

      I hope he will continue to play it even if he’s an adult. I’m an adult but I really enjoy strumming and creating music with it. ^_^

    Ukelele is the first string instrument I know when I was in grade school. I always wanted to learn how to play this. When we went to Bohol in Loboc river i saw kids and adults play this instrument and it makes me jealous.

  17. That is so unique and pretty! I want one for my girl.
