Black Populele Ukulele
The DRUME Music Populele is a smart ukulele. What does that mean? It means that Populele has a 72-LED fretboard and connects with the Populele Smart Ukelele App via Bluetooth. The App shows exactly how you can play your favorite songs, tracks your progress and performance. For beginners, this feature is a huge PLUS since they can easily start their musical adventure with guidance from the tool; for experienced users, it can help to increase their repertoire, both in quantity and quality.
Although Populele comes with this innovative twist, it is still a traditional and acoustic ukulele with high quality sound without the App and the LED fretboard.
The ABS fingerboard, 18-tooth closed button and HPL synthetic fiber are improved quality elements of the product for new experience level. The Bluetooth has 4.0 distance and the battery you can use to play the ukulele is 2xAAA (The battery is not included with the package).
Populele is compatible with Android 4.3 or above and iOS 8.0 or above. You can download Populele Smart Ukelele App from the App or Play Store.
Populele Smart Ukelele App
There is an interaction match between the App and the LED light. The App has voice recognition, guiding and helping through usage, with the rhythm. The app is regularly updated so you can access unlimited music and content. On newest versions, you be also able to build a band in it.
Bluetooth is only available for connection with the App – It does not work on speakers.
How to charge Populele
Our smart ukulele can be charged with a regular smartphone adapter with USB to Micro USB cable. The cable is connected on the left side of the instrument and when the LED on the last fret lights up it will show the charging progress, from left to right. It usually takes about 3 hours to fully charge and when it is done the 4 LED will not light up anymore. It can last up to 10 hours once fully charged.
How to tune Populele
In the App, under the “Tools” menu, choose “Tuner”. You must rotate the tuning peg to change the pitch level of each string. Adjust the peg and repeatedly pluck the string until the needle goes to the center. The instrument usually uses the most common C6 GCEA tuning.

I must say I love this thing, more for its design and technology rather than for the actual musicality of it. It's a great twits to a traditional instrument and the gain is in the way it was conceived. I find it would be better for experienced musicians, that can play with its full potential
This ukulele is a superior instrument: high quality and extremely well thought out design. The attention to detail is insane, extraordinary technology features. It's the perfect combination of traditional and new
Super high quality, great material and design. The sound is exactly how I imagined and the smart feature makes the experience even better, definitely worth the price!
what an amazing instrument! a classic with a futuristic twist, love the smart technology and I think this is one of the best purchases I've made ever
