Fact: Learning to play a musical instrument makes your kids smarter, nicer and happier. We at Loog strive to make it fun and stimulating for children to learn music, so that they can develop the cognitive and social skills that will help them live a better life.
We offer what we (and others) think is the best guitar for children. But it is true that there are many other options, some of them costing much less than a Loog. So why Loog?
Most guitars for kids are simply cheap, scaled-down replicas of a standard guitar. And because they have six strings anyway, the neck is still too wide for a child to play comfortably - let alone easily. Plus, cheap guitars tend to be cheaply made. It makes sense to avoid spending a fortune on a beginner's instrument, but by going with really bad quality build and materials, chances are your kid won’t feel engaged enough to play.
So what about ukuleles? Ukuleles are great - if what you want is a ukulele. The problem is that many people end up buying a ukulele because what they want is a small, portable, easy-to-play guitar. And if that’s what you want, we think a Loog is better suited for you. You see, a ukulele is an entirely different instrument: it has its own strings, its own tuning and its own sound. Loog Guitars are really just 3-string guitars: they use regular guitar strings, they tune like a guitar, they play like a guitar, and they sound like a guitar. So if you want to get a ukulele, you should definitely get one (they are actually fun to play along with the Loog!). But if what you really want is a small, fun guitar, we humbly propose that you consider a Loog.
