Your kid strumming to Beatles & Stones. On day one.
With its slim 3-string neck, the Loog Mini makes it super easy to form chords and play songs, even for kids as young as 3.
Learn on a Loog. Play any guitar.
The Loog Mini is about the same size as a ukulele, but plays and sounds like a guitar because it uses classical guitar strings and standard guitar tuning. This is why everything you learn on a Loog can be applied on a 6-string guitar as well.
The Loog App
The new Loog app makes it fun for kids to tune and play their Loog. There's a songbook with tunes by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, and even a monkey drummer to help them stay on the beat.
The Loog Mini In Action
Why should I get a Loog Mini over a more traditional beginner’s guitar?
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.
Why should I get a Loog Mini over a ukulele?
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 Mini 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. The Loog Mini has classical guitar strings and standard guitar tuning, so it plays and sounds just 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.
