A Ukulele Magazine For The UK - and About Time Too!

No disrespect to my readers elsewhere around the globe, but I have found that the ukulele print magazines that are out there are (whilst lovely things) a little USA centric. Can I say that? Well, I just did.  So for a while now I was wondering when somebody would fill the gap in the UK market.


UKE Magazine


Step forward Matt Warnes, who you may know from Omega Music, with a personal side project of his own - UKE magazine! A mag for the UK at last!

So, in view of the fact I think that's an exciting and welcome development for the UK, and the fact he is one of the 'good guys', I thought it warranted a mention on Got A Ukulele.  I'll be having a closer look when issue 1 is in print, but for now you can pre-order it for the very reasonable cost of £4.90 with free postage.

(And sorry USA,  I still love you, but if only there were more of the glorious ukes you feature in your periodicals available over on these shores!)

You can pre-order your first copy of UKE magazine here - http://omegamusic.co.uk/buy/uke-magazine-issue-1-the-uks-dedicated-ukulele-magazine .

Quite frankly - why WOULDN'T you? I mean, it's got Phil Doleman beaming at you from the front cover!!

  3. It is Robin, but the magazine isn't part of Omega - Matt just worked there - in fact he no longer does - set up his own store under the World Of Ukes brand

Got A Ukulele will always be free to view - help keep it that way!

If you enjoy this blog, donations are welcomed to allow me to invest more time in bringing you ukulele articles. Aside from the Google ads, I don't get paid to write this blog. Call it a labour of love! And, no, I don't get to keep the ukuleles that are loaned to to review...
