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!!


  1. Looking forward to seeing this!

  2. Ordered..... looking forward to seeing that!

  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
