The Morris Brothers ukulele journey began a few years ago, with a discussion about how to bring the joy we experience as instrument players, to the wider (and significantly larger) group of ‘non-players’.
The ukulele quickly became the obvious choice — it’s easy to start playing, it’s affordable and so much fun to play with friends (and strangers)!
Birth of UKE NATION
So, we started building ‘UKE NATION‘ — a ‘one-stop’ ukulele shop.
Those who know us, know our key difference. Most other stores just ‘sell’ ukuleles — we are passionate about changing people’s lives through the joy of playing music — and the ukulele is that perfect instrument.
Other key differences:
You will NEVER pay full price for a ukulele. Full Stop!
We compare everything, so if a ukulele makes it onto our wall, you know it is a standout for the price.
We support and run ukulele evenings, support BUMS events, and are always looking for new innovative instruments and accessories to share with you.
The Australian connection
As you may be aware, the Maton factory closed for a significant period of time last year during Victoria’s COVID lockdown. It may be 9-12 months before Maton ukuleles are available again, using the legendary Aussie Blackwood.
