Gremlin Music is a major British Importer and distributor of Folk style musical instruments founded in 1981. Whilst they do distribute other peoples instruments in the UK, and I believe they own the Hobgoblin Music Shops, they also distribute a number of their own branded ranges. They no longer use the main Gremlin name on Ukuleles, (its Gremlin Music Stands), though they have in the past. There are two Ukulele ranges they do brand and distribute

Blue Moon

This is the budget line and has taken over from Gremlin. The range includes other chordophones as well as Ukuleles like Mandolins, Guitars and Banjos; but no Banjoleles. On the Ukulele range there are Soprano Tenor and Baritone only, starting with a Colorful Soprano range. They are made in China or Romania, mainly laminate, and there are no extra string options, but it does include the ƒ hole mandolin bodied Jumbo Tenor made by Jisheng


This is the more expensive, (I've seen it described as), semi-professional line. Again there are a lot of different instruments with this brand name, even more so than Blue Moon. There are also more wood choices and more solid options here too but some of the ranges are still laminate. The Ukulele ranges come from either Indonesia, (the 60's and 80's model numbers, and the rumour is, its the same factory that produce Oscar Schmidts), or Vietnam, (the 20's-50's and 70's model numbers). This brand does include Banjoleles, (the usual Daewon rebrands) and a brass bodied Concert Resonator Ukulele, (the AXL one). The Ukuleles come in all of the usual scale sizes from Soprano to Baritone plus Baritone Bass, Tenor Lili'us and Taropatches. The number ranges more directly refer to the woods used to make the instruments, rather than the county of manufacture though I'm not going to try and decode it here. Some of the better, (30, which is Koa) ranges were apparently designed by Phil Davidson, though they are still made in Vietnam.
