KA-BNJ-BK-C (Bag Included)
The Banjo ukulele is patterned after banjolele from the 1920s and 1930s — the height of the instruments popularity. The Banjo ukulele has a Remo Weatherking head with a loud and resounding projection.
COMES WITH A COMPLIMENTARY SETUP.
All my Banjoleles come ready to play!
Bridge in place, action set, skin tightened, neck at the right angle. Basically all you need to do is tune up with the FREE complimentary tuner I include and off you go.
Most times when you get your mail order Banjolele the neck will be attached to the body, but that's about it. The skin will not be tightened and usually the bridge will be in a plastic bag with the hoop adjustment tool. If you can do your own banjo setup that's cool. If not its a trip to your local repair shop to get your banjolele setup before you can even play a song, that sucks!
No Problem I can set your banjolele up for you southpaw players, no extra charge.
The banjo ukulele is recognised for its distinctive tone and ability to project sound in solo and ensemble settings. The banjo ukulele was originally designed by Alvin Keech in 1917 and was popularised by musicians such as George Formby and Roy Smeck. George Harrison favoured the instrument in later years and recorded his song “Any Road” on banjo uke.
Banjoleles or Banjo Ukuleles are they are sometimes called are fast becoming my favourite type of Ukulele to play. They are loud and proud! But being so loud you have nowhere to hide if you hit any bum notes.
WHEN QUALITY MATTERS.
Kala has a commitment to quality that I respect. They are easy to setup, the fret placement and intonation is top notch and the neck angle and bridge height is well sorted so they are easy to play right up and down the fret-board with really nice actions.
Bottom line, Kala banoleles save me time in setup, the Kala banjos don't get returned with faults and best of all ... my customers are very happy.
Why avoid the Cheapie Banjoleles?
There are plenty of banjoleles out there in the market place but not all banjoleles are equal. Especially in the Banjolele field the saying "You get what you pay for" holds true.
Cheap banjoleles often have very high Actions, action is the height of the strings over the fretboard. The high Action of cheapie banjoleles makes playing beyond the 4th fret near impossible on some banjoleles. And the non precise fret placement often makes them sound really sour and out of tune.
