    Fun little banjo & a true value. Charley Simmons Professional Musician.

    5/5 Charles Simmons - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Oscar Schmidt OUB1 Ukulele - Satin (Electronics) I've had the OUB1 for two weeks now & am delighted with the quality & playability. It took very little setup & sounds great. Some people seemconfused about bridge location. The distance from the nut to the 12th fret &12th fret to the bridge should be the same. Measure from edge of nutto center of 12th fret to edge of bridge. Minor adjustments can be made if necc. This is true of any banjo. I've played it with our ukulele group &it stands out when doing a lead. Concert size is nice. I like it better than most banjo ukes I've played that cost twice as much.I think it's a real value.

    5/5 Glenda Clemens (Norman, OK) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Recording King RK-U25-BR Madison Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) My husband loved it. Some other reviewers have complained about the string placement on the fretboard. If they are not right you have to adjust the bridge. This is ALWAYS the case with banjos. My husband has two other ukuleles and a large Sterling Professional banjo. This is small and fun and fits nicely with our group of old codgers playing ukes on Tuesday evenings.

    Superb from Packaging to Sound

    5/5 MountainMojo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) Excellent Banjo Ukulele. Superb combination of a banjo and a Uke. Great, great sound and very easy to play. Setting the bridge was a bit intimidating (not having perfect pitch), but a there are several good youtube videos that can guide you along. The packaging was pure bomb proof. It was in the included case, inside the factory box, inside another huge box with bubblewrap. As this was a gift, I wanted to be sure that there were no Christmas morning disasters. Not even close. This is a closed back BanjoUke (Banjolele?) and it fairly heavy. Apparently one can remove the back to reduce the weight, but I wouldn't want to mess with the tone of this lovely Kala instrument. Very pleased with the seller, Kala, and the end product. If you play the Uke, and you know you want to add to your collection, this is one to really think about. Enjoy.

    Great birthday present

    5/5 Jackie Schutz - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) My husband bought this for my birthday. He let me pick the banjole I wanted. The reviews were very helpful in picking this instrument. The strings are still stretching and it needs re-tuning often, but it sounds great and I was able to play within a few minutes after taking it out of the box! We took the back plate off of it. I've played it without a hand towel in the pan and with one as recommended by my more experienced banjo friends. It is so much fun!

    Bad buzz

    3/5 Jeremy Jensen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) Bad buzzing on the e-string by the bridge. Other strings are fine. Adjusting bridge, tail piece and drum tension made no difference. For $300 you' d expect it to work without having to pay a luthier to make it playable.**Amendment: after a trip to the luthier who fixed the buzz and lowered the nut--every fretted note was bent because the nut was so high--it's been great. Great sound, easy playability, beautiful instrumnet. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 24, 2016

    WOW! I'm impressed!!!!

    WOW what a banjo ukulele! I'm so impressed! I have a couple of ukuleles and I wanted a banjo uke. I tried the ones at Sam Ash and Guitar Center and to be truthful they sounded like crap. Then I heard about the Gretsch Banjo uke. Good luck on trying to find one. Then Amazon had 2 of them. I pulled the trigger and ordered one on a Monday and got it on a Thursday! Quick! What a quality instrument. I took it to Sam Ash to give it a once over. Boy was the tech impressed. He said he did have to do anything to it it was set up perfectly! He thanked me for bringing it in so he could play it!!!! I can't put it down. I hold it even when I'm watch TV! The wife is kind of looking at me like I'm some kind of weirdo! She said are you going to give her a kiss! So now while I'm watch TV I have my wife next to me and my Gretsch Banjo Uke on my lap. Great quality and craftmanship on the instrument.
