    Recording King Banjo Uke

    I wanted a soprano banjo uke for travel. I own a couple of homemade concert scale banjo ukes, but I wanted something I could stuff in my backpack. I have played some of the older soprano banjo ukes and enjoyed playing them.The $200 price is good. I have built a couple of banjo ukes and spent about $100 for the hardware, bridge and head, so this is a great price for a real banjo with a tune-able head.The shipping and packing were excellent. It was purchased through Amazon.The painted finish is good. The frets are nicely finished. The chrome tuning machines work OK.The strings are OK, but I will put on better strings when I wear these out.The tuning head looks a bit over-sized and thicker than it needs to be. It would be nicer if it was modeled after some of the antique banjo ukes.The nut had square edges and I found my hand snagging on the edges of the nut. It took me a few minutes to round the sides of the nut with a... 4/5 BobN - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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.

    Kala Concert Banjo Uke Comparison

    I 'test drove' the Kala concert along with a Gold Tone soprano and Lanikai concert banjo uke. The Kala sounded dull and didn't feel as 'playable' as the other two . . . . . . at first. However, the shop keeper changed out the original fluorocarbon strings with Aquilas - sound improved (brightened up a bit). Next we added a slightly higher bridge than the original - more improvement and removal of a fourth string buzz. Finally we tightened the brackets about a half turn or slightly more than as it was shipped (subsequently, I've tightened the head a bit more and now the sound really 'pops'). After spending an hour toodling around on all three, I ended up purchasing the Kala - I prefer the warm sound that leans more toward the ukulele end of the sound spectrum (although banjo component still clearly there). To my ear, the Gold Tone and Lanikai are decidedly more toward the banjo end of the sound range. The Gold Tone, to me, is the more 'banjo sounding' of those two, whereas the... 5/5 James P. - See all my reviews This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) I 'test drove' the Kala concert along with a Gold Tone soprano and Lanikai concert banjo uke.

    Nice little banjo uke

    4/5 T Man (Arizona) - See all my reviews This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) Just got this banjolele. it is definitely a lot heavier than any of my ukuleles, but that was expected. It has a nice sound that is definitely more banjo than uke, but the size is more uke than banjo. Exactly as expected. I really like the concert size.One thing to note about the description - on most sites the Kala concert banjo ukulele (8 inch head), is said to be an open back design. That is not the case. It has a closed back, but the plate can be removed to make it an open back. The 6 inch Soprano is an open back.Overall seems like a fun instrument to add to my ukulele collection, which I just started.

    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.

Bought it as a gift for my daughter and she loves it. Very good sound and good quality. It has to be set up. I didn't want to set it up wrong so I took it to our local music shop and had the bridge and strings put on correctly. It only cost me $25 or less to have this done. This is a normal thing when shipping a string instrument. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2014

    I really hate to write negative reviews

    2/5 Karth - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Luna Ulu 8-Inch Concert Banjolele (Electronics) I really hate to write negative reviews, but I was really disappointed with this instrument. I'm a professional guitar and uke player and I really got into banjoleles when I was in San Francisco a few weeks back. I picked up a Gretsch concert series and LOVED it. I saw this instrument and immediately fell in love with it because of the aesthetics. I made a big mistake. This instrument does not have nearly the tone or resonance of the Gretsch I bought for the same price. I adjusted it as much as I could, sent it back and got a replacement and tried again...still inferior in comparison. I cannot recommend this instrument for much other than a cool looking display piece. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 14, 2015

    Goldtone Banjolele DLX

    I purchased this Banjolele DLX based on a sentence in Goldtone's site which says "It's design incorporates an arched top which lends itself to the playing style of George Formby". More about George below. The set-up upon receipt was EXCELLENT either done by Goldtone, the distributor or the retailer. Head was properly tensioned, string height was perfect, bridge in proper position, and neck angle was correct. The physical condition was also excellent in that there were no scratches, chips, dings, etc. One of the few of my many instruments that could be taken right out of the case and played and enjoyed without tearing it apart.Some other reviews indicated the tuners would slip and the banjolele could not be kept in tune. This referred to an older design when Goldtone used vintage 'friction' type tuners. These have now been replaced with geared tuners so this is not a problem anymore. Some web retailers are still using an older picture of the Banjolele which shows the old... 5/5 BanjoGuy - See all my reviews This review is from: Gold Tone Banjolele-DLX Banjo Ukulele Deluxe (Maple) (Electronics) I purchased this Banjolele DLX based on a sentence in Goldtone's site which says "It's design incorporates an arched top which lends itself to the playing style of George Formby".

This review is from: Gold Tone Banjolele-DLX Banjo Ukulele Deluxe (Maple) (Electronics) these instruments /can/ be pricey... but this is one of the cases where you get what you pay for. this was my second ukulele and I wanted to get something that was just a tad bit different than the rest; so I settled on the idea of getting a banjolele. after doing a lot of research and figuring out everything that there is that makes an instrument most ideal, I found out that it was the item description for the BUS-DLX.
