    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.

    Oscar Schmidt Banjolele

    5/5 George W (Puyallup, WA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Oscar Schmidt OUB1 Ukulele - Satin (Electronics) I've been playing this little jewel for about a month, and can find nothing to complain about. The fit and finish are just fine, it comes with Aquila strings, so it's a great sounding instrument. You do have to place the bridge properly, as it comes separately packaged. Not to worry! Anybody can do it. Go to YouTube and look up banjolele bridge placement. I had it done in 5 minutes. Once you have the bridge set, mark the spot with a pen on each end for future reference. The size is concert, the drum is a Remo and 8", as opposed to the puny 6" ones you find on competitive brands--it looks more balanced with the neck. Excellent tuners, and a very good, projecting sound; more banjo than ukulele. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2014

    5/5 Gail - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Luna Ulu 8-Inch Concert Banjolele (Electronics) This is a very nice Ukulele. 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

    Not very well engineered

    2/5 Michael J. Jones (Hewitt, TX USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dunlop 7828 Bill Russell Elastic Banjo/Ukulele Capo (Electronics) The way the low-tech eyelets are set into the stretch band that reaches around the neck makes it far too easy to scratch your instrument's finish. There is a flap designed to go between the eyelets and the wood, but it's a major headache to keep the flap perfectly in place at the same moment you're trying to stretch the entire thing and hook it around the instrument's neck. The 7828 is just surprisingly poorly engineered. It's too inexpensive to justify the hassle of returning it, but I don't intend to keep using it and risk scratching my ukulele. I guess I got what I paid for. I'll undoubtedly purchase a better capo. I strongly suggest that you do, too.

    Works on a mandolin too

    I use this on my mandolin, it is easy to use once you have the trick of it, first this thing has a long end with eyelets on it (that the other reviewers fear will scratch the neck of their instruments), and a short end (designed to prevent said scratches). To use place the capo on your strings with the short end facing you, use your left thumb to hold it in place with the short end dangling just below your thumb, next loop the long end over the back of the neck using your right hand to pull it under the neck and then up toward your thumb, this will trap the short end under the long end and prevent the long ends eyelets from touching your instruments neck, now just rotate your left thumb out of the way so you can buckle the strap in place and you are all set.I prefer this capo over the other 2 I have because it is so tiny, barely bigger than the first two joints of my pinkie, and yet it does the job it was designed for, its small size means I can toss it in my mandos... 5/5 Al (Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Does the job.

    4/5 Holly W. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dunlop 7828 Bill Russell Elastic Banjo/Ukulele Capo (Electronics) This is a simple, cheap option for a capo. I just recieved it today and spent a few minutes playing with it on my soprano ukulele. It isn't as easy to use as other capos, but once you figure out how to use it properly it's a breeze. Another plus is that you don't have to remove the capo to put it on another fret. I'm recieving a baritone ukulele tomorrow, so I'll update if I have any issues using the capo with a different neck size.So far, I recommend it if you don't want to spend a fortune on a capo and don't mind taking an extra few seconds to put it on correctly. If you perform with a ukulele you may need something quicker to use, but using it while practicing at home it would work perfectly.Update: This capo worked well with my baritone ukulele, as well. Just make sure it's set up properly, and you're golden! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 28, 2011
