    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?)

    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. Oh and the sound is even better! Great job Gretsch Now make some cases for it... 5/5 mactron99 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    banjolele

    0 5/5 uncawooz - See all my reviews This review is from: Gretsch G9470 Clarophone Banjo As a seasoned banjo and uke player, let me tell you this instrument is built like a tank. Very solid construction. The tuning keys are fine though they are friction (like a banjo) instead of geared like a guitar. As anyone who plays ukulele knows, it takes days and sometimes weeks for the nylon strings to stretch enough to stay in tune so yes, you will have to tune it frequently the first few weeks. And the friction tuners make this a little more difficult. But this is a hybrid instrument so some aspects are unique to a banjo and some are unique to a ukulele. I say, get it and have fun, but be prepared to stretch a little to accomodate this nice instrument. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 13, 2013

    Great sounding instrument!

    0 5/5 Jazzy (Maple Valley, WA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Lanikai Concert Banjolele (Electronics) Lanikai Concert BanjoleleI am thoroughly enjoying this instrument. It is well constructed and sounds amazingly like a banjo. It is simple to play, just like a concert uke and I've had so many compliments on it. I like to use the banjolele when performing in a larger room because it is loud enough that it doesn't have to be mike'd. I would definitely recommend this instrument to anyone who wants to learn a string instrument and does not have a lot of musical experience. It's an easy switch from the ukulele and I enjoy having the variety for my solo performances. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 12, 2010

    Heavy lifting

    0 4/5 Santa's Elvis - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lanikai Concert Banjolele (Electronics) This Banjolele has a nice sound, but is not easy to play. Don't even try playing it standing up. It's very heavy. A lot of steel and wood. It is loud and can be played well with other instruments. I have similar instruments from the 1800s that are easier to play and sound just as good. For the same price you can buy an older one that doesn't require a workout just holding on to it. Let me add this, after owning it and having it serviced by someone who knew what they were doing...It is a better sounding instrument than I gave it credit for. After having it adjusted properly, it's tone matches it's volume. I am raising my rating by two points. It is still cumbersome, but, it rings out a sweet, heavy sound as well. Unique in it's quality. I would recommend it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 28, 2011

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (Southern Illinois) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mel Bay presents 50 Three-Chord Christmas Songs for Guitar, Banjo & Uke (Perfect Paperback) Great for beginning guitarists that don't know many chords. Great to use it with beginning students for easy chording and also for more advanced students for sight reading melodies of uncommon Christmas songs. I recommend using a capo on some songs because the key is too high or too low to sing in some tunes. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 1, 2013

This review is from: Gold Tone Banjolele Banjo Ukulele (Maple) (Electronics) I love the shape!, It is very heavy though, so you can't walk around with it...I guess you can, but my arm felt like it was going to fall off!
