    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?)

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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 6, 2013

    Not a good purchase!!!

    0 1/5 Taylor (North Carolina, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Eddy Finn Banjolele Series EF-UB-1 Ukulele, Mahogany Brown (Electronics) I am a music teacher and I want to start a uke program. I wanted to buy a banjo uke to use in class. When I got the instrument I was so excited. Unfortunately I could not get the instrument to tune correctly. On banjos the bridge will most often be the problem with intonation so I attempted to set the bridge in place...with no luck. I then took it to a local music shop to see if anyone could help me. They took a look and said it was a cheeply made banjo uke and the reason it will not tune right is NOT due to the cheep strings or the bridge but because the neck was both straight and concave. On string instruments the neck should be either all straight or all concave it should NOT BE BOTH! So DO NOT buy this instrument it is not worth the money!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 23, 2013

    Two time loser

    0 1/5 Teacher Peter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Eddy Finn Banjolele Series EF-UB-1 Ukulele, Mahogany Brown (Electronics) I read the reviews on this banjo ukulele, and they were sterling. Too bad the product wasn't. The first one came delivered in two boxes. The outer box was smashed on one side. The inner box looked o.k.,so I opened it.The tail piece was out of alignment. The instrument could not be tuned. One of the strings was slipping off to the side as a result of alignment problem. It was a mess. I sent it back and had them send me another banjo ukulele. This one arrived in a UPS bag, with the instrument in a box. It seemed to be o.k. but when I opened it up, I found that the white vellum head was out of alignment. It had machine oil all over the tuning gears making it impossible to tune also. The bridge was not grooved deep enough so that one of the strings keep slipping out. I sent it back as well. What a disappointment. This banjo ukulele was a birthday present from my wife. I'm waiting to see how long it will take to get all my money back. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 25, 2013

This review is from: Eddy Finn Banjolele Series EF-UB-1 Ukulele, Mahogany Brown (Electronics) Great quality for the price! I love my banjolele!! Could maybe use a string upgrade, but other than that this is such a high quality, sturdy instrument. Such fun to play, I recommend fingerpicking with it because that really brings out the banjo twang! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 10, 2012

    0 5/5 Tonya Mills - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gold Tone BUC Concert Banjo Uke Banjolele w/Case, Tuner, and Stand I love my baby banjo-uke which plays like a uke and sounds just like a banjo :),CONSThe tuner was missing when it was shipped.I called the company and the tuner was shipped/recieved in two days.And there wasn't any instructions that came with the uke...I had to search the net to figure out how to place the bridge without breaking anything.PROSThe case. Good quality, a hard case which is needed since the uke has a detachable bridge. And it also comes with the key used to tighten the drum (just with it came with instructions to tell you how to do it).The stand it comes with is study and displays the uke. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 5, 2015

Tone is nice and it is a lark to play. You will need to set the bridge when it arrives, but that is easy enough to do. I was able to figure it out with help of a few YouTube videos. Case is sturdy, and all in all this is a great set for the price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 17, 2015

When I ordered this instrument for our 6 year old granddaughter who loves music I wasn't sure it would be the right thing. She is beyond toy instruments but not really ready for a true instrument. This was as close as you can get to perfect. In addition, the craftsmanship is superb so the banjo/ukulele can hang on her bedroom wall and supplement the decor. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 23, 2012

    Great for really old banjo ukes

    0 5/5 keeeeef - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Aquila AQ-90 Banjo Uke High G Ukulele Strings (Electronics) These were for an antique banjolele restoration job, already had super nylguts on my other uke, easy choice. They play and sound great. These particular strings are supposed to sound warmer than the other Aquila banjo ukulele strings, probably a good thing for these little old models as they tend to sound kinda dinky. Can't say the old girl sounds like a million bucks (never really did, nice uke however), more like 8 or 9 hundred grand though, basically these strings make it sound as good as it possibly can and I love the tone very much, no way it ever sounded this good before, more of a lower end than I expected. These take several days to break in and hold their tune well. Why red though? 0, April 30, 2015
