    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

    I purchased this banjolele (banjo ukulele) after combing the internet, ebay, and pawn shops looking for an antique in good condition. I ended up going with this new one, after considering all the costs of repairing an old one to ideal playing standards. This one is constructed from maple and finished with antique brass hardware that gives it the "old" look. The neck and resonator has maple binding. The REMO head is also finished with an "old" calfskin look. There is also a brass finished arm rest. It is quite loud as stated before; but I brought the volume down with a hand towel I wrapped around the coordinator rod inside the resonator that just barely touches the inside of the head. (THUNK!!!) The resonator, buy the way, is easily removable with four thumb screws. The action is a little high, and I might adjust it as time goes on. If you attach a strap, Ukulele Mike shows you where he's attached his on a youtube clip. You won't bend anything that way. It... 4/5 KanakaCurt - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    BLUEGRASS HEAVEN

    5/5 Addy Weiler - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lanikai Concert Banjolele (Electronics) Setting up the bridge was the only qualm I had with this gorgeous instrument - it has now been long enough that the strings are staying in tune thus this instrument is now fantastic. I am loving the sound of the banjo without the price, and this is a great instrument for those looking for a unique ukulele. I play bluegrass myself and this is perfect for it. Don't hesitate because of the price, it's well made and pretty to boot. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 8, 2014
