    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.

    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?)

    Obnoxiously loud and plunky sound. Makes you want to scream: "I've got no sustain".

    5/5 HonkyTonk Hero (Denver, CO USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Gretsch G9470 Clarophone Banjo Once you figure out where to place the bridge, and get your strings stretched out, this uke is a hoot. Best for faster paced music as it has no sustain, just that plunky banjo sound.This is not comparable to the Gold Tones (they are twice the price). Intonation is very poor the further you move up the neck, but it is consistent across the strings. Playing up the neck, does not have the same resonance as open chords, (typical of most stringed instruments), but if you plan on playing open chords that it isn't that much of a problem. Put on an Aquila Red low G string to get another octave and a better balanced sound.I still give this a five star rating for the amount of shear entertainment and joy that you will get from playing this uke!

    banjolele

    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.

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
