    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

    5/5 Kindle Customer (Norman, OK) - 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.

    5/5 Charles A Campman - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Recording King RK-U25-BR Madison Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) Well built, good tone. Stays in tune for a long time, once the new strings are stretched out. Comes with the bridge uninstalled so you have to look at the picture to get it in the right place. Altogether, I'm very pleased.

    Little Banjolele, Big Beautiful Sound

    5/5 Steven Broomhead - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Recording King RK-U25-BR Madison Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) This little banjolele really sounds good. It takes some work to adjust the bridge to get a good tone but I knew that when I purchased it. It took about a week to 10 days before it needed to be retuned each time I picked it up to play.Even though it doesn't have a sounder on the back to reflect the notes out and increase the volume, you can still made some loud, joyful noise with this.It seems well built. It shipped quickly and came well packaged. I regret I didn't buy a bag or a case when I bought this beauty. But I have been inspired by its cuteness to try and build a case for it.

    Solid Capo, but not perfect. I do think the finish on your instrument is safe though. Sorry for rambling.

    Like the title says, even though i've got a list of pros and cons, I'm really weighing in on the whole "scratch your instrument," conversation.If you are using the capo correctly, it should have two little flaps of fabric that cover the back of the neck and keep your instrument nice and safe. I do think it's possible to do some major damage to the finish of your instrument with this capo, but you couldn't do it if you had the capo on right. Just be sure to fold over the two little protective strips of fabric before tightening everything down.Pros:- Doesn't have the big handle hanging off the back. With the more common sort of clamp style capos, a fair amount of metal hangs off the back of the neck. That is fine on a bass or a guitar, where there is lots of room. On a soprano ukulele, there just isn't a ton of space. A capo like this, or the planet waves, or the shubbs, where they wrap tight the whole way around the neck, is way nicer when fretting... 4/5 Jeff (Pasadena, California United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

I used to use the spring and metal capos and found they got in the way of my fret hand. This is really comfortable and doesn't get in my way at all.Win!

    Fantastic!

    5/5 Zachary Gold - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dunlop 7828 Bill Russell Elastic Banjo/Ukulele Capo (Electronics) I knew this was a winner from the second I opened it. Though admittedly is tricky to understand how it works (it's just a little bar fitted between a threaded strap), once you do understand you're golden. Best 5$ purchase of my life, I sound so much better too! A small complaint is that the uke makes small buzzing noise with it at times, but this is usually due to not placing the capo in the middle of the fret. All in all it's not the best uke capo in the world, but it's very pretty and very convenient, and it has an absolutely out of this world value.

The banjolele had sounded kind of dull with the original strings, and it now has a more lively, banjo-y sound.I had also tried the LaBella banjolele strings, but the Aquilas win hands-down.
