    Okay, but may not be worth it

    While I consider myself a beginner, I have several years of banjo experience but only around 8 months of ukulele playing (still pretty new with the uke). It happened that about 2 weeks after I got my uke, I stumbled upon the amazing and oh-so-very-intriguing banjolele. I have been saving up and finally decided to purchase the OUB1 Oscar Schmidt as my first banjolele.I had seen some positive reviews, and some negative ones about this particular banjolele, but had heard some good praise for the OS ukuleles, so I decided to give it a try. It was quite a bit of money for a student like me, but was still under the $200 mark which made it very attractive. While it is okay, I wouldn't really recommend this banjolele at the price. Now don’t get me wrong, it is a fun little instrument, there are however a few things that I will have to see about adjusting in hopes of cleaning her up a bit.The banjolele came quickly and incredibly well packaged.

    0 3/5 veteran38 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Oscar Schmidt OUB1 Ukulele - Satin (Electronics) The finish and assembling is not up to par (made in China) for an Oscar Schmidt Ukulele, if I had paid retail it would have been returned. However, the sound is what I expected, today is the first day I played it as I have been tuning it frequently since yesterday, it seems to be holding tune better today. Our Uke group bought two of these it will be interesting to find out how the two Ukes compare. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 25, 2012

    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

    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

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.
