    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?)

    Goldtone Banjolele DLX

    I purchased this Banjolele DLX based on a sentence in Goldtone's site which says "It's design incorporates an arched top which lends itself to the playing style of George Formby". More about George below. The set-up upon receipt was EXCELLENT either done by Goldtone, the distributor or the retailer. Head was properly tensioned, string height was perfect, bridge in proper position, and neck angle was correct. The physical condition was also excellent in that there were no scratches, chips, dings, etc. One of the few of my many instruments that could be taken right out of the case and played and enjoyed without tearing it apart.Some other reviews indicated the tuners would slip and the banjolele could not be kept in tune. This referred to an older design when Goldtone used vintage 'friction' type tuners. These have now been replaced with geared tuners so this is not a problem anymore. Some web retailers are still using an older picture of the Banjolele which shows the old... 5/5 BanjoGuy - See all my reviews This review is from: Gold Tone Banjolele-DLX Banjo Ukulele Deluxe (Maple) (Electronics) I purchased this Banjolele DLX based on a sentence in Goldtone's site which says "It's design incorporates an arched top which lends itself to the playing style of George Formby".

    0 5/5 Gail - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Luna Ulu 8-Inch Concert Banjolele (Electronics) This is a very nice Ukulele. 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2014

    0 4/5 Vicky - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gold Tone Banjolele Banjo Ukulele (Maple) (Electronics) I love the shape!, It is very heavy though, so you can't walk around with it...I guess you can, but my arm felt like it was going to fall off! Sounds like a cross between a banjo and uke - more on the banjo side. It's great for playing the deliverance song! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 29, 2012
