    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.

    Great birthday present

    5/5 Jackie Schutz - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) My husband bought this for my birthday. He let me pick the banjole I wanted. The reviews were very helpful in picking this instrument. The strings are still stretching and it needs re-tuning often, but it sounds great and I was able to play within a few minutes after taking it out of the box! We took the back plate off of it. I've played it without a hand towel in the pan and with one as recommended by my more experienced banjo friends. It is so much fun!

    Bad buzz

    3/5 Jeremy Jensen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala KA-BJN-BKC Concert Banjo Ukulele (Electronics) Bad buzzing on the e-string by the bridge. Other strings are fine. Adjusting bridge, tail piece and drum tension made no difference. For $300 you' d expect it to work without having to pay a luthier to make it playable.**Amendment: after a trip to the luthier who fixed the buzz and lowered the nut--every fretted note was bent because the nut was so high--it's been great. Great sound, easy playability, beautiful instrumnet. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 24, 2016
