    Fun little banjo & a true value. Charley Simmons Professional Musician.

    5/5 Charles Simmons - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Oscar Schmidt OUB1 Ukulele - Satin (Electronics) I've had the OUB1 for two weeks now & am delighted with the quality & playability. It took very little setup & sounds great. Some people seemconfused about bridge location. The distance from the nut to the 12th fret &12th fret to the bridge should be the same. Measure from edge of nutto center of 12th fret to edge of bridge. Minor adjustments can be made if necc. This is true of any banjo. I've played it with our ukulele group &it stands out when doing a lead. Concert size is nice. I like it better than most banjo ukes I've played that cost twice as much.I think it's a real value.

    Confused and defected?

    3/5 John Gomez (San Francisco) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Luna Ulu 8-Inch Concert Banjolele (Electronics) I'm am by far not a professional ukulele player nor musician, but I do enjoy playing. I have watched videos regarding banjoleles, but seem to be struggling finding a good sound from this particular uke. It seems to my untrained eye that the strings sit lower on the fretboard towards the bottom ( see pic). Also it seems like the metal tube inside is veering off at a slight downward angle which causes it to be uneven. Maybe I have a defective uku...I have tried playing some of my limited tunes and it does not sound at all clear how I've envisioned my purchase to sound.

    Luna 8 inch Concert Banjolele

    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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2014
