While it isn't known who first conceived the idea of a banjo ukulele,but we all know The banjo-ukulele is a four-stringed musical instrument with a small banjo-type body and a fretted ukulele neck,a mix between a Ukulele and a Banjo.
The instrument achieved its greatest popularity in the 1920s and 1930s, and combines the small scale, tuning, and playing style of a ukulele with the construction and distinctive tone of a banjo, hence the name.Its development was pushed by the need for vaudeville performers to have an instrument that could be played with the ease of the ukulele, but with more volume,designed it for those ukulele players who want more of that sweet ukulele tone blended with the pop and snap of the banjo.
Tightening or loosening the drum head, through adjusting the tension hooks fitted around the outside of the drum results in a change in tone.
The head typically has a firm tension. Tightening it so that it is rock hard to the touch gives a bright sound with good note distinction, but less bass response. Loosening it so it is softer, yet still tight enough to keep the bridge in place with the tension of the strings, results in a warmer, less bright sound.The bridge floats on the head and is held in place by the tension of the strings.

I'm not a uke player so I also bought the book Ukulele for the Complete Ignoramus to get me started. Learning to play can be intimidating & I appreciated the way the author made to process easy & fun. In half an hour, I had learned three chords and was strumming along and even picking out the melody to Take Me Out To The Ballgame using the "tabs." If you are new to the uke, this book is a good investment.
I added a strap to hold the instrument in place as it is heavier than a regular uke.
Perhaps the best part of all is how nice it sounds. Using a pick, it sounds like a banjo and can be played good & loud. Using your fingers, it has a softer tone, more like a uke. I love it!
Its nice to be able to say something good about a product. You can't go wrong with this banjo uke or the book, they are both worth the money.
As with many products now, there is no printed instructions. The info about setting up the bridge was printed on the clear plast template and that was good enough. It ain't rocket science!
After digging around and trying to find the model that I received, I found it available on wish.com for dirt cheap... so yeah, make sure that you’re getting what you paid for.
I hate having to leave a one star review, as I’m sure the Ukulele itself is fantastic quality - just make sure that you’re getting on what you actually ordered!
