To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great banjolele. Looks and plays great, sound is powerful. Needed to be tuned often until the strings settled, which is normal, and playing often, took about 1 week. Surprised at the accuracy of the tuner that I tested with my more expensive one. Unfortunately, I regret putting on the pick up that changes the sound, lots of echo, and with the amp, sounds like my electric guitar. The pick up is really stuck to the drum head, hoping it will unstick with time. I also have the Kmise uke, love it.
The Banjo Uke arrived with all parts as advertised. It has a very nice appearance and it was easy to install the bridge (especially with the plastic bridge ruler provided for proper placement). Having a strap is a bonus if you need to play standing. Very nice sound and the strings are holding the notes after a couple of tunings. Only negative is that the frets are a little rough at the edges and might benefit from a bit of filing to round the rough edges. If it becomes a problem I can take care of that myself. All in all....no complaints for the price! I am having a lot of fun with this instrument!
Banjolele feels super solid, good weight and drum seems like great quality. I'm not sure the strings are the best, but I imagine those can be changed. I bought it as a gift for a friend who is eager to learn an instrument and she was super happy with it. I love that it came with a bag and a tuner. Def happy with the purchase. It was delivered in less than 24 hours with prime one day shipping. Gotta love Amazon! Happy playing
Quick shipping, Item arrived May 24th though initially expected between June 5th and June 26th, 2017. Well packed, with bridge down to protect the head. Gig bag better than expected, with decent protective padding, handle and adjustable shoulder strap. Banjolele built quality and aesthetics better than expected as well. Tuning has low gears for precise adjustments. Quality "Nil--Gut" Aquila strings. Actually adjustable action if you open the pot. Comes with a decent tuner. I gave only 4 out of 5 stars because a banjo strap was supposed to be included in the items described, which I did not at this time receive. All in all a very good bang for the buck.
I took a chance and ordered this instrument a year ago. It is well made and sounds great, which is good for the price point. 1 year later and I still love it and often take it along when I travel! It stays in tune fairly well, comes with decent strings, nice tuning heads. The Back is removable if you prefer an open back. When it ships, just set the floating bridge and tune and your ready to go. My only annoyance, which is why it doesn't get 5 stars, is that I never received the bag and tuner. I sent kmise a complaint and they apologised and said they would ship them immediately...Its been a year, still no tuner or bag. Annoying because I paid extra for the kit but its not the end of the world.The instrument is good, extremely fun and I play it like it owes me money lol. Just buy one
