I'm impressed with the quality of the build. I have looked at many other similar Banjoleles in music stores that were twice the price or more. This little gem is awesome. It held tuning right away which surprised me. It is quite loud and unless your audiance sees that it is Ukulele sized they would never know the difference.
This banjolele met all my criteria for quality, workmanship and playability. I currently have 6 ukes and have always wanted a banjolele to add to my collection but the prices were way out of line. This banjolele was very reasonably priced and was skeptical on quality but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. A great uke for the price. Quality of product is very nice and have no complaints about sharp frets or edges and no blemishes during the finish process. Other then the usual stretching of new strings for a couple days, it now holds its tuning very well and mantains it normally. Overall, I was very pleased with the product. The picks that come with this unit are for guitar and since I do not use picks to play anyways, it was not of any concern. The strap is decent and if I decide to use it, it will easily attach. The tuner works perfect and always handy to have extra tuners. All accessories came as promised and it was packed quite well for shipping. No real complaints as it has been a fun instrument to play with the fun twang of a banjo.
I'm not a great ukulele player by any means nor am I an instrument officianato... that being said, I really like this little banjo ukulele for my level of playing and the price. It was easy to set up in it's basic form and is easy to play. After reading a few of the previous comments and looking about on YouTube I learned how to set up the intonation so that the instrument stays in tune well... not a difficult task, but a little fiddly. Play it for a while to stretch out the strings before you do fine tuning. I am very pleased with my purchase.
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!
Incredibly easy to install bridge ( if I can do it anyone can) just loosen strings and stand up bridge where indicated. Great tone, solid feeling and everything I could want in a beginners banjo uke for a great price.
This is a great buy for anyone wanting to learn the banjolele. Comes with everything you need to get started. The picks it comes with are for guitar so if your wanting finger picks you’ll have to order them separately. Though their not really needed to learn how to play.
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
