Popularized in the roaring '20s and '30s, the banjolele answered the call from popular performers for greater volume. From there the unique banjolele tone solidified itself into the lexicon of ukulele and banjo music and is well-loved for its distinct sound.
This Lanikai banjolele features aged brass hardware, a flamed maple resonator, maple neck with flamed maple headstock overlay, maple tone ring, no-knot tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, flamed maple body and neck binding, and a Remo Banjolele head. The LBU-C Lanikai banjolele comes with a custom-fitted banjolele gig bag.
The banjolele is strung with Aquila Nylgut Strings.

I purchased this as a gift for someone who can play the guitar/piano/uke/theramin. This is a handsome instrument - even more so than the picture - well-constructed with a nice weight to it. You can tune it to give the instrument different sounds/soul. The musician who received it seems to prefer a "dirty" sound. Regarding tuning... it takes a little patience - alternately adjusting the strings and bridge - and you may not get each string exactly right but that's the nature and fun of the instrument. If you're someone who can play a uke and looking for a dirty banjo sound, this is the instrument for you.
this is a fun instrument. not much to be said about it. Nice sound, great action, and not too shaby on the price. If you wanna add a unique sound to your music this works perfectly
