Combining everything that players love about the ukulele with the crisp sound of a banjo, the Recording King banjo ukulele (or banjolele) is a unique instrument that you'll love.

            Comments about Recording King U25 Banjolele:

            Banjolele is very cool looking. I gasped when I took it out of the box. The bridge is a loose piece of wood that you slide under the strings. This was unexpected and makes it very hard to tune the instrument. I looked up tuners online and could match the tone for accurate tuning. After only a few strums it would fall right back out of tune. No instructions included or available online on proper care or use either; so I don't even know of I'm doing something wrong. The sound does not resonate and the strings dampen very quickly. Almost gives off a cringing buzz when the strings vibrate.

              Comments about Recording King U25 Banjolele:

              I bought this for my 13 year old son for Christmas. He was really wanting a banjolele. The very day he got it, he learned some chords using an instruction book, and within a day, he wrote a song and was playing well! He has no prior string experience (he plays piano). This product arrived extremely well packaged and it is clearly a good-quality, professional product - well worth the money. My son taught his older brother and my husband to play his song, and now my husband says he wants a ukulele! This little instrument is a ton of fun and really easy to pick up. My son has had it now for nearly three weeks, he's learned many songs (thanks, Youtube), and shows no signs of getting bored. Highly recommended!!

              Comments about Recording King U25 Banjolele:

              I was impressed when I unpacked the box. I had never heard of Recording King, but this is a well made instrument for the price. It has good tone and holds its tuning well. The only thing I didn't like was the nylon strings. I am used to playing steel strings and just can't get used to the nylon sound. Other than that I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the nylon strings.
