Combining quality ukulele craftsmanship with a banjo body, the Banjolele Deluxe achieves more volume while keeping that distinctive uke sound. This closed-back model is an affordable alternative for uke players desiring loud volume and the banjo uke tone. With its 8 rim and tone ring, this model projects very well ideal for solo and group performing. A one-piece flange and resonator creates excellent volume and tone and is a great alternative instrument for uke players as it produces superior volume to its openback predecessor. The newly added geared tuners are a significant upgrade to the vintage-style friction pegs and provide smooth tuning ratio. This model, along with its vintage appeal, is perfect for the uke player searing for a unique sound.
