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.
The maple neck and maple rim give it a bright tone with great projection, and the coordinator rod and 10 brackets are a nod to classic banjo-style construction.
With nickel hardware, nylon strings, a 6-1/4" frosted banjo head and comely satin finish, you'll appreciate the attention to detail on this uncommon instrument.
For players looking for something unique, the Madison Banjo Ukulele offers the size and playability of a traditional ukulele with classic banjo design elements. With bright tone and great projection, this instrument is every bit as fun as it looks.
About Recording King:
Beginning as a house brand in the 1930's for Montgomery Ward, Recording King acoustic guitars and banjos were developed during the Golden Age of musical craftsmanship, a period that resulted in some of the most well-respected and sought-after fretted acoustic instruments available. Building on this piece of American history, our Recording King instruments uphold the name's historic legacy using vintage designs and hand-assembled parts. Our instruments have the look, feel and sound of the classic models with impeccable workmanship and enhancements for contemporary players. All Recording King models are made for the long-term - you can hand a Recording King instrument down from generation to generation. This is what we strive for in each handmade model.
