Banjo Uke Ukulele Banjolele with Padding Bag
Sold By: Hathart
The banjo ukulele is a four-stringed musical instrument that is one part ukulele and one part banjo. It was introduced in the early 1900s when ukuleles were becoming a popular instrument in movies and vaudeville. A ukulele is generally a soft-sounding instrument, while a banjo ukulele is quite loud, as they could be heard better over a feisty audience back when the sound had little to no amplification. Banjo ukuleles are played and tuned like a ukulele, but share the tone and look of a banjo.
