About this Banjo
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.

Bonuses When You Order From Banjo.com
- 5th String Railroad Spike Capos – FREE
We can add these as a free service when you purchase a banjo from us. When you add this banjo to your cart just select that you want the capos. What is this? When you use a standard capo on your banjo fretboard, fretting strings 1 through 4, you’ll need to capo the 5th string separately. The 5th string starts at the 5th fret. If your standard capo is on the 2nd fret, you also need to capo the 5th string two frets higher, at the 7th fret. We recommend installing railroad spike capos on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). We install them on the fretboard just under the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you’re playing, you don’t really notice the spikes because they’re out of the way, but they’re always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you’re done, slide it out.
