I know, but I wasn't sure how to say "a medium-silly instrument" without it sounding awkward...:o

This is why polling data is suspect.

Didn't know it needed a vote! Don't tell me there's controversy here! It is funny, though, that two misunderstood instruments got morphed into one way back when. Was it Mark Twain who said, "A gentleman is someone who knows how to play banjo, but doesn't." ? He'd probably say the same thing about the banjolele... {except to a smaller degree... ;}

I prefer the term 'banjo uke', and I love the instrument. There are no silly instruments, but quite a few silly musicians. Fact is, I'm one of them. That's why I play the stuff I play. If I weren't so silly, I'd join the band of some even sillier pop star and make millions.

Hey, Stan,

My Wizard is still for sale. I would ship free to you as well. Great and beautiful instrument. I need to clear some space for arriving Ponos (hopefully, soon)

Did you know that 67% of all stats are made up on the spot?

I bought one a couple of weeks ago, and just couldn't get on with it, so it went back today, to be replaced by one of those chrome and nickle resonater ukes, if I don't get on with it, it'll make a nice shiney ornament.

Whoa! And I was worrying about if I should buy a second one! LOL! But my little Lanakai is so new here, I wouldn't want to neglect her. I should wait (I keep telling myself).

Statistics are like a girl in a bikini
Often revealing but at the same time hiding the essentials.

Not at all silly!

"Historical, not at all Hysterical".

"All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth", NOT! "All I want for Christmas is a 'Wendell Hall Professional Banjo Ukulele'". (Okay, possibly a extra vellum head and nuts and fruit and candy too!)

It is a silly instrument.

I only have two.

I have Four tenor-sized ukuleles, two soprano, 3 concert, and two 2 banjo ukes.

At the moment, the silliest instrument is my Slide Whistle.

i ain't voting, i think they are great, so great in fact i am going to attempt to make one in the new year (totally inspired by sirants you tube banjo from a few years ago) i have bought the hand drum, so if anyone on here has a damaged soprano or concert uke looking for a good home send it to me i will pay the P+P and send you a box of chocolates, preferably the brit contingent though, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new makala than to get one sent over from the good ole US of A

I voted! Now I want my I voted sticker! I grew up around 5 string banjo, and love it. Can't stand tenor banjo, though. 1st time I saw a banjolele being played, I fell in love with the silly thing. Now I want one (just one?)
Sam Ash just got a Lanakai... hmmm. Do I buy it or pay the bills? JK...
