    Nice banjolele. Much better sound than any of the modern brands.

    Welcome OneToughQuaker!

    I have never heard a banjolele (or a banjo) live, only on recordings and Youtube. I am not really a fan of how they sound. Maybe I just don't know what style of music and playing I would try out on one myself.
    So, looking forward to learning about the instrument and its possibilities.

    Congrats! Old banjoukes are very cool. They have a tone that can't be mimicked by new ones.
    There are two banjouke groups here you might enjoy.

    No doubt you'll have a lot of fun with that! I've got a similar banjo uke of the same vintage. Welcome and God bless!
