    Welcome Ronda!

    Keeping a banjouke can sometimes be a challenge to keep in tune. Check the tightness of the head. The position of the bridge on the head. And your strings. (New strings take a while to settle in.) There are lots of videos about the care and feeding of banjos and banjoukes on YouTube. I have tenor Southern Cross and Deering Goodtime banjo ukes.

    Oh, I also have a solid Fred Shields Backpacker concert uke. They are compact, light and sound great. So keep them in mind if you don't want to go the plastic uke route to take with you camping.

    Have fun!

    Thank you for all the welcomes. I recently purchased a Concert size Amahi Banjo Ukulele. I played it at the closest music store here. Then all this mess with corona virus I couldn't go back and purchase until the Gov said they could open. So after 4 months of wishing and waiting, it's now in my music room. The closest music store is 150 miles a way. So, now I'm just letting it settle in.
