    Default WANT TO BUY BANJO UKULELE BANJOLELE Deering, Fluke, Duke, etc.

    WANT TO BUY Looking for quality built Banjolele. Will consider other brands that are considered to be top quality.
    I think I would like a Tenor but will consider the right Concert


    1. Deering Good Time

    2. Duke 10

    3. Magic Fluke Firefly Tenor

    I have a Zach Hoyt 10" baritone. I love it. The Deering is big and loud and well made.
    The magic Fluke has an 8" pot and not as loud...order the
    Peghead geared tuners.
    The Duke is ok but lacks the adjustability in the head. The geared tuners are rough. I'd probably take the Goldtone BUT over the Duke. Head tension is critical with banjos and Deering and Magic Fluke are best there.

    I have a Gold Tone concert, and it's more than adequate.
    The Fluke is one of the best sounding banjoukes I've ever played.

    The fluke is ok but depending on what you want. If you want more banjo like qualities you need something you can adjust the head on. I really like the Deering. It’s a great value.

    I have the Deering Concert and get along well with it. It tends to be the Top Dog for sound and tone to my ear. You do need to be aware it is loud when playing with others or you will over whelm the ukuleles.

    I have a Deering Goodtime 12" pot tenor. It stands tall amongst banjoleles. A loud and bold voice. If that is what you seek, then look no further.

    Mim set mine up and did a great job.

    I have a GoldTone concert for sale - $175 shipped. It cost $300 from Mim last fall, I think it's up to $400 now. My right hand is too messed up to play now.
