    Default Banjo Ukuleles

    Hey All,

    I'm looking for input to help me build a list of options for my next uke. I'm after a tenor banjo uke. I've been following Aaron Keim's beansprouts for some time, but as I'm getting closer, I thought I'd look around and see who else is building these. Here's what I've got so far.....feel free to add to it.

    The Deering Banjo ukulele's are well built in the USA. They offer a tenor as well as a Concert size. Large heads, banjo sound, excellent quality. Worthy of consideration.
    Pono AS Soprano, Kaloha Long Neck Soprano
    Pono RC (C) PC Concert, Kala KA-ACP-CTG Concert (Low G), Sawchyn Concert, Kala Elite IMHG-C, Romero Creations ST Concert, Blackbird Clara
    Kala K-BE Baritone. Recording King Resonator, Stuart Wailing Resonator
    Godin Multiuke Tenor,
    Goodtime Concert Ukulele Banjo
    Outdoor Carbon Tenor
    Kona Walking Bass

    Life is good, but better with a uke.

    Thanks for the shout for spanky ukes, steve-o-reno.

    I've looked into the Deering ukes, I think they have a lot going for them, including a very reasonable price point for a USA built instrument, but I understand that the tenor size has been discontinued.

    I've spent some time on the Romero website. Really cool instruments, but pricy! And the wait......five years, IF you can get on their list. It's only open one day a year and then it's a lottery.

    If you're looking for a tenor banjo uke, be sure to check out the Magic Fluke Firefly. Very lightweight, and super comfortable to play. Sounds good too!

    My wife bought me an Eddy Finn Resonantor Banjolele.
    I heard it played at People’s Music in Petaluma. I was ready to buy it from them, next time I was in the area, but they were out and wouldn’t get another one for 6 months or so.
    So my sweetie found one in line. Heavy sucker, but I really like the tone. And it is LOUD.
    Can have the back removed and played standard.

    For the money, that's the best sounding banjouke I ever played. Light as a feather, too.
