Why WAIZ Banjo Ukuelele?
Waiz Banjo Ukulele is a four stringed plucked instrument
This plucked instrument has an extremely powerful and bright sound given by the fish leather of which its soundboard is made of.
The Banjolele model I’ve designed is inspired by the mountain banjo, thus a special type of banjo, and it is built in two pieces, with a neckthrough body.
The strengths of banjo ukulele:
the lightness and the sweet sound of this banjolele makes this musical plucked instrument special and unique in this category.
Paolo Bianchi decided to make Banjo Ukulele the protagonist of WAIZ Kickstarter campaign, because of its main characteristics:
- POWERFUL SOUND: the Waiz Banjo Ukulele’s sound is loud, more than the usual ukulele. However, it mantains its tipical sweet sound, especially if it is played with fingertips.
- STRENGTH: Waiz Banjo Ukulele is a very strong musical instrument. It is built in two 18 mm thick chunks of spanish cedar, which is a very stable type of wood, and in a fish leather soundboard, which provides resistance.
- UNIQUE DESIGN: the aesthetic of the Waiz Banjo Ukulele is unique and simple, aiming at having a light and comfortable instrument.
QUALITY: precision and accuracy are on of the main drivers in creating each instrument.
Paolo Bianchi selects the best materials at my disposal.
ECONOMIC PRICE: Paolo Bianchi becomes efficient in making Waiz Banjo Ukuleles.
Hence, the luthier is able to keep low price, making each instrument more affordable.
