This plucked instrument has a powerful and bright sound enhanced by the fish leather of which its soundboard is made of.
This banjolele design is inspired from mountain banjo, a special type of banjo, and it is built in two pieces, with a neckthrough body.
Strengths of banjo ukulele:
light mass and sweet sound of banjolele makes this musical instrument special and unique in its musical instruments category.
Paolo Bianchi chooses to construct the Banjo ukulele the subject of its promotional campaign, because of its main characteristics:
