Banjolele: It’s a Banjo and a Ukulele!
Is it a banjo? Is it a ukulele? Yes and yes! The Kala Mahogany Concert Banjo Ukulele combines the distinct features of both banjos and ukuleles for an instrument that has both mountain twang and ukulele playability. This banjolele features a solid mahogany shell and authentic Remo resonator head for tone and sustain that sounds as good as it looks. With a comfortable concert-size body, a 15-inch fingerboard, and a modest overall length of 24.25 inches, the Kala Mahogany Concert Banjo Ukulele is perfect for festivals, gigs, road trips, or as a colorful addition to your collection.
Hybrid design dates back a century
Kala banjoleles perfectly combine banjo tone and features with the compact playable size of a ukulele. Patterned on classic popular banjolele designs dating back to pre-World War II, the Kala Mahogany Concert Banjo Ukulele features a 4-string setup with standard ukulele tuning straight from the box. From there, this Kala instrument ferries inland toward hill country where it picks up classic banjo parts for a warm twang that’s one of a kind.
Versatile, dreamy twang
The Mahogany Concert Banjo Ukulele features a stunningly Remo resonator head from one of the most renowned banjo brands in the world. Atop the Remo resonator, you'll find a floating banjo bridge that adds more treble and pop, especially when picking or strumming closer to the bridge. Playing in this zone yields a more banjo-esque attack, while strumming up toward the neck yields warmer ukulele-style projection with a more subtle twang.
Solid mahogany shell
When it comes to building acoustic instruments with incredible warmth and sustain, mahogany reigns supreme. An authentic wood shell is a vital part of any resonator instrument, and the Kala Mahogany Concert Banjo Ukulele's mahogany shell doesn’t disappoint. Banjo and ukulele fans are especially impressed with the Kala banjolele’s strong projection — it outperforms your standard ukulele with an outsized voice for such a portable instrument.
From Kala: the uke company
Kala is all about ukulele. In fact, ukes are all they make, and they make them exceedingly well. Kala is in no small part responsible for the strong resurgence of interest in ukuleles since the mid-1990s. They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods, including lacewood, koa, mango, and many more, with each imparting its own sonic signature and aesthetic beauty to these popular and iconic instruments.
