The Freshman Banjolele provides the perfect synergy of two beloved folk instruments. With playing characteristics and tuning exactly the same as a concert-sized ukulele, but sound characteristics best described as mini banjo-esque, the banjolele is perfect for the ukulele player looking to produce an altogether different sound.

The Freshman Banjolele is a diminutive instrument with volume which belies its size. Noticeably louder than a standard ukulele, and with a sound quality of its own, you will find yourself playing new tunes and pushing the boundaries of your repertoire as you play it. While a standard ukulele evokes island imagery, the banjolele occupies more country or folk territory.
The Freshman Banjolele is very well built, as we have come to expect from Freshman's Ukuleles in general. With a Remo head, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck and black walnut fretboard, the materials used are all pleasingly high quality. Chrome geared die cast tuning machines ensure it stays perfectly in tune. As an added bonus it comes supplied with a padded gig bag.
