The banjolele (also known as the Banjo uke) , as the name implies, is an instrument with the body of a banjo and the neck of a ukulele. It is played like a ukulele, as the tuning is the same, but sounds like a banjo. Modern Banjolele heads are made from synthetic materials. Traditionally they were made from calf skin, a more expensive option, but getter sounding according to traditionalists.
