Comments about Gold Tone BUS Soprano Banjo Ukulele:

This is a nice soprano scale banjo ukulele with closed back. I've own a Goldtone concert sized banjo ukulele deluxe model and I actually think I like this one better because I like the smaller scale and its a little lighter; I have to use a strap for the deluxe model... I can play standing up without a strap on this instrument. Frets are nice and smooth and the wood is beautiful. It comes with a quality hard shell case that will keep it looking like new for years to come.
Its not really a complaint, because it's very often the case with a new instrument, but swap out the strings for a nice set of Martins and it will sound even better.


We received the banjolele quickly, well packaged and in tune

Comments about Gold Tone BUS Soprano Banjo Ukulele:

We are in a banjolele band of about 14 players and 1 bass player. Can't have much more fun than that! I bought this one for my husband as he had an old 70+ year old one that just wouldn't hold true (tune/tone). This is the 2nd Gold Tone in the family and we are very pleased!
