The Banjolele(also know as the Banjo ukulele or Banjo uke) has actually been around since 1917! Why are they so hard to find and buy in Australia?
We can confirm there aren't many companies around the world with the skills to make Banjo ukuleles. It has taken us over 18 months to find a quality supplier of these instruments. Finally they have arrived! Take a listen to the soundbite below and you'll get an idea of the quality.

Setting Up This Banjolele
This Banjo ukulele requires the bridge to be setup. The bridge does not come installed because the remo skin can be damaged during shipping. It's a floating bridge which you will need to install. Its quite simple to learn and a good skill to have as a musician.
You can follow the guys in the video below as they teach you how to install a bridge on a banjo. The process is exactly the same on your banjolele. The video is very detailed, the fellas explain everything in detail. Its an entertaining watch and well worth your time.
