The banjo uke (banjolele) was a favorite with the vo-doh-dee-oh collegiate crowd of the 1920s and 1930s. It was tuned like a regular uke, with uke strings, but with the ringing volume of a standard banjo.



This banjolele is of wooden construction (may be maple) with a skin head. It has a solid back. The tuners look like celluloid. The fret markers are mother of pearl. My instrument dates to the ‘20s or ‘30s and is in good playing condition. I purchased it from a music store (Music Folk in Webster Groves, Missouri) in 2001 and never got around to playing it. Now I have other instruments to play, and it is time to get it out of my closet.



Sorry, there is no case.

Added 10/7:  I was asked about the condition of the tuners, and whether there were any repairs. The tuners are smooth and stable; they don't stick when you turn them, and they don't slip under string tension. There are no cracks, splits, or warping, just some minor scuffs that I've tried to make apparent in the photos. There are no visible repairs. The bridge is probably not original (as you'd expect on a stringed instrument of this vintage). The instrument was never played much at all in my household--it has spent the past seven years carefully wrapped up--but it was played enough to determine that it works fine and has a good big sound.
