The sound of the banjolele is instantly recognisable in the songs ‘Bring Back That Leroy Brown’ by Queen and ‘Any Road’ by George Harrison. This particular banjolele, the Kala KA-BNJ-BK-C closed-back concert banjo ukulele, has a maple shell. It was originally designed by Alvin Keech in 1917 was used regularly by actor and singer/songwriter George Formby. This concert variety featuring a black satin-gloss finish is a surprising combination of instruments that any adventurous string-plucker is sure to appreciate!

This Kala offers concert uke or banjo players a whole new perspective by combining two string instruments this way. What's more, the neck is made of maple and has a rosewood fretboard. On the 8-inch, rough Remo Weatherking top, held in place by 12 lugs, you'll find a maple bridge with an ebony saddle. The Kala banjolele has a concert scale length of 14.75 inches and 18 frets, and comes complete with nylon concert ukulele strings and a matching gig bag.
