Magic Fluke M80 Firefly Soprano Banjolele Banjo Ukulele (RRP £229)
Magic Fluke M80 Firefly Soprano Banjolele Banjo Ukulele
The Firefly Banjo Ukulele combines the ease of playing the uke with the distinctive sound of the banjolele. The 8” head is synthetic Mylar-based Remo Fiberskyn with Acousticon pot, factory tuned and assembled. The simple open back design is lightweight, requiring no tuning of the head. Action is easily adjustable with shim washers where the dowel stick meets the tailpiece bracket. The Firefly Banjo Ukulele, comes standard with: Grover 2B tuners, walnut neck, walnut body, maple and ebony bridge, wooden fretboard, and D'Addario Nyltech strings.
This model, the M80 has 16 frets to the body, and a 355mm scale length, which makes it a soprano scale. It is extremely light, so very easy to hold and play, easily half to a third of the weight of other banjo ukuleles. But there is no compromise on volume or tone - this is a very loud and proud instrument!
