Private Collection - Talina BJU8 - Folk Banjo uke using 8" Remo hand drum pot.
During the 20+ years that the UkuleleWorld.Com shop was open, I hand-built well over 200 folk banjo ukuleles using Remo 8" Hand Drums for the pot of the instrument. This instrument is one of the last that were built.
These were not factory production instruments, but each was hand-crafted. Many are still in use and the Remo head never loostens with age.
This instrument has gold-plated Grover geared tuning machines.
This instrument BJU8 was selected for my private collection as it represented the better of the Banjo Ukuleles that I made. My wife and I delighted in playing with this group.
During those almost 20 years that we played with the senior adult ukulele band, The Stars and Stripes, changed until all 30 members were playing my Talina Banjo Ukes
Banjo Ukuleles are loud voiced so the band really sounded great in its hay-day.
