Martinez banjoleles are a true blast from the past!
Before electronic amplification was available, performers had to rely on construction methods that improved their instruments volume and projection – and so the “banjolele” was born, combining the volume of the banjo with the sound and playability of a ukulele.
Martinez banjoleles offer distinctive percussive tone and old time charm, perfect for those who favour an instrument with a unique voice.
