Martinez Banjo

Martinez Southern Belle banjoleles are a true blast from the past!
Before electronic amplification was available, performers had to rely on construction methods that improved the volume and projection of their instrument – 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.

What is the difference between a banjo and a ukulele?

Is it just size or what’s inside that counts when determining if an instrument is one thing or another? One might think so, but not always. A Ukulele looks like your average guitar with strings stretched across its body, while Banjos are usually bigger in nature and have longer strings. But there isn’t much to differentiate these two instruments because some musicians use hybrid versions of them both! “Banjo ukuleles” combine elements from each as best they can: small enough for easy transportability yet still able to produce deep resonating sounds you’d expect out of the larger models… So then does this mean anything at all about how their sound differs based
