Greetings from NL to NZL

I am very pleased with the Duke 10. Easy to play and sounds the way I like it. A good mix between banjo and ukulele and sounds good too with clawhammer style. Thank you also for the fast delivery (it took only 12 days to the Netherlands).

A very nice banjo uke.

Quick delivery. The Duke 10 plays very well, love the sound.
The pick up works fine. If you play it over a PA the Duke 10 sound great. Very natural.
I play in a band and it's nice to have a new sound on it.

A close 5

I love this Duke 10 Banjo - Ukulele....the set up is great and it plays very well. The tenor neck gives more room for my fingers. The only limitation is my ability, I have not played a Banjo Ukulele before but I can see the possibilities. We are part of a ukulele group 'Rukes' consisting of a Uke-bass, Duke 10 and about 10 Ukes, we play and sing anything - folk, country, Church, and popular songs of the last 60 years. I have started using the Duke 10 as a lead instrument picking out the tune, mostly within the strum, using a soft flat pick. The greater volume enables me to be heard above the other ukuleles. I am still developing this technique but am very pleased with the way it is going.

Hi Pat - thanks so much for your 5 Star Review! We appreciate that it was carefully considered, and thanks for the pic! All the best, Jamie Houston - Owner.
Christmas Duke arives in time

Big thanks to Jamie at Duke Banjo Ukuleles,
My wife, who obviously got the big hint for my Christmas gift ordered the Duke 10 and was advised that they only stood a slim chance of getting it to me in time but would pull out all stops to get it delivered to Perth Western Australia. And they did, it arrived on the 24th December whilst I was out but was received by my wife and whisked away before I had chance to notice. A wonderful surprise that was backed up with supper service from Jamie who did his utmost to get it to delivered. I already have 3 other Banjoleles but the Duke 10 is so beautifully set up its an absolute pleasure to play. If I could give it a 10 star rating I would, its wonderful instrument. Thanks again Jamie and by the way, the bag turned up a week or so later as promised.
