Bruno Banjo Ukulele

  • Excellent Condition
  • Year: circa 1900s
  • Includes Original Soft Shell Case


This lovely Banjo Ukulele is a great example of an early hybrid between the Banjo and the Ukulele, with this specific banjo being the earliest example of a Banjo Ukulele we have ever seen! The nickel spun-over rim is reminiscent of banjos from the turn of the century. The headstock is very similar to headstocks present on early Dobson banjos from the 1860s and 70s. The tag on the dowel stick reads "C. Bruno & Son, NY". The tailpiece is an Original "Bell Brand" tailpiece. It has a lovely sound and plays very nicely! The intonation is great and the action is perfect for a Banjo Ukulele. The friction pegs hold their tune well with nylon strings. The calfskin head has no tears or defects and was adjusted by our staff.
