  • Magic Fluke "Firefly" Soprano Banjolele w/ Pickup (Premium Package)

    Availability: In stock



    The premium package is basically how we've been custom ordering most models this way now because it really showcases the quality you can achieve with The Magic Fluke Co.'s amazing designs. The wood fretboard and real frets are a must for us. We have to have frets to do a real setup and guarantee the service we include with each uke. It also just feels and sounds better in my opinion, though all Fluke instruments sound great. And the other upgrade we feel is essential because accurately tuning and holding tune is essential, is the Peghed tuners, which are a 4:1 gear ratio for finer tuning and gear locked to hold. The package also includes the Deluxe gig bag custom made also in America, but by TKL. Thickly padded with shoulder strap, handle, pocket and zipper enclosure. In black water resistant nylon. That's what we call the premium package.

    This is the Firefly banjo uke from Magic Fluke. Soprano size with a tenor volume! These models have the upgraded wood fretboard, versus the regular synthetic one and it is quite nice. This is the walnut version and looks great! It also comes with Open Source Sensors internal pickup so it's ready to plug in and play for live performance or recording.

    These may, to some, seem pricey, given the simple design. But they are made in the US with US-made parts. They are less shiny than the normal banjolele but the sound is so classic with the sticatto punchy attack. They are light in weight, easy to play, and at this price, take the cake in tone. 

    We are including the Fluke padded gig bag. We will also be setting up the bridge and taping off for you with instructions and making sure it plays it's absolute best and has no flaws. This is how we do our job for you and we hope you can take advantage of what we offer as a free service.  

    Additional Information

    The 8” head is synthetic Mylar-based Remo Renaissance with Acousticon pot, factory tuned and assembled.

    The simple open back design is lightweight and requires no tuning.

    The action is adjustable thru the removal or addition of the fiber washers at the end of the strut where it connects to the drum frame.

    The drum head is easily replaceable with the removal of one screw and the wedge. Replacements will be available for about $35 although I don’t expect there will be much need.

    "Remo manufactures both in the U.S. and overseas. Per our request, all future heads will be manufactured in the U.S. We will pay a bit more but we feel it’s worth it to us to be 100% U.S.A. made (consistent with our other instruments) not to mention the quality and production control advantages. I believe this puts us in a class by ourselves when it comes to US-made stringed instruments." -- Dale Webb, Designer and maker of Flukes
