A LITTLE HISTORY
The ukulele was becoming very popular in the teens – 1920’s; in part for some of the same reasons folks love the instrument today!
The ukulele was easy to carry, easy to learn, and boasted a fun joyful voice not found in other instruments. A drawback in the time before handy pick-ups and portable speakers was that the ukulele’s small body didn’t allow for a lot of volume.
By adding a Banjo style body, and a resonator at the back, the projection was multiplied mightily!
The closed-back banjolele has a wooden ‘bowl’ or resonator which allows for increased projection to the audience.
The style of music being played, desired volume, and accompanying instruments might all have a bearing on your choice in style. For most Bluegrass arrangements, a closed-back, resonator style Banjolele is the preferred instrument. The closed-back allows for more projection against other instruments being played, and a twangier feel to the sound.
