Duke 10 has been launched as a solution to create a lightweight yet powerful banjolele. This remarkable instrument has no excessive hardware, heavy woods, pointless resonators or embellishments that don’t add value or tunefulness and only increase the cost. The instrument is lightweight and produces amazing sound and is sooo easy to play. It is fully adjusted right out of the box meaning users can start playing immediately.
Not only is the DUKE 10 light to hold at half the weight of the 4lb+ monsters, it is an acoustic/electric instrument as well as a strummer. It is inexpensive to buy without sacrificing quality meaning anyone can afford it to polish their talents. Furthermore, it is durable with some of the finest components and elegant construction.
