Picture on home page.
More (and better) pictures - like closeups, would help.
Looks like a mandolin to me.. There is a Mando Hangout as well.
Ooops....now there are more pictures...of a banjo. Those should help future posters.

The banjo is likely a low-end and unmarked Slingerland, based on the peghead shape and shell construction. No idea on the mandolin.
I think it is likely a low-end Slingerland May Bell
Banjo is definitely a Slingerland product, probably sold under a wholesaler's or music store's name. I have no clue on the mandolin, although it looks inexpensive.
