Good evening,

After clearing out my mother inlaws loft I came across this banjo. There are no marks and it's a little worst for wear. She didn't know anything about it, it seems to belong to my late brother in law as it has his name on it.

I would be appreciate it if anyone has any idea of the brand?

Thanks

Could you add a full front pic of the peghead & a good side view of the body ?

Other photos that will be helpful;
Full back
Close up of back of the peghead
Remove resonator (loosen the screw-in the back to remove) and take a few close up pictures.

Also; What area of the world is the banjo located? The banjo's region can be considered when we try to ID it.

The backs held on by four self tapping screws on the front. I am in England.

Thanks

This is a new brand of banjo ukulele to me, most likely British. Contact the people from the above link, or contact Theukuleleman. They will have a better knowledge of British labels.

Whatever the brand or maker, that is a sharp uke. How does it sound?
