Fluke concert size banjolele July 22, 2017
Reviewer: Richard7 from Western Australia  
Nice but one problem: non geared tuners make it very hard to tune.

Awesome December 27, 2016
Reviewer: Sandra B from North Wales U.K.  
This is for me a perfect banjolele. Its so lightweight but the sound that comes out is noway lightweight!  Stunning tone, low action - really couldn't find anything not to like.    I purchased through the UK dealer, both he and the guys at Magic Fluke have given brilliant service, questions answered really quick, good advice etc. etc.

The Banjo Sound I was looking for. February 6, 2016
Reviewer: Jan from Denmark  
After 40 yrs playing tenor banjo (trying) I converted to ukulele.
After 8 ukuleles came the Firefly Concert and finally the sweet, mellow sound I wanted.
It has all five stars in sound and playability.
It stays in tune and doesn't show any wear or slackness of the head.
Here in Denmark, it's an eyecatcher and ukuleleplayers simply MUST try it.
I love it.
My next instrument is going to be the Tenor Fluke in Koa - then I only need those two

Beautiful, great sounding instrument December 23, 2015
Reviewer: Ann from New York  
I LOVE my Firefly!  I had agonized for quite a while about adding another instrument to my uke collection. I'd been considering a resonator uke or a banjolele. The banjoleles that I saw were often heavy with a lot of bulky metal. My dad owns a Fluke uke which he loves and based on having played that many many times, I decided to just take a chance on the Firefly. I haven't been at all sorry. This instrument is beautifully made, lightweight, easy to play, and LOUD. It really projects!  For a small instrument, it has an incredible sound. My dad and I play in a folk group together and we both play ukulele and because he taught me, we both have the exact same playing style. Adding the Firefly into the mix has really helped because the sound is so different. Thank you Magic Fluke Company! Please come up with more uke hybrid instruments, like a mandolin uke or a resonator uke!

Can't put it down December 23, 2015
Reviewer: Chris W. from Victoria, BC  
I've had my Soprano Firefly for about three months now, and I have played it for at least half an hour every  single day.  That's how much fun it is.  The quality and playabiIity are superb.  I replaced the stock strings with Fremont Black Line low-G strings (note that this required making the string slot on the bridge just a teensy bit bigger.)  Rainbow Connection on the uke never sounded so good.  8^)

I was a little worried about the bridge sinking into the head over time, so I inserted a small circle of closed cell foam under the head right beneath the bridge.  This supports the head and also mutes the instrument a bit, which is handy for practice.  Probably not necessary, but it brings me a little peace of mind.

Anyway, I can't recommend the Firefly enough.  I'm taking mine on vacation this summer!
