Concertone Banjo uke (made by Slingerland)
Here is a branded uke, made by Slingerland. it is basically a Maybell model 20. but branded on the perch pole with the Concertone stamp. A very nice sounding uke, lightweight, but very well made. it has a great volume, and that "old time radio" sound coming through the calf skin vellum. On the restoration job, i stripped off the dirt and tarnish off the hooks, fitted new tuning pegs. the original ones were no good. added a good quality calf-skin and a set of Aquilas.
