The Firefly Banjo Ukulele, like a luminescent lightning bug, is great to have around a campfire, and attracts lots of attention. This marvelous hybrid combines the ease of playing the uke with the distinctive twang of a traditional banjo. The Firefly is lightweight, travels well, and sounds delightful.
