Spanky Banjo Ukes are built by luthiers Phil Morris and Dan Fobert. Combining Phil's longtime love affair with the ukulele and Dan's creativity and innovative construction techniques, with input from other ukulele and banjo players they have developed an idea for an instrument built in the traditional way but utilizing up to date features. Spanky Banjo Ukes use a longer, wider concert scale length neck for easier play and a synthetic head to eliminate the problems natural skin heads have with changes in humidity. The advanced Renaissance and Fiberskyn head materials produce a mellow natural tone while maintaining plenty of banjo volume and punch.
Resonators even out the tone of the instrument and also provide a palette for Dan's inlay artistry
