Ludwig 'Wendell Hall' Banjo Ukulele
Wendell Hall was an American Vaudeville entertainer who, like George Formby with
the Dallas company, had Ludwig make instruments bearing his name.
He was a popular radio favourite,
recording artist and composer during the 1920's and 1930's.He was
the composer of 'It Ain't Gonna Rain No Mo', as well as many other
popular songs of the era. His personality comes through well on his
many recordings and was very diversified including country, blues
and popular songs.
These instruments were still made by the Ludwig craftsmen
but were not quite as elaborate in decoration and were therefore slightly cheaper.
Consisting of a heavily nickeled bronze shell that has a
Flaredge extending from the rim to the edge of the resonator with slotted cut outs. Self
centering nickel plated bronze counter hoop with sixteen top tension steel brackets. A two
piece American walnut neck with an ebonised fingerboard and inlaid pearl position DOTS.
Sixteen nickel silver frets and a laminated American walnut highly polished resonator.
Equipped with friction tuning pegs and detachable arm rest.
Although a slightly cheaper instrument it loses nothing
in the quality of sound when compared with its brothers, with accurate fretting, easy
fingering and a powerful but sweet tone.
Again complete with usual Ludwig case.
