The Barnes & Mullins UBJ1 Banjo Ukulele is a hybrid folk instrument made in the tradition of many banjo-ukes before it. The UBJ1 is scaled and strung as a Ukulele, the result of which is an unmistakably ‘Ukulele Banjo’ in both tone, feel and appearance. It features a Mahogany resonator with a Remo 8″ weatherking coated head, offering both unique looks and sound. With a gorgeous antique stain gloss finish, a no-knot style tailpiece and an 18 fret Ovangkol fingerboard with dot inlays, this stylish instrument will make you stand out on any stage. Other features include open gear tuners with chrome buttons, a Maple bridge with a Ovangkol tip and a Mahogany neck.

Barnes & Mullins Origins
In 1894, Mr Albert Mullins and Mr S. Bowley Barnes started “The Jo”, their famous musical instrument journal.
Specialising in all things banjo, they soon began manufacturing their own banjos as well as importing many other instruments. The original Barnes and Mullins banjos are still sought after today, with collectors seeking them out all over the world.
Sadly in 1914 at the age of 40, Albert Mullins drowned when the ‘Empress of Ireland’ sank on the St Lawrence River. He was on the home leg of a 2 year sales trip.
Bowley Barnes continued the business thereafter, and what he had started with his partner years earlier in Bournemouth now moved to Rathbone Place, London.
In 1976, Mark Barnes – son of Bowley Barnes – moved the business to Grays Inn Road, Bloomsbury. Sadly in 1986, Mark Barnes died. He was greatly admired and respected by employees and customers alike who were quick to tell of his fair and generous nature.
In 1999, Bruce Perrin – a Director since 1986 – became Managing Director and moved the business from London to the current location – Grays Inn House – a modern 46000sqft warehouse and office facility in Oswestry, Shropshire.
Bruce Perrin says “We are excited about the future and are constantly looking at ways to innovate and evolve, yet Barnes and Mullins has always endeavoured to put the customer at the top of its priority list”.
