Folk Instruments

Folk instruments is the broad category we use to group Ukuleles, Banjos, Mandolins, Harmonicas, Melodicas and more. All of these instruments are perfect for adding a unique flavour to an ensemble or band, or may be used specifically in certain genres - i.e. banjo is most often associated with country and folk music. Ukuleles, Banjos and Mandolins are similar in design to a guitar with strings running across a fretted neck, but with wildly different tunings. The Harmonicas and Melodicas produce a similar sound, with air being blown past reeds, but are played in a very different way. The instruments in the folk category are also perfect for those looking for a gift for the guitar player who already seems to have everything!
