Simple Elegance

I was restoring a 5 String Banjo that I had built from a Stew Mac kit back in the 70's and was worried that this armrest would not fit correctly. It fits perfectly and its simplicity is a great match for this old banjo. I experienced a bit of a challenge while attaching the armrest.. you need 3 hands.. I solved the problem by using a cardbord shim to hold the attachment bracket in place while I turned the screw.

I purchased a Banjo Armrest for the old Banjo I recently renovated for my wife. It is a small size, so the mount needed some slight modifications. These were easy to make, and the rest fits perfectly. It also made it much easier for my wife to play this Banjo, as you might expect! Thanks, Stewmac for having the materials we need, when we need them!

Great product. When I received it I noticed it was nickel plated and polished on both sides top and bottom, not just the top. That shows very good quality.

cobalt armrest

I do cobalt plating of the plain brass armrest.I must first use an armrest with no pits or flaws of any kind, and is the same weight and quality of the pre-war gibson armrest. These fit the bill with very little prepping for plating and they look great.
