Five-Star Banjo Armrest

This sturdy original-style armrest fits a standard 24-bracket Mastertone banjo with 11" (279.40mm) diameter rim, for more comfortable playing.

Made of polished one-piece brass. Also available in a polished unplated model, suitable for engraving.

Nickel-plated mounting bolt and bar included with each armrest.

Notches for bracket hooks have 1-7/16" (36.51mm) spacing. The mounting bar fits behind two bracket hooks on the banjo, and the threaded 1/4" hex bolt secures the armrest to the bar.

Good Quality, Design Not the Best

This is the pro Gibson style armrest, no doubt there, but I find it slips down. If you want it to stay up you have to crank it so tight it bends the bracket hooks. I put a rubber tape on the facing side of the metal plate and that helps. Because the attachment plate is flat, there's not a lot of contact surface where it touches the round hook. That's why you have to tighten it so much. And the plate bends, too. Once it's up it's a nice armrest. Hint, Stew Mac, make a contact plate with rounded depressions for the hooks.

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.
