First Class Once Again

Stew Mac once again has a product that is both precisely machined and "nice to look at". These brackets were superior to the originals on a "name brand" banjo I recently purchased on Banjo Hangout.

I have used several sets of the StewMac banjo bracket hooks and nuts over the past few years. I have used them with some pre-war classics and for more modestly priced instruments from the 50's and 60's. They are well made, nice plating and always make the banjo sparkle! Looks are not sound but hey banjo owners like their bling!

Replaced rusty hooks on my 1927 B&D Silver Bell, used the original nuts, and they look great.

Nice Hooks BUT.....

By Mick Downey from Debary, Fl

They do not come with nuts...The old ones that came off do not fit, and I did not see on the site where you can buy them, I ended up having to put the old ones back on.
