Five-Star Banjo Armrest

About This Item

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.

Replacement for Gibson RB175

(Customer's Reviews)

Exact match for the old armrest.


Good Quality, Design Not the Best

(Customer's Reviews)

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.


Very nice finish

(Customer's Reviews)

Installation was easy and it looks great as well
