A nickel-plated brass reproduction of the early 1900s Vega armrest, it's secured by the banjo's bracket hooks.

Fits a 24 or 28-bracket banjo with 11" (279.40mm) diameter rim, or Vega-style 10-15/16" (277.81mm) diameter rim and 3-1/2" to 4-1/2" (88.90mm to 114.30mm) bracket hook spacings. It will also fit the Deering Goodtime banjo.

Also Fits...  Radio King Dirty Thirty Tenor

(Customer's Reviews)

I put one on a Vega once so I thought I would try this on the Radio King Dirty Thirty Tenor.

It does fit, but I had to round out (with a small round file) the outside edges of both slots about 1/8" on each side. Perfect.


Vega Rambler Fit

(Customer's Reviews)

I picked one up a while ago and it fit very nicely on a 50's Vega Rambler I was reconditioning. I'll try it again soon when another banjo comes onto the bench.


Nice armrest but didn't exactly fit new Goodtime Banjo

(Customer's Reviews)

I ordered this for my Deering Goodtime, but the hooks on the banjo were not quite long enough to attach it. This is one of the recent Goodtimes banjos, so maybe the hooks are different? Anyway, attached it with a couple of small nylon twist ties and it is fine otherwise.
