Nice addition to my banjo.

These hooks are well made and the finish is excellent. The threads were free of burrs and the nuts went on them easily. I purchased 24 of these and were was not one flawed hook in the bunch. Excellent quality and excellent product.

Not the same as the old Gibson or Waverly flat hook. These "modern" flat hooks are only bent to about 45 degrees. The older hooks were bent much further. I have pointed this out for many years.

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.

Hooked on banjos...

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!
