BanjoMate - Wood Banjo Armrest That Fits All Bracket Configurations

These are the original hand made Banjomate Thinline Armrests made by Dan Campbell

This well made adjustable banjo armrest fits any banjo no matter how many head brackets! The Banjomate Thinline banjo armrest is specially designed to custom fit old time open back banjos of all sizes, works great on bluegrass banjos with resonator's and fits any banjo with hook style mounted heads. It also fits and makes a comfortable wood banjo armrest for Deering Goodtime banjos.

This is perfect for old time open back banjos that have different distances between the brackets. Also perfect for bluegrass or resonator banjos that are unique and don't have the standard 24 bracket spacing. Of course they work great on normal spacing but this is the only one that I know of that adjusts to fit any bracket spacing. Ross Nickerson

Unique mounting system utilizes dovetail track with plated mounting pins.
Nickel plated pins (standard) are designed to attach to Banjo's hooks, regardless of spacing.

  • Fits all hook style banjo heads 11" or 12".
  • Adjusts up & down, side to side and mounts with
  • custom hex socket-head stainless steel knurled thumb screws.
  • Hand polished, comfortable, a nice addition to any Banjo.
  • 6 7/8" length, 25/32" top surface
  • Money back guarantee.

Bela Fleck uses the BanjoMate Armrest.
He chooses it for tone. The way it attaches does not touch or block the head and there is less tension on the head brackets than on traditional armrests which can affect the tone too. See a video below.

BanjoMate armrest
Just received and installed on my 1897 S.S.Stewart Special Thoroughbred. Love it! Easy to install and like the slim unobtrusive size. Great design and fit. Very pleased with Mr. Campbell's product.

Hi Kathy and Banjo - I would just like to thank you for your prompt service in dealing with my order. It is a very good product, both elegant and very nicely manufactured. It also works extremely well. The postal method you used in sending it to me was really fast. It arrived on November 7th and I think it was the fastest delivery of anything I’ve ever received from the USA.Best wishes Alan

It is actually a finely crafted piece of genuine curly-maple and looks GREAT on my curly-maple Deering/Vega. Cheers and Blessings. Edward Kosky
