These comfortable wood banjo armrests not only look great but are ingeniously designed to fit any banjo and have a ergonomic curved surface for your wrist.
These banjo armrests made out of wood work great, way better for comfort and look a 100% better to me. They really makes the banjo look classier too. Because of the contrast between the high quality wood and nickel hardware on a banjo any slight variations in the shade or grain of the wood all blend no matter what. I never saw one of these I didn't like the look of.
I have one on the my Nechville Nickerson Signature banjo and added one to my Stelling Staghorn. They fit any banjo because of the way they attach too.
Nechville added this product in response to a growing number of players complaining of irritation or blocked blood circulation from cold, hard traditional metal armrests.
The curved top surface allows a more relaxed and natural arm position.
They are compatible with conventional (Hook and Nut style) banjos, as well as Nechville's patented Heli-Mount banjos.
These are well worth the money and will last forever.
They can easily be transferred to other banjos (just two screws)
I've got one of these and its a great alternative to the scuffed up looking nickel armrests and cold steel feel you get from most armrests. They really add a touch of class to your banjo. Thanks, Ross Nickerson
This is what it looks like on my banjo.
Wood Armrest on 18 Bracket Banjo
They also fit and work well on 18 bracket resonator or open back banjos. This customer with an 18 bracket banjo sent in these photos. Since the armrest does not attach to the brackets. The amount of brackets or distance between the brackets is irrelevant.
They fit most any banjo! They attach onto the lip edge of the head, not the brackets. Easy installation!
This armrest DOES NOT fit Deering Good Time Banjos
