Banjo Armrests - please scroll down the list.


 (AR00)

(AR00) "Vega" style banjo armrest, 8" diameter, chrome plated - second - 2.00

A simple design intended to be fitted to 8" banjos. These armrests have been removed from new ukulele banjos; most players in the UK don't play the uke in an "over-arm" style (like a 5-string banjo) but in an "under-arm" style like George Formby. This type of armrest requires considerable modification before it can be usefully fitted to a uke banjo for "Formby-style" playing - these are offered cheaply so that owners with a practical turn of mind can get a couple and adapt them as required.

(AR09)

(AR09) "Paramount" style banjo armrest, 11"/12", 24/28-bracket, chrome plated brass - 12.00

A simple double-leg design intended to be fitted to 11"- 12" banjos with 24 - 28 brackets. This is a modern version of a classic armrest; it is possible to adapt this armrest to fit banjos with different sizes and numbers of brackets.


This is the armrest which GOLD TONE describe (erroneously) as a "Hot Dog" armrest - this is just a mistake, as far as we can tell; the "Hot Dog" armrest which was fitted to Weymann & Bacon banjos in the 1920's looked exactly like half a hot dog sausge stuck on top of the tension ring.


This armrest is a bent flat bar type (often modified by the addition of a wooden or celluloid cover plate) which was fitted to "Paramount" (and "Paragon") banjo at the same time; the designs got mixed up somehow.
