Some Gold Tone Banjos and Banjo Ukulele's have flattened hooks that tighten the banjo head.
They will fit, but you will need to replace or modify 2 of the hooks for it to fit. The flattened
hooks will not fit in the dovetail pins of the armrest. Most customers with the flattened pins
replace them with 2 round hooks.

  1. Beautiful and easy to install 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2019

    I bought the ivory model. Looks great, no problems installing on a custom banjar.

  2. Best armrest out there! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th May 2017

    I originally bought a Thinline armrest for an 11" banjo I had. It served me well for years, very comfortable. When I sold that instrument and bought a 12", the first thing I did was order another armrest. I like them because they are comfortable, good looking, and are unobtrusive. I was also very impressed with the service. Doug responded promptly to inquiries and got the armrest to me quickly. If (when?) I buy another banjo - I'll buy another armrest!

  3. I like it! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Oct 2016

    I really like it. It is comfortable. If it was a little longer that might make it better. It slides on supports sometimes and has slid to the wide place in the groove and one end has come off. I just check it periodically to make sure that it is still centered on the posts.

  4. I have two- they're great! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2016

    I bought the first from Elderly for my 11" Vega Old Time Wonder, then ordered one in ebony for my 12" Rickard. They're comfortable, beautiful and easy to install regardless of the number of brackets on your instrument. Highly recommended!!!

  5. Great Piece of gear 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2016

    Can't say enough good things about this armrest. Great engineering thought went into it.

  6. Can't go wrong! Well constructed; easy to install; esthetically pleasing. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2016

    This will fit all round-hook banjos regardless the number of the hooks. Took me less than 10 minutes to install. Looks great; feels great. I've been using it for a good month now and couldn't be more pleased.

  7. Re: Thinline 12" solid surface ebony banjo armrest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2016

    Just installed the Thinline armrest. Wow! Just what the (banjo) doctor ordered -- smart design, versatile, and so far as I can tell, high quality.

    Add my name to the list of satisfied customers!
    Cheers and thanks!

  8. Best Armrest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2016

    The BanjoiMate Thinline Armrest is simply the best I have ever used. It is well made, easy to install, and is effective without taking up much space. I highly recommend it!!!

  9. Works great! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2016

    Just as advertised. Very pleased with result. A little tricky to get it in place on a 90+ year old , unknown brand banjo but much more comfortable to play now.

  10. Sturdy, versatile, and elegant! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2016

    Thinline armrests are just the right balance of form and function. You have several different color choices and the satin finish looks good against nickel hardware, plus it's warm to the touch. The flexibility of the mounting system sold me. Thinlines really do fit a wide range of banjos! I have installed four of them so far. Highly recommended.
