Armadillo Armrest

The Armadillo Armrest is Pisgah Banjo’s feature wooden armrest! It was ergonomically designed to improve playing and allow for the most comfortable playing experience. This handcrafted armrest is made in the USA at the Pisgah Banjo Company workshop using only native Appalachian Hardwoods. Mounting feet are hand-made from antiqued brass that allows for easy installation and adjustment with only a bracket wrench or The Banjo Tweaker required for installation. L-feet attach to the banjo’s bracket shoes and hooks using the tension nuts and are compatible with all hook mounted heads, regardless of bracket spacing. It is universally sized to fit any brand 11″ and 12″ open-back banjo by floating over the tension hoop and head, while not interfering with your banjo’s tone. Select your choice of wood: Walnut, Persimmon or Cherry. Due to the nature of wood, grain, and color may vary.
