This is a reproduction of the old early 20th century Vega armrests and great for about any flathead banjo, both 5-string old time banjo and 4-string tenor banjo. It's not big and clunky like most modern armrests, but has a nice thin profile and is very comfortable. The best way to put it on your banjo is to attach it to the hook shafts with nylon lock ties, but you'll have to buy the nylon ties at a hardware store. I prefer to have the armrest sitting right on the tension hoop.
I got this for a used Deering Goodtime banjo I bought... it kinda fits it but not exactly. It's not angled quite the same as the banjo head clamps are, but it does the job and looks like it belongs on it. It might be possible to make it fit better with some well-placed bends, but it still works as is. It's held on with zip ties. The price was right and it does the job, so overall, not a bad purchase.
fits very well on most banjos and rides good too
