Hi, does anyone know where I could buy a Banjolele armrest for an 8 inch pot....similar to what i have on my banjos...I don't mind if it has to screw directly into the wooden pot itself.

I was wondering if these mandolin armrests at Elderly would work:

My first thought was probably not, as it doesn't appear the clamp is deep enough to clamp to a banjo uke pot. Then my next thought was, how hard could it be to make one of these? You could make the clamp from Home Depot parts and the armrest could be whatever random piece of metal or wood. Seems like a $10 project for someone with a little time...

This might work. No guarantees, but it is for an 8 inch pot. You might call up Elderly or Gryphon and see what they recommend. I am sure there is a way. Good luck.

Janet Davis Music offers a vintage wire style model.
Here's the link:

It's fairly inexpensive at $15, but I'm not sure what the shipping charge will be.
