“I was in search for a banjo armrest for my Deering Goodtime banjo and found The Dr. Arm GT online at Banjolit and ordered it. When I received the Dr. Arm GT it came in a nice and neat little box with the armrest, hardware, allen wrench, and instructions. Installation was a cinch, took about 2-3 minutes. It was a perfect fit. Workmanship is well done and clean. Nice and smooth. I love my Dr. Arm GT so much that I bought a second one for my Deering Goodtime banjo ukulele. Thanks Banjolit!!”

“I am absolutely delighted with all aspects – the armrest is superbly made and protected in its magnificent packaging. Fit and finish are flawless and as for the main reason for buying, namely to give my right hand a fair chance of picking the banjo, comfort is just amazing.  All banjos need to be fitted with these armrests as essential equipment.  I could not be more pleased.  Now back to practicing those tricky rolls…..”

“I was so satisfied with my first Dr Arm (Mahogany) purchase that I asked Richard if Banjolit could custom make a Dr Arm GT (Mahogany) for my 18 hook mahogany banjo. They were happy to do this for me, great customer service. As with my original purchase this GT armrest is also made from nice quality wood, smooth to touch, easy to install and fits my 18 hook banjo perfectly. Again, I recommend this product without hesitation.”

“Just like the other one, it was simple to attach and is very comfortable. I have tried every type of armrest; yours are the most comfortable, as well as the best looking.”

“Luckily Banjolit also offers the Dr. Arm GT version for the Deering Gootime banjos. The Dr. Arm GT is built with high precision and neatly fits to the Banjo’s tension ring. A mounting hardware clamps it down and keeps it in place. I soon discovered, that the wooden armrest not only looks good but is also very comfortable to play with.”
