Very secure method of hanging a banjo. By:
My three banjos that I like to look at and play needed a VERY secure method of displaying. I found it with these banjo hangers. They even provide the screws with is great. I screwed them onto my cedar plank walls which are very thick, screwed in the hanger part and up my banjos went. Easy and quick. I highly recommend these. I see they have them for guitars also.
Finally, a good hanger for a banjo By:
I have looked for about 20 years and was never able to find a good hanger that fit the headstock of my banjo. I have a Gibson RB-3, which is about 15 lbs, and it's my pride and joy. I did not want to risk using a flimsy hanger, or one that would scar the headstock or leave residue on it (I had used one that did this in the past). This hanger is solid and I feel OK about letting my banjo hang on the wall now.Just be sure you mount this in a wall stud so that it doesn't fall out of the wall when the banjo is in it!
Versatile, easy to install, great solution to a floor stand. By:
These wall holders have been the perfect solution for getting my beloved's banjo off the ground and away from baby hands, dog tails, and cat claws. Two were purchased as a daddy/daughter duo gift for Father's Day. Easy installation, nothing crazy with going into plaster vs. drywall (heck... I've even seen these puppies mounted in a bus). I don't worry about any instruments falling over anymore... No more accidental bumps and bruises. These have fit both a banjo and banjo-uke, for reference.
Exactly as Advertised By:
I am very happy with this hanger. Easy to install and looks great on the wall!
Looks great, holds well and will be buying more of them. By:

This hanger is perfect. Hung up our banjo and even better that it is made in the USA AND.
Easy to install and looks great By:
What a great product!!!! I am so happy with the outcome and so happy that I could find your exact hangers for the violin and the guitars.
Great product! By:
Great quality and easy to install. Turns out, the guitar shop in town uses the exact same ones.I ordered 3 hangers for a banjo, a mandolin, and a guitar. All the same great quality, but one came without wall anchors while the other came with them. They did all contain screws. At any rate, that was an easy fix after a quick trip to Walmart.If you need to hang your instrument, this is a solid purchase.

it works as it should for my banjo, clears tuning pegs no problem By:
works as it should for my banjo... a normal guitar hanger doesn't have relief for tuning pegs.. good
Five Stars By:
Perfect
Done. By:
Easy and works great. FYI, get a decent i.e GOOD drywall mount OR use a stud in the wall. If u use the drywall to mount then get a drywall mount that is rated for some actual weight. Place the guitar or banjo gently into the holder. The guitar and banjo doesn’t touch the wall while hanging which is nice. The mount design is almost perfect. 10 minutes to figure out where u want to put it. 2 minutes to mount to the wall.

Five Stars By:
Very nice case for the money. Extra large for additional items besides the banjo
Good-looking Solid Quality Case By:
This is a beautiful case. Seemingly well made with quality materials. It fit my German-made Hofler well, albeit a little snug around the body. But to be fair, my resonator is 14” in diameter exactly and I read that it measured either 14” or 14.25” on the interior. I’m guessing it’s probably closer to 14.25”-14.5” without the thick padding — so probably right around 14” with it. But even so, it still fits in fine and if nothing else, will at least have less room to move around. I read someone’s review about the handle being slightly off center. I was surprised when it first arrived how much it was off, but with my resonator banjo inside, it’s weighted closer to center so carries like regular. Overall solid case, good quality, and sharp looks for a decent price. We’ll see how it holds up after a few months. With the Gator name, I’m pretty sure it will last.
Durable. By:
Love this case, sturdy and clean. Puts up with international travel.
Great house and occasional out case By:
This case is very light and has very good foam padding all around. What I like about this case as opposed to others in this price range is that it is a snug fit with more that 1" of soft padding around the rims and padding to match the contour of the arched back. The other Canadian hardshell cases that I own have 1/2 inch of less spongy padding and a 1/2 inch of play so the mando can shift around inside the case. My instrument is a hybrid A-style which I built straight off an F-5 blueprint, minus the points and scroll (think Collings A) and it fits perfectly in this case. For what I need, storage in the house and trips out to play music with others, it is perfect. I'm not a regularly gigging musician however, and never just throw my mando case in the back of a van with a bunch of heavy sound equipment that could crush it anyway. What this case is not is bomb-proof super protection, that will easily cost you 3-6 times as much. The canvas covering is untreated, some varnish to impede picking up dirt would be perfect but for this price, I really can't complain
