I've had fun with the Yellowstone synthetic banjo head material. One of the perks for me has been to put heads on some interesting banjos. Last year at Clifftop I stayed busy almost around the clock putting heads on banjos for people, many of which were emergency repairs.... one of which was a banjo that had been run over by a truck ..... the owner of that banjo placed in the banjo contest ! ! The latest re-headed banjo was this wonderful little S. S. Stewart Piccolo banjo, the "Little Wonder" model (coffee cup shown for scale).
I bet Mr. Stewart didn't mean for this banjo to be frailed... with apologies to Mr. Stewart, here's a YouTube clip of the banjo in action:

The clip is wonderful, Mark! Mr. Stewart can live with it, (oops, maybe he's rolling instead). Thanks!
