I'd be willing to bet that this head will contribute to some real ancient tones for a happy picker.

The owner of this banjo wants a new head for this awesome old Dobson rim. He also wants a few spares for others in his collection. Installing heads on vintage hardware is not "cut-and-dried" like the brand new rims that I normally use for pre-mounts. Old parts are not perfectly round .... and the tolerences are sometimes very tight. But I like a challange. I think this calfskin turned out great. I'm working on another goat skin today ... one more to go after that.

John that head looks perfect on that old rim. David E.
