Goat Hide on a very early H. C Dobson Silver Bell

Posted by jbalch on Sunday, November 11, 2012

Vintage Banjos are sometimes a challenge - nothing is round and the parts don't fit perfectly.  But in spite of that, this head went on relatively easily. 

This is a very early Dobson - I did not even see a patent mark on the spun tone ring.

Looks Fantastic John and glad it wasn't unreasonably difficult. Also, thanks for coming by the house last week. We share a lot in common......Thanks, Bill

Thanks again for inviting me to your home. I had a great time. Maybe next time we can actually play some music. Let me know if you are ever in the Nashville area.

This Dobson should be finished later today.
