3-star mottled ~ translucent ~ calfskin

Posted by jbalch on Thursday, February 13, 2014


I like these translucent calf hides.  They are very sturdy and have excellent tone.  3-star grade makes great value too.

This one is a sold custom order.

I like these heads too John. The one Dan Knowles mounted on Goshen is about 50/50 between the translucent and whiter areas; but It makes for a nice look once installed. I am sure I twill sound nice. David E.

These translucent calf hides are stiff & strong. I have used one like it on the Sagmoen banjo I carry in the car on business trips. That banjo is used in a wide range of weather and conditions ...the head has been reliable for several years now ... and it sounds great.
