AMAZING collection of vintage rims.  All need new hides.

These should deserve the very best you have to offer; are they yours?

They're mine! Middle is a 9" H.C. Dobson - very early one (that Colin Vance converted). Bottom right is an A.C. Fairbanks Banjo mandolin (7" head) that Doug Unger converted into a Piccolo - no tone ring but sounds AMAZING. Others going clockwise from there...A.C. Fairbanks Banjo-Mandolin (7.5" head) - not-yet converted, Washburn Imperial 10.5, 1920s Vega Whyte Laydie 11 13/16, and finally, super early George C. Dobson Spunover with HCD style silver bell tonering, very crude hardware but very cool!
