Plastic vs calfskin: Did any well-known pros stick with 'skin after 1960?

Posted by Paul Bock on Friday, June 19, 2020

Just wondering if there were any well-known Bluegrass banjo players who did *NOT* switch to using a plastic head after around 1960?  I know that Earl Scruggs switched by then or sooner, but I was curious about the other "big names" of the day (Don Reno, Ralph Stanley, J.D. Crowe, Sonny Osborne, etc., etc.).
