Coffee stained Goat hide - I like this one a lot!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

This head sold quickly in the classifieds.  I coffee stained it during the mounting process.  I love the natural look of it.  The color doesn't look contrived - just aged.  The hue is a very nice amber that will look great on lots of different banjos.

I mounted this hide with the flesh side facing up.  (I normally reverse and put the grain side up). This type of mounting shows more contrast between the fleshy white areas and the translucent spots. 

The coffee: I used a Kona blend ground from whole beans - for you connoisseurs ;<)

I'm mostly a clawhammer banjo player.I’ve released two cd’s (Carry On John /2002 and ~HOT~ Biscuit Jam /2004).  I played as part of “Pa’s fiddle band” on the CD: Happy Land Musical Tributes to Laura Ingalls Wilder  (Pa’s Fiddle recordings 2005). My original banjo music was published on a CD which accompanied the book: The Voice of The Heart by Chip Dodd (Providence House Publishing 2001).  Many years ago, I played clawhammer  and bluegrass style banjo on an old vinyl LP with the Pure Mountain Water Band (First Jug /1979).  I currently have other recording projects in the works…so please “stay tuned.”I’ve been very fortunate to have served nearly 30 years years with the Uncle Dave Macon Days Festival organization. .
