Thanks to John for a fine product.  I just put his Special Select mottled goatskin head on my AE Smith internal resonator and I am amazed at how good it looks and sounds.  This is the first skin head I have used, but it won't be the last.  My other banjos are jealous of the old-time sound and look.

I purchased a new premounted goatskin head from John Balch to replace one that had ripped on my 11" Romero.  I sent John a PM through the hangout and he responded right away.  I told him what I was looking for (his "four star", coffee stained head) and he told me that he had several orders in the queue and that mine would take a couple of weeks.  I was pleased to hear back only a week later that the new head was ready and it showed up in the mail only a day later.  The head itself was high quality, interestingly patterned and suited well the aged brass and cherry aesthetic of the banjo.  Installation was very easy (just like any other premounted head) and the tone is fantastic.  All in all, a good purchasing experience and great product that I would recommend to anyone.  

You can see and hear the head here
