Heads  Remo Fiberskyn3 head Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

I have used hide heads for quite a long time, but I tore a head recently, so I had to get a new one. I decided that it might be a good idea to have at least one banjo with something other than natural hide. I had a Fiberskyn3 put on this week, and it sounds great, possibly better than the hide head, but at least as good. I'm not a total convert yet, but the Fiberskyn3 has shown me that there are options for those of us who prefer the OT-type sound.

I just installed a Fiberskyn head on my banjo and really love the sound... Take into account that my previous head was a Remo blackhead that was very smooth and shiny( a 5 star ). I like the warmer less pingy sound of the Fiberskyn. It's a little more old timey sounding to me... I do however wonder about the durability of the Fiberskyn.. Anybody know anything about how long they last?
