Heads  John Balch Skin Heads Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Where Purchased: October 2016 directly from John

Overall Comments

I purchased a four star goat hide head from John to replace my Ren. head. It looks and sounds great, and was very easy to install.

It was a pleasure doing business with John. He is very responsive, and shipped the head as soon as payment was received.

I purchased a John Balch 12" goatskin head for my "Woody" banjo a couple of months ago and it is the best thing to ever happen to my banjo. It sounds so Old-Timey now that each time I play it I can swear that I hear the steam-whistle from a paddle-boat going off somewhere in the distance. John is hands down one of the nicest and easiest people that I have dealt with since being a member here on the BHO and his product is top-notch. Thanks again John, me and my banjo really appreciate your tireless efforts and attention to quality.

These are some of the finest skin heads you'll find, for any price. Expertly pre-mounted on the flesh hoop and reasy to install in most cases, with little or no wetting.
I never enjoyed mounting a skin head (uggg) and with his heads available at this price, i wont be mounting any more in the future,lol. You wont go wrong with this head choice.
