Bob Smakula has that size and is great to deal with.

I do have that size in many options and crown heights.

Call now! Operators standing by!

I hope you have a large staff of operators standing by !
I'm expecting a 10.5 inch rim, from a TB00 tomorrow.
I'm thinking of maybe trying an old calfskin head.
I'm not sure what to do about a neck for this rim.
I have some necks for 11 inch rims, but I am not expecting that will work.
Still, I think whatever the end result is going to be, it's going to turn out well.

This banjo has a 1/4” hoop . I’m not sure which crown to get ??
I have a 11” neck , I’m thinking of spray glueing sandpaper to the 10 1/2” rim and working the neck back and forth to fit it . It shouldn’t take that long , work through the grits till it’s tight .
