trying to find a 10 3/4" medium crown fiberskyn or barring that, Renaissance head and can't find one anywhere. Is there a Covid shortage, did they stop making them, or what the heck?

No, but his page does answer the question. There is a shortage.

The Remo factory was closed for a Safe At Home order in April and May, 2020. They have resumed manufacturing with a significantly smaller crew than pre-pandemic. We expect the supply of banjo heads to continue to be limited going in to 2021 Please plan appropriately.

There isn't exactly a shortage. OK, at my shop anyway.  Remo has been slow at filling my orders and sometimes only sending partial shipments. Knowing this, I have tried to order ahead of what I would normally keep in stock. So far that seems to be working as most of the heads I offer on my banjo head web page are in stock.
