Thinking about changing the head on my RK25, but I have no idea what height the crown is. Anyone with a similar model that knows the crown height?

According to the Recording King website, the OT25 has a high crown head.

I like medium crown because it allows the tension hoop to maintain a happy margin above the top of the tone ring when the head is tightened down

I just did a set up on an RK OT25 last week and it needed a high crown head for the tension hoop to come down low enough to clear the fingerboard. Pretty great sounding banjo!
