Does anyone know of some way to get an 11&1/8 inch skin head mounted on an 11 inch Rim ?
This will be a Rogers skin head possibly coming off a Paramount Leader. This head is in really good condition.
I don’t see how it could be possible but maybe someone has done it before or knows how it can be done.
Thank you

I have tried taking old Rogers skin heads from other banjos and remounting them on a proper sized tension ring. It’s really not worth the effort.

You have to soak the old skin head, remove it off the old tension ring without damaging it, and then get it perfectly set and centered on the new, smaller ring. Then you have to get it in the banjo without it all falling apart as you have about zero room for error.

You are better off putting up a post here and asking if anyone has an old Rogers head for sale. I’ve done it a few times and got a perfect hide each time.
