8" banjo head?

8" banjo head?

Postby Steve Dickerson » Sun Dec 31, 2017 11:48 pm

I'm restoring a John Grey banjo ukulele and need a low-crown 8" head. I haven't found one yet, though I've found an 8" bongo drum head that might work. Does anyone have ideas on where i might get what I need? I know it's possible to re-skin the existing one, but I'd rather have something ready-made.
