Skins

 


Backup Banjo 1

11" Remo Weatherking, frosted outside in low, med or high crown

PLEASE NOTE: crown height is NOT a matter of personal preference, it's a measurement - low crown is usually only for archtop banjos. Crown height is the vertical distance from the top of the head's mounting band to the top surface of the head. A banjo with a flathead tone ring (or a flat-topped banjo) requires a medium or high crown head. High crown - 1/2", Medium - 7/16" , Low - 3/8". MEASURE your banjo for the correct head diameter. Because your banjo's rim may be slightly out of round, take at least three diameter measurements at different points on the outside of the banjo's tone ring or rim top. Use the average diameter to the nearest 1/16" to order the correct size. Most modern banjos, including Mastertone-style instruments, use an 11"-diameter head.
