#286 Banjo Head

Regular readers will remember a few days ago I received a couple of banjos which needed a little care and attention. The 'head' vellum I ordered arrived in the post today, here it is on the studio floor. It is made from (look away now, vegetarians) goat skin I really like the paper like transparency of it. I chose goat skin because calf skin is crazy money, and it just felt wrong using plastic on a 100 year old instrument.
