This is the banjo head that Batman would use...or Johnny Cash...or about anyone else who really likes the color black!
The Deering black banjo head is strikingly different, this head is somewhat mellow in tone with long sustain, lots of low frequency response (bass) and not as crisp as a clear or bottom frosted head. More sustain than the fiberskyn and not really as plunky at all. Nice smooth satin feel as well!
Head diameter: 11 inches
Medium Crown - 7/16" ( Fits most archtops AND flatheads) High Crown - 1/2" (Fits most flatheads).
To determine which crown height you need, measure from the top of the stretcher band (metal ring around circumference of head) to the top of the head.
