These custom heads are available with this very special design which is similar to the design on the banjo head Pete Seeger has performed with all around the world for many years.
The head is made of a smooth white mylar and printed in beautiful color by Remo's custom head designs.
The printing is designed so that the Deering logo is positioned under the tailpiece and the lettering can be read when played right handed. On left handed banjos the Deering logo can be installed by the neck so that the lettering can be read when it is played.
The proceeds above our cost were going directly to Pete Seeger before he passed in gratitude for the many years of great folk music he has given to the world. They now go to The Pete Seeger family. Pete Seeger in no way or fashion, endorsed this banjo head. Greg Deering has taken it upon himself to do this project for the benefit of Pete Seeger with no strings attached.
Some of the organizations Pete Seeger supports are the Hudson River Clearwater Revival, which has made great headway cleaning up the water of the Hudson River, and Sing Out Magazine. Own a piece of this great folk movement toward building a better life together through music.
Head diameter: 11 inches
