This package is perfect for the player who wants to maintain a beautiful sound on their Deering Banjo by replacing the Top Frosted head, or try a new one for a custom look and voice.
This package includes the necessities for changing your banjo head.
*For Deering, Vega, and Tenbrooks Banjos only. Will Not Fit Goodtime Banjos. Deering Smile Bridge type included will complement your string selection*
Deering’s new patent-pending Smile™ Banjo Bridge is created to fit into the natural curve created on a banjo head when under string tension. This relieves the stress found in a traditional bridge allowing the Smile™ Bridge to vibrate without constriction. The result is an instantly fuller and more expressive mid-range, less constricted low-end frequencies, and a wonderful balance across all strings.
This new and innovative GRIP banjo peg winder by Music Nomad illustrates the high quality, versatility, and ease. It features:
HERE ARE THE WIDE SELECTION OF BANJO HEADS TO CHOOSE FROM:
Top Frosted- The most popular head made for a 5-string banjo. Crisp bright with a good snap, not too much sustain, good clarity and note distinction.
Black-Mellow in tone with long sustain, lots of low frequency response and not a crisp as a clear or bottom frosted head. More sustain that the fiberskyn.
Renaissance-Smooth top & opaque honey color. Tone is a brighter than found in the fiberskyn head. Another favorite of old time clawhammer players.
Fiberskyn-Warm, round character. A favorite with old time clawhammer players.
Clear-Sweet tone with clear distinction and long sustain, a bit less bass response than the bottom frosted head.
Prism-Showy appearance with smooth surface like a black head but brighter in tone, popular for tenor, plectrum,and Crossfire banjos both for tone and appearance.
Kevlar-Tends to emphasize the high frequencies like you would hear in an arch top banjo, stiffer with a surface texture like an orange peel. This head sustains well and is crisp. It is sweet and strong on the six string banjos.
Bottom Frosted-Popular with tenor and plectrum banjoists because the smooth outer surface is quieter when strumming. The head has good bass response.
