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 archtop 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.
