I was just wondering if you all in your great experience could help out a banjo newbie like myself in procuring a new banjo head for this fine instrument I got from eBay a while back. I don't remember what the auctioneer said about it, sadly it has been more than 60 days and I can't find any record of it. I want to say he said it was a Sears Roebuck from early 1900. I don't know. Since the head was torn I decided I would take it apart piece by piece, clean it up and attach an old gas can to it. Its a novelty, but I'd rather have the original pot attached with a head of some sort. any ideas on what size or type I should get and where I should get it from? I want to use it for classic playing. Thanks in advance.
Also I made a short video with it back in April, it isn't in the classic style, but it shows the neck and peghead. <object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/N4liXMwrxPc&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/N4liXMwrxPc&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>
