NEW thinner stock - will produce a bright, responsive, tone!


These hides are processed with sodium (salt) rather than harsher chemicals. They are smooth and clean. Salt treatment preserves the stiffness and strength of the rawhide. These are very sturdy with no visible flaws.


Please specify your preferred hide by number (ie: SALT 15x) in a message accompanying your order. I will try to keep the selection updated. But in the case of multiple requests for an individual hide - it will be sold first-come-first-served. I have additional stock that is not pictured on the website. Contact me if you are looking for a specific appearance.


SOMETIMES translucent areas become more opaque or off-white during mounting and stretching. The finished appearance may be different than what you see in the images.


These hides range approx:  .009 in. - .012 in. thick.   Feel free to message me with questions about suitability for your banjo.


They show great natural color and pattern. Some are translucent.


Available in standard sizes:



10 15/16" (Vega)

11 13/16" (Vega).


  • heads are made-to-order. The regular lead time is approx. 4-weeks - but may vary. Please contact me if you have questions about my current backlog and expected delivery.


Please contact me with any questions about suitability for your banjo.
