From time-to-time, I have seconds with small cosmetic blemishes which I may choose to patch (see below). All will sound great and perform very well. When available, these heads are offered for immediate sale - "first-come-first-served" - at bargain prices. I try to keep this site updated - but cannot guarantee availability.


Refer to the photos and descriptions (below) for available heads. Please include the item number in your order (ex: BH00x).


Regarding patched heads: Occasionally a head will have small cosmetic spot(s) that I may decided to patch by gluing small circle(s) of hide on the underneath side. I have personally used patched hides for years – with no impact on tone or longevity. My guarantee – if one of these heads fails at the patched area, I’ll replace it for an additional charge (equal to the difference between the discounted price paid and the full cost of a new first-quality head).




BH005 11 13/16" (Vega) Unstained. Nice looking hide! Two (2) 1/4" patches. Regularly $85 now $50.
