These SPECIAL goat hides are produced in Jamacia by master banjo builder and artist: JEFF MENZIES.
Jeff Menzies' hides are hand-processed, without chemicals or dyes. The color and patterns are 100% natural. Each is unique. Every one is very attractive! The thickness will vary somewhat from one to another (see notes below)- but all are very good!
Please specify your preferred hide by number (ie: MENZIES 343) 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.
NOTE: I indicated the approximate thickness on each hide. This is the average of about six (6) measurments around the perimiter. These hides all have sturdy texture. They run a little thinner than some previous batches of Menzies hides. They should sound great and perform very well!
The photos are taken in natural light against a wood background. Nothing was done to enhance them.
The hoop in the photos is 12" o.d - for reference.
1/8" square -section brass flesh hoop is standard on all heads (optional: upgraded spiral hoop is available for an additional charge).
