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).
