        Comments about Remo Coated Topside Banjo Head:

        I'm so new at this that I'm not even a novice! I realized right away that the banjo I was given for my birthday had a tension ring that was not tightened evenly. My instructor agreed that the old head would not be salvageable. This new head fit as it was intended (and matched the original), but I should have gotten a Remo "high" head instead. This is my first experience ordering from Musician's Friend (and, I have since placed another order!). I realize that almost everyone sells Remo heads, but MF's customer service is next to none! They shipped from a hub centrally located in the good ol' U.S.of A. It arrived the day before it was expected, and in perfect condition.

            Every banjo player will need a replacement head at some point. Not too many choices these days. Remo has always had a good product. Works as expected. Just need to know the exact size that you need. The prices on here flucuate more than the price of Gasoline, Its a great choice for Most styles of banjo playing.

                  Overall, it's a good solid banjo head. You won't go wrong with this one.
                  All the features you would expect in a banjo head.
                  Looks to be good quality.
                  In my opinion they are a bit pricey for what they are.

                              It is a little weird that the crown logo is different than the remo one I got from another luthier supply place but so far this one has worked satisfactorily. As usual fast free shipping.

                                            Rebuilding a very old banjo. 11 inch head didn't fit. Returned for a 11.2 that was perfect.

                                                  The head is solid.
                                                  What I did'nt like is I ordered this from Musisians Friend in California. But the head came from Kansas?
                                                  Took a long time for delivery and they packed this single head in a huge box (3' x 3') filled with brown paper, but the head was just laying on top.
                                                  The box shows up from Fed-x, smashed half in, the head had a bend in it, but luckiy not broke. It straightened out okay. Product is good, shipping bad!
