Choosing the right size banjo head

Low, Medium and High Crown Head Sizes Available

Measure your banjo for the correct head diameter

Your banjo's rim may be slightly out of round, so take at least three diameter measurements at different points on the outside of the banjo's tone ring or rim top. Use the average diameter to the nearest 1/16" to order the correct size.

Most modern banjos use an 11"-diameter head. Modern makers of "old-time" open-back banjos usually use 11" (and sometimes 12") heads. Vintage banjos, (antique banjos from the early 1900's) however, may have a range of rim diameters from 10" to 12".

How to choose the correct crown height

Crown height is measured by the vertical distance from the top of tension hoop (metal ring that goes around the head) to the top surface of the head.

Banjo Head Crown Height
High Crown 1/2 inch
Med Crown 7/16 inch
Low Crown 3/8 inch

Banjos with a heavier flathead tone ring use a medium or high crown head. A banjo with an Archtop tone ring requires a low crown head.

If you are not sure what size crown, get a medium, that is the most common. 11 inch is also the most common and what is used on the vast majority of banjos.
