All Finished and Set Up!
The Remo underside frosted 10 15/16" Head I replaced is on the right behind the Vega.
I sanded the top where my fingers slide when playing, to quiet the sound of rubbing. I used #320 sand paper. The small piece I used is shown bottom right on table.
See and Hear this Banjo before the Calf Skin Banjo Head was installed!

I let it settle in for a couple of days, then re-tightened it. I like the sound very much--it seems to me that more music is coming from the banjo now! There is louder finger rubbing noise now, but I don't mind it. I think it will get quieter after it's been played for awhile?
