Is there something common that could be employed for a drum skin or banjo face?
My near empty dogfood bag was noisy the other day when I moved it... I'll try it when I can figger an ez method to tension it over a hoop.
I suppose tyvek would be too soft???

Hey, Bug -- I couln't find anything about Meica; can you give us a little more info? As for Tyvek, I think it might be worth a try. Seems like it might be able to be glued around a round hoop or banjo pot fairly easily. Getting it tight enough might be tricky, though. I know that faux-calfskin drum and banjo heads are made with Tyvek glued to Mylar...
I went to your link and the meica roses pot funnel sounds GREAT!
Probably even better than I was hoping for.
....bbbut what IS this 'meica' stuff????
and where would I get some?
Is it something on the back shelf in a flower shoppe?
( I can hold up the fence pretty well but I ain't real smart ! :-) )
I discovered a new to me source!
A friend gave me the plastic domed container a pumpkin pie and a cake came in, from the market.
I'll cut out disks from them, fasten to a frame with epoxy, then try the heat method to tighten it up.
I'll post pics when I get back to that project!
