hi. i'm a complete beginner at the banjo and need to replace the head of my banjo but i have no idea what the head height is. could someone tell me how i find this out??
i found this answer recently

" There are three head heights Hi are for arch top /raised head banjos, med for tension hoop 9/16", low for tension hoops 1/2"

but i don't understand what these numbers mean.
Please explain.
