Check the website of ST-drums in gemany, they sell many strange sized heads.
Yes, it's rather unfortunate. Maybe I can sell it for a bit less than I paid for it since it's unused, but open.
Just checked the site, and they don't seem to have any 19-ish" drumheads. They do have others like 21" and 17", though. Looks like I'll probably have to go the custom calf route! Thanks for the suggestion.

There's something oddly attractive about this drum, isn't there?
Yes, I have all the other parts - just missing part of a muffler and one head.
I'll probably soak all of the parts in vinegar in order to clean and de-rust them, but then polish them very minimally... Just enough to protect the metal. I enjoy drums that show their age, too!

I'll probably go the calf route, but I'll keep this site bookmarked just in case.
