Hi Bill,

Have you tried Stewart MacDonald? I believe they have heads in 1/16 inch
increments, but maybe only in frosted, I don't remember for sure.

Another place, though they don't make them, but they often have odd sizes in
stock, is McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, CA.

I have a friend here who has had some success buying the Mylar in the desired
thickness and finish, and attaching it to the original hoop/ring from an old

Good Luck.
