Single Ply, Steam Bent Solid Maple Snare Drum Counterhoops

We dimension cut and steam bend of solid one ply hard maple counterhoops from local Vermont trees. You can choose unglued counterhoops to form to your shell yourself, or standard diameter counterhoops with or without rope holes drilled.

The dimensions of these standard batter and snare counterhoops is 1 7/8" high x 3/8" thick; other dimensions can be made by custom order. If you are using rope hoops or rod claws be sure to look closely at the thickness of the hoop you need and let us know if you need a custom size or have any questions about our standard sizes.

If you are ordering a snare side counterhoop, let us know what type of snare strainer you are using so that the proper gates can be cut in the hoop. 

Many times an antique or vintage drum will need to have the counterhoop formed directly on the shell because the shell is out of round or of an unusual diameter. You can send the shell (or the entire drum) to us to have the counterhoop sized. But if you feel comfortable taking on the project, you can purchase unglued counterhoops to fit and glue the counterhoop yourself on your shell.
