Snare (Bottom) Counterhoop for Snare Drum WITH HOLES AND STANDARD GATES
We steam bend and carefully dimension our one-ply counterhoops here at our Vermont shop using local hard maple. This listing is for snare drum snare-side counterhoops made with holes and snare gates.
The dimensions of these standard snare-side counterhoops is 1 7/8" high x 3/8" thick; other dimensions can be made by custom order. The standard number of holes is 10, although a few of the listings show a choice of 8 or 10 on smaller drums. If you have an unusual number of holes or hole configuration, please contact us before ordering.
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 - those unglued hoops are listed separately.
