Snare (Bottom) Counterhoop for Snare Drum WITH NO 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. 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.
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.
