Unglued Counterhoops for 14" - 18" drum shell
We steam bend and carefully dimension our one-ply counterhoops here at our Vermont shop using local hard maple. This listing is for counterhoop material that is bent and scarfed to diameter size but left unglued.
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 these unglued counterhoops to fit and glue the counterhoop yourself on your shell. Order one diameter inch up if you shell is significantly off full inch diameter - contact us with questions if you are unsure, or if you need a size not listed.
The dimensions of these standard 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.
