With one foot in the past, yet both eyes focused on the future, we've combined yesterday's classic look and sound of wood hoops with both our 100% Maple Custom Series and our 100% Birch Recording Series drums. Our wood hoops feature 12-ply, cross laminated, hard rock maple with a low profile design that offers drummers a comfortable, consistent playing angle that is similar to most metal hoop drums. Providing a warmer and more resonant sound than metal hoops, you can combine our wood hoops with our Custom Series shells for the ultimate in warm vintage tones or choose our Recording Series shells with their brighter, more aggressive sound which lend themselves nicely to the added warmth of our wood hoops. Either way, you have a beautifully classic yet modern drum kit, rich in musical qualities that will suit whatever style of music you play. Available on 8" to 18" drums.
Wood hoops are fragile and not recommended on snare drums for heavy hitters. Consider it like a drum stick, it WILL wear out. How long it lasts depends on how hard and often you hit it (breakage is not covered under warranty).
