Characteristics of Drum Hoops

When choosing a new drum the hoops really are a major factor to take into account and each hoop will work much differently with various shell materials and thicknesses. When customers visit the Tee Drums showroom/studio, we take time out to go through various shell thicknesses and materials and then demonstrate the difference In sound that the hoops will make. Tee Drums shells are either vertical grain or half and half vertical/horizontal construction which have slightly different characteristics to the most common and what seems to be the industry standard snare shell, a Maple 8-10 ply, difference being that our full vertical or half & half vertical/horizontal will be a little dryer than a full horizontal grain which will resonate much more.

Introducing the new Jazz Snare Drums, which are warm in sounding with great projection. Snare drums are finished in a high gloss Oak Burr, Walnut Burr or Elm Burr. (profile picture is Oak Burr)
The shell is constructed with a vertical grain Birch, which vibrates along the grain from top to bottom head nearly 4 times faster than a horizontal grain shell. This also leads to a warmer and deeper tone. Tee Drums shells are hand crafted by Alan Tocknell who has been building and supplying drum shells to custom drum companies for over 10 years.
