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.
