A pair of revolutionary drum hoops for an instant upgrade to your snare.
The DW True Hoop is the result of of nearly a year-and-a-half Drum Workshop spent designing and perfecting this critical hardware. True Hoops are a major advancement in the relationship between bearing edge, drum head and counter hoop. As a drummer, you know how critical that relationship is to tuning and tone. This Batter Side True Hoop is just that, round and flat, and without the typical variations you often see around stamped holes. It even has an attractive new touch: a fully-rounded outer edge. 14"

Comments about DW 10 Lug True Hoop Batter and Snare Side Pair:
I bought these for a very old Pearl Brass Sensitone that I bought around 15-20 years ago. The purchase of the DW True Hoops was part of a project of bringing this drum back to life, and these hoops helped do exactly that for this snare. All I can say is WOW. This snare drum's sound is better than ever now, and tuning it up was easier than ever as well. I think a part of that is due to the Evans Level 360 heads (the only heads I'm willing to use now), but I think the hoops had the biggest impact.
The installation and tuning of the heads was a cinch. I barely had to make any adjustments for an even pitch and frequency between all the lugs (using my ears and my Tune-Bot). Before I did any tuning, the snare already had a fantastic sound. All I did at that point was, I installed and tuned up the snare side, and then I installed and tensioned up the batter side as evenly as I could until I had the overall pitch that I wanted. As I was testing for the overall pitch, I was amazed by the sound for not even tuning it yet. I could've stopped right as soon as I found the right overall pitch I was aiming for and gigged with it and it would've been just fine!
Then after tuning, it had an even better sound that really inspired me to play it. I don't remember this snare ever having a sound this good, but I also haven't used it in over 10 years and my tuning and head installing skills have improved quite a bit since then too. Still, it reminds me of the ease of using high-quality die-cast hoops, but with a better sound and tone. I love these DW True Hoops!! Now I want them on ALL of my drums!
Oh, and these are beautiful hoops too. The "dw True Hoop" logo that's molded into the hoops is a nice little touch that I enjoy looking at.

Used these hoops for my Ludwig Suprasonic Snare Drum, and it made the drum sturder, and stay's in tune better.
