      Comments about Gibraltar Batter Side Wood Drum Hoop:

      Gibraltar wood snare hoops are the answer to my prayer for my vintage Yamaha Recording Custom birch snare drum. I tried conventional triple-flanged & die cast hoops to no avail. The wood hoop were my final resort. Deeper drum sound, clear side stick & ear piercing rim shots. I like how the batter hoop is 'notched' for throw off lever clearance. I highly recommend drummers to give wood snare hoops a try if all else fails on your snare sound.

        Comments about Gibraltar Batter Side Wood Drum Hoop:

        I ordered a batter side wood hoop for a snare drum after using one while subbing a show for a friend. Loved the sound and decided to try one on a 6 1/2x14 Gretsch Black Beauty. While the plastic bag it came in had a tag that read 'batter side', this was a snare side hoop with channels for snare strap or string to attach to the strainer mechanism. I can tell a difference on side stick--those channels break up the mass I enjoy so much when using as a batter hoop. I'd order another one (and move this one to the snare side) but after being sent the wrong item that was labeled incorrectly, I'm not sure I want to take the chance on getting the wrong hoop again. First time I've been displeased with an order from MF. Hard to recommend to anyone after being sent the wrong version of this item.

        Comments about Gibraltar Batter Side Wood Drum Hoop:

        I've been curious about a wooden hoop on my snare for years. Bought myself a bd gift. This hoop is beautifully constructed; tho it's made of plies, it appears more like a solid piece of wood. My snares are custom made segmented shells so they already sound awesome. This hoop adds a more cutting stickover sound, tho it's not as "wood blocky" as I expected. More clave sounding. it does offer a variety of "sweet" spots with different pitches and tone. The others in my band noticed it (!) and liked the sound. I am not a hard hitter, but after two sets there were visible indentations where I had hit rim shots. I was trying not to hit many, but the ones I did sounded incredible. A surprise there. Remains to be seen how long this hoop holds up under regular playing. I feel it's still a bargain compared to a Yammy. Note: items that generally snap on a metal hoop or mount under a tension screw likely won't fit. I had to mount my sennheiser 604 on the rack tom and hover it 5" over the snare. Also use a DDrum redshot trigger to control a BeatBug; had to mount that on the bottom of the snare and it doesn't work quite as well. Even so, I am excited by the hoop and look forward to using it regularly.

        incredible hoop

        By LudwigLB402

        Comments about Gibraltar Batter Side Wood Drum Hoop:

        This is a great wood hoop for your snare drum. I thought about buying a diecast hoop for my snare drum, but after looking into wood hoops I took the chance. This product is well made and looks great, it also has some of the benefits of a diecast hoop. It is very rigid wich helps with tuning and it also gives a powerfull rim shot, and great side stick tone that cuts through the mix. One thing that I really liked about this hoop is that it dried the drum out nicely...meaning SOME of the high pitched over tones were eliminated while focusing the tone of the shell, and at the same time adding some volume/projection/pop. I'm very excited with the improvements this hoop has made to the overall sound and presence of my snare...I love this product!
