Great Tension Hoops

By Kevin Fore from Galax ,VA

I have used 50+ of the grooved tension hoops and all have been perfect. Thanks for all the quality products.

High Quality Tension Hoop

These are high quality parts with great plating. I would have given them 5 stars if they were available without the little fingerboard scoop.

A Perfect fit

No issues at all installing this hoop on a neglected Gold Tone CC50RP. I replaced the hoop, the head, the hooks, and the nuts with StewMac products. It's now a far better instrument

Nice tension hoop but..

By Carl from Second Life banjo from Ulverton, Quebec, Canada
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, September 19, 2012


This is a well finished tension hoop,
plating is nice but the 1 7/8 inch notch for the neck is too narrow for many type of neck with a fingerboard wider than 1 3/4 inch. Cannot be use for 6 strings banjos or any wider necks at the heel. it should be like the vintage ones 2 1/4 inches wide notch to be usable for Old time banjos or fraling scooped fingerboard.

Fantastic groovedt tension hoops

The five star grooved tension hoops are fantastic quality and value. I have used them on a number of my banjos and find they give you that little bit of flexibility when aligning to the brackets. For me they work perfect on my new decaphonic rim.

Nice Parts

I was very happy with the quality and appearance of this grooved tension hoop. And the price was good too. Fast shipping. I give it a 9.
