Great Tension Hoops

(Customer's Reviews)

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


High Quality Tension Hoop

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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
