Great Tension Hoops

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..

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.

12" Grooved Banjo Hoop

Grooved Hoop No.0236 Described as "for a 12"Diameter Banjo Rim". The Hoop measures EXACTLY 12" and sits perfectly on top of my 12" Orpheum rim.

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.

Grooved Tension Hoop

I build approximately 100 instruments a year and use Stew Mac tension hoops. Shipping is prompt and quick - about two days for me. Occasionally I have had a problem with the chrome plating flaking off in a spot or two and, each time, I have only to call and a replacement is sent immediately along with return postage for the defective hoop. This a dependable source for good quality hoops and good service.
