Excellent quality as usual

By

Verified Buyer


I love the tension hoop. It and the brackets I bought work really well. I discovered that the original was of poor quality and not very true. So the replacement is much better than the original. Thanks Stew Mac. You have never let me down.

High quality hoop!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this tension hoop to replace the factory-installed one on a Deering Old Tyme Wonder. This model banjo has a frailing scoop, but for some reason the tension hoop supplied didn't have a groove in it, so the rim the hoop was right at the spot where I was playing in the scoop. Super annoying; made me not want to play the banjo and also I have even considered selling it because I just wasn't happy with the banjo. Well, the Stew Mac hoop fit perfectly (in fact, fit better than the factory hoop!) and that has really improved the overall look and playability of my banjo. No more thoughts of selling it, for sure. Thanks, StewMac for this quality product!

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

Verified Buyer


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

By

Verified Buyer


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.

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.
