ADD ON - Spiral Flesh hoop
A Spiral Wound Flesh Hoop may be added to your head (any rim size) - for a small addional charge.
Wrapped hoops were traditionally found on some high-end, turn-of-the-century (circa 1890-1900), classic banjos.
Made utilizing a fiber wrapping around a 1/8" round-section brass wire hoop. They look great and improve the grip of the hide around the wire. Spiral wrapped hoops provide an irregular surface for more friction therby eliminating the sharp edges of a square hoop (which can sometimes cut a hide if not properly "eased").
