Default Aitwood Andersen (good source for cheap wood hoops) has closed their doors...........

Greetings,

I learned about Aitwood Andersen from this very forum and I know many of you used them in the past. A great source for very affordably priced and good quality wood bass drum hoops (like a 20" for $18!).

I placed an order for four wood hoops a few weeks ago and hadn't heard anything, so I reached out to them via email and I was told that they are now "Brooks Architectual Products" and if the order involved drum hoops or shells to contact Keller directly.

Well, considering that basically EVERYONE gets everything from Keller, there goes our "secret" source for affordable wood hoops. Bummer!

The Aitwood Andersen website is still fully functional for now.

Bummer.... I bought several hoops from them over the years, probably have a refurbished set or two still today with them on them.
