Lug Casing

  • Zinc alloy lug casings with reinforced walls and webbing provide superior strength for high-tension tuning.

Claw Hook

  • Steel construction in a solid rib design of the claw hooks ensures shape retention while distributing tension over a wider area of the hoop, eliminating excess stress.

Nylon and Steel Washers

  • Nylon and steel washers on the tension rods allow smooth tuning at high tension.
