HOOPLUG: the first universal system turning your acoustic drum into a matrioska one without unscrewing the tension rods.

Hooplug rises out of every drummer’s necessity: making the drum carrying easier without compromising the sound performance. In fact, its size, its weight and the lack of flexibility of the drum make its transport very problematic.

GOAL

We wanted to realize a plug’n’play system for the dismantling of the drum skins that was easily applicable on as many as possible models considering different dimensions, the number of tension rods, materials and the type of drumhead.

IDEA

So, we designed an anchorage system of the device which guarantees the right stability without excessive interventions on the instrument and, most importantly, without the alteration of the sound performance allowing a tuning range that results satisfying even for the most experienced user.

DESIGN

The design of the device aimed to the realization of non-obstructive tool carrying out its function as an accessory.

With Hooplug you can get an expandable drumshell, making the tuning of the drum skin separate from the drum.

The switching drum skin procedure is very complex by default. But, by using Hooplug, you can put on/take apart a drum skin from the drum in a few seconds. All you need to do is to have a spare kit with tuned drumheads so that you can replace them anytime you need to, for example while on stage during a live perfomance, and the audience would not notice anything.
