Stevens Stompers® Taps were designed by cloggers for cloggers. So, of course we really wanted to build a tap with great sound
Made from steel, Stevens Stompers® Taps have a snappy, musical sound. In fact, we like to call them musical instruments for your feet.
Buy them for SOUND………Love Them for STRENGTH. As one of our customers said: The sound is “able to reach the top of the stadium”.
Big, musical sound – – that is what you get with Stevens Stompers® . These outstanding percussive qualities are why more cloggers choose our taps for practice, performance and competition than any others.
Clogging taps were formerly made from cast aluminum. Some still are. Aluminum will crack under the heavy impact of clogging. Steel will NOT crack because steel is stronger than aluminum. Steel taps can be thinner and fit more comfortably on your shoes. Steel also means improved durability on all kinds of dance surfaces. Steel taps stand up much better on abrasive surfaces like concrete and asphalt. In fact, steel taps outlast aluminum taps about two-to-one, under these difficult dance conditions.
Several years ago, a few customers in coastal areas indicated that they experienced flaking and slight rusting of their taps, due to humidity. We worked with our platers to prevent this. Now, Stevens Stompers® sport a new shine. With a stronger bond to the steel this new plating material will adhere better and work to eliminate any flaking and rusting.
Stevens Stompers® come in 2 basic styles. Buck Taps® have a flange around the front of the toe. The flange provides tap sound when touching the tip of the shoe on the floor, and helps protect the tip of the shoe from wear. Regular, or non-Buck Taps, do not have a flange. They Fit entirely under the shoe and work well for shoes with a more rounded toe style. See a picture of the difference between Buck and Regular Taps.
