Reinforcement rings are added plies of wood at the top and bottom of the shell where the bearing edges are..they are appoximately 1"-1.5" in height...they were originally used back in the old days for shell strength (and also provided a bit of muted/mellower tone)..nowadays they are used in drums to kinda get a little bit of that vintage tone...
