Louët has five different drumcarders: the Classic, Standard, Junior (or Roving), Elite and Elektrical drumcarder. They are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. The drums of the carders are 19 cm (7 1/2”) wide, except for the drum of the Junior (10 cm (4”) wide). In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louët carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes, except for the Elite drumcarder, are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
