A "client" of mine wants to have a snaredrum made with die-cast hoops, and preferably, the lowest one i can find, so, I am wondering, are there any notable height differences between die-cast hoops? (tama,pearl,yamaha,gibraltar,...)

Thanks in advance,

Ddgf ;)

They are all really going to extend about the same above the edge. Pearl LOOKS taller but just because of the slope on them. Not sure any would really make a difference.

Maybe recommend a batter head that sits lower? I've heard some Aquarian snare heads are taller than other brands... and since the ring sits lower, the hoop can sit lower too :)
