Can someone tell me if the bass drum hoops (also) made of poplar or maple?

Animal,

They are poplar. However, if you want nicer glossy black maple hoops, you can spend about $120 and use a pair of the the 16" Pearl Competitor series 1.5" black marching bass drum replacement hoops. They are all maple and lacquered all around so they would really be a classy looking upgrade.

I've used them to replace damaged Masterworks hoops when I've had black kits, and you can't tell the difference.

MM :)
