    I'm sure those hoops would be great on any reference or mcx kit.

    If you don't like the sound Die Cast hoops give. Yes. Fat Tone hoops are not designed to be "Better" then Die Cast. It's simply a different style of hoop offering a different sound.

    I totally agree! The only advantage to the sticker is the placement of the slots on the snare side hoop. Some Pearl snares have the strainer in a different position, making it impossible to line up the hoop engraving with the shell badge. At least with the stickers, you can remove them and apply a new sticker in the correct location - OR just remove all the stickers like I am going to do once my Masterworks kit arrives.

    Also, seeing those STL lugs on the kick and toms make me so excited about seeing them in BLACK on my new MW kit!

    I would bet Mastercast are made with some hands on, while Superhoops and Fat Tone are made entirely by automated machines and one does the etching.

    Are you suggesting that MasterCast hoops are hand-made? Ok hand-made drums are one thing, but hand-made metal hoops are not something I care about...as ridiculous as the concept of hand-made diecast hoops is. If you're suggesting that the sticker is hand-applied.... who the hell cares? Hoops with "some hands on" would just be a complete waste of manpower. And even after all that, I still contend that SuperHoops and FatTone hoops look better.

    Yes, I meant a person puts the sticker on, though I really don't know. I've seen that show "How It's Made" a few thousand times and took a guess haha. I'm sure a machine could put it on just as well. Perhaps zinc does not take well to etching. I think the chrome is better on Mastercast than SuperHoops, in that it's very uniform and solid with less chance of variation or visual flaws. But the stickers...the stickers gotta go. haha. Fat Tone and SuperHoops for everybody! Have some rep!

    Rock Tour. Why? There's very little similarities between these two kits.
