    Not trying to argue with you, I was just going by their website description.

    oh, no not being argumentative, I was just pointing out that there wasn't a great deal of difference between the drum sets we have described.

    Where did you find this information? I could stand corrected. But either way around, I guess its irrelevant when I think about it.

I also Just LOVE the sound of Simon Phillip's Bubinga/Maple shells, so I am hoping they will put two plies of Bubinga on the inside, four plies of Maple on the outside. I am getting fusion sizes since I like the feel of fusion sizes better, I figured Bubinga would help me regain some depth in the sound and give me that extra attack I want. That is what its known for after all. What do you think?
    Actually, for more attack, you would want to go with die-cast hoops. Superhoops will have slightly less attack, but will open up the sound of the drum to a certain degree. You can however offset this a small amount with sharp 45 degree bearing edges. Head selection will also play a part in the sound you're after.


    Good luck with your project, sounds interesting.

    Yes, but I want a more open sound. Attack can be gained through means other than the hoops, i.e. wood choice, head choice, tuning, and the bearing edges. But there is no way to make the drum seem more open once die cast hoops are thrown on there. It's a versatility thing.

    In post #13 I provided you with the link to that information but you must have missed it.

    diecast on batter, superhoops/fat tone on bottom? o0o0oh


    the difference that only .5 to 1mm provideds, could basically be compensated by some nice tuning and the right heads for ther right attack and resonance. thickness will only cause a minimal variation in fullness of tone. compared to a drastically thinner Sonor Delite/Prolite 4mm w/2mm rerings on toms and 6mm w/2mm rerings bassdrum.

    oh hey look at that! My bad. I have been very busy in my responses. Thus they are full of crappy things like capitalization mistakes and things. This is my last week of working three jobs though!

    I agree in the fullest. Like I said the only difference is a little glue and a couple millimeters. Nothing to fret over.
