Woops I meant Master Cast not Super Hoops.
It must be very ringy now I guess? They're resonant to begin with so I assume yours will be extra...
Do the T-rod flange bits on those hoops feel solid? They look like they are simply welded in place around the bottom edge of the hoop. I'd be concerned about a cantilever-loaded weld like that when cranking a snare head up.
that's what my ultracast had when i got it, the hoops were bent at the screws levels and impossible to crank. i figure they can't support higher tuning in the long run. at the end i replaced em with worldmax black nickel.

Matt, I really like how the shell came out. I'm not a big fan of the hoops however. I'm surprised you went with an 8 lug snare. Was it because of weight? Certainly two tube lugs and four tension rods couldn't add that much weight. This VK drum was advertised in Modern Drummer a couple of months ago. It's all titanium; shell, lugs, hoops, tension rods. I really like it, but I just can't wrap myself around those hoops.
