    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, LUDWIG, TAMA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Yamaha and Dauz Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    4 Kits and 8 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    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.
