    Default Hoop upgrade

    I want to upgrade my hoops but found out there are no Pearl 6-lug superhoops for a 16" FT. Why would you make a line of drums without having a way to upgrade them? Any suggestions what I can use in place of this out of round hoop?
    What is life without drums???

    They don’t make it an option because they want you to upgrade your whole kit. You could just get another 1.6mm hoop or get a generic 2.3mm hoop from Drum Factory Direct, Drummaker.com, etc.

    I actually took this route myself for what I thought was a warped rim. Long story short the rim wasn't as bad as I thought but it was clear to see the aftermarket option was just better quality. I recommend it.
