Depends on the drum, & also the structure of the hoops. For example, there's a very big difference between thick ply hoops (that are effectively sonically dead), & segmented or steam bent single ply wood hoops.OK, sorry hoops.
Perhaps I was not clear, not the appearance, but the sonic difference, how they influence the sound of the drum?
Please send my fondest regards to one of my favorite nuttersAndy, follow up question for you.
When people talk about the focusing qualities of Die-cast hoops is that just industry term for reducing overtones or is focusing the sound something entirely different?
About to take all the parts I ordered to our friend Kevin to for him to start on my custom snare build. Sooo excited!
What is the shell construction & wood species?So I found a cheap gretsch catalina avalon snare 14"x6" all the right dimensions for the wood hoops and the right price. I plan on stripping the wrap and finnishing the shell in a darker wood color. Any thoughts on how this will sound?
Ps ill prob put my dw mag throwoff on it and either keep its 20 strand wire or use my 30 strand puresound
