Tama hoop savers question
Tomorrow I am trading my Catalina Maples in for a Tama Orange Satin flame set and I bought some Tama hoop savers to try to protect the hoop of the bass as I tend to be OCD on stuff like that. Now I am curious just how I should apply them after I get the set home. Directly on the bass one top or bottom or both? Will the adhesive damage the hoop? Or should I apply it to the bass pedal and one side or both? Considering this set appears to be hard to come by, I really want to protect it as much as I can.

Instead of those drum manufacturer products, how about using some Dr. Scholl's moleskin pads instead? They are a little thick, pad really well, and can be removed without damaging the finish. And it's cheap! $5 for a roll, I think.

What we wound up doing to the bass is painters tape after using wood glue and clamps to attempt to sort of savage the wrap. Later on when I decide the head needs to be changed, hubby says he will do more work to the hoop.

I've been using duct tape. As for your application, I'd try putting one on the pedal with the adhesive facing up (that one goes on the bottom of the hoop) and putting the other on the bass hoop directly after you've seen where the clamp actually touches the hoop.

I apply them to both top and bottom. They work great. Depending on your pedal you might need two on the bottom. The adhesive has not been a problem.

Re: Tama hoop savers question
I just have a small square piece of medium-thick towel that I wrap around where the pedal clamps on he hoops. It wraps around the inside and outside of the hoop. You just hold it there and then clamp the pedal on over it. (Not going to pretend it was my idea....I read it here somewhere.)

Now the downside is that it's not like a permanent adhesive so you have to do it every time you set up/tear down. It can easily get lost, but I keep it in my bass drum bag and have another spare square in my "extra's". (Can you spare a square....Seinfeld reference...)
