How would you say the S hoop would act as opposed to the 2.3 triple flange?
Thank you. I believe this shell was $230 shipped. Just contact Josh. Really good prices and build quality. He added the re-rings at no cost. I believe he has shells on ebay all the time too.
Concerning the throw-off, I believe it's just Ego Drum Supply
brand. It's a great throwoff, as you said, because it holds its tension in any position.
Edit: I found Josh's ebay store here.
It looks like the shells are cheaper than I thought. He also offers custom builds and layout/drilling. Great option for a DIY project.
Yes, the Ego is similar to the Trick throwoff.
That's a decent price for a stave shell. Great workmanship isn't free.
