Default Re: 3.0mm hoops anyone?

I looked at them but didn't try them. I am happy with 2.3mm hoops that I added to both of my Ludwig kits.
3.0mm hoops are supposed to be close to die cast in sound and feel for much less cost.
A flanged hoop will never be as dead as a cast hoop. Thats just the nature of hoop construction.
A flanged hoop will ring more.

Going from 1.6mm to 2.3mm hoops made a difference in my Club Date and my Keystone kits. It mellowed out the drums a bit. A very minor change from the 1.6mm.
I used the Slungerland Stick Saver replica 2.3mm flanged hoops on my Club Date SE kit. Just for something a little different.
I kind of like old drums:)
