I'll measure it out, looks like they come in inch and a half and inch and 3/4 sizes.

Thanks again!
Well, I got two because I like the look, and I really think wood hoops make the bass drum sound better (could be hogwash depending on who you ask). On Ludwig standard bass drums, 1 3/4" wide is the size, but you could get away with 1 1/2" for the Breakbeats, that's what mine are. The drum doesn't have that subtle 'metallic' hum now (if you could hear it at all ;) Go for what you like, I'm not sure it makes a difference on a bass drum this small.
