Larry's comment was about making a slotted hoop. so I sat down and worked out a hoop that will accommodate using 6/8/10 or 12 lugs of my lugs.

It will closely resemble a cast hoop but instead of the typical "ears" where the tension rod goes thru , it would have a consistant perimeter without the ears.

The next step will to be figure out an adjustable strainer and butt plate should you all feel that the hoop is worth pursuing.

Thanks

How strong will it be for us who like to really crank our snares. The slot won't bend or give to the tension?
