Default 12" Snare Side Heads

Howdy Yall, it's been a while since I've been around. I'm finally getting serious about building myself a nice compact bop kit. I've got an excel spreadsheet with all the parts I'm going to need, prices, sources, and all that. There is, however, one thing that I cant seem to find. I want a 12" Snare drum, but I can't for the life of me find a decent 12" Snare Side hoop. Ideally it would be Pearl and Die Cast, because that's what the rest of the drums are, but if it ends up being something else (high quality please, or like a Pearl Superhoop), that would be ok too. I know that Pearl builds a 12" Snare, so I'm not sure why they wouldn't sell hoops for it, but I can't for the life of me find them.

As always, all assistance appreciated!

-Robbo

Well before we can really recommend where to get them you need to let us know how many lugs you play on having on your snare? I'm assuming 8? Maybe 6?

Search google for 12" Triple Flanged Hoops

And I found this...

Well, it would be a 6 lug. Also, make sure to note that I'm looking for the Snare Side head, with the little holes for the snares to go through. Thanks for the help.

It's not Pearl, but I've heard good things from builders that buy from them, they have what you're looking for, and they've got good prices.

But wait! That company has a minimum order of $50 to buy anything from their site! Any other ideas, folks?

drummaker.com - has Noble and Cooley (12", 6 lug) or generic cast snare hoops.

http://www.buy-safe.net/1-800-NEW-DR...ie%20hoop&-new

They also have triple flanged if you search around a little.

Oops. Sorry, didn't see that.

Ok, finally found it at Drumfoundry.com. Unfortunately they don't want to take my credit card... Ah well, I'll make it work.
