Default Custom Wood Hoop Kit

I posted a pic of my kit somewhere here and got a few requests to post more pics of the kit and specs, so here it is....

Bearing Edge custom wood hoop kit in maple finish:



Driver's seat:



Those pics have a Tama bronze snare but the kit has a 13x8" wood hoop snare. There is an inside lining of African hardwood to boost the high frequencies:



An alternate setup including the 13x8" snare. Note the number of lugs on the 12" tom:



Close up, from the front:



Specs are:

20x17 Kick
10x8 Tom
12X8 Tom
15x13 Tom
13X8 Snare

All maple, wood hoop, maple finish sealed in Italian polyester (not lacquer).

Cymbals are Paiste 2002.

Looks very nice. I like the originality of the 15" tom and the 7 lug rack tom. Wouldn't be able to swing that one without wood hoops :).

Damn. That looks so good. Just wondering, (i have no knowledge of wood hoops) does the wood wear out, chip, crack, or anything?

Not this style of wood hoop. They're actually made of the next-size-up drum shell and are connected with claw-style lugs. It's highly unlikely these hoops would break even under vigorous playing. I was told by the mfg (Kevin) that they were indeed unbreakable and if for some reason they ever did break that they'd be replaced free of charge.

The wood hoops tend to slightly dampen the high-end overtones.

The snare is to die for. It's beatiful inside and and must sound like a dream. Why the clear head?

The only problem is Kevin is now out of business and unreachable..He was always.."eccentric"..to say the least...One of the brass clips snapped on my snare and I've had to have one manufactured....Hope you don't need one, or any part in the future..You'll need to have someone make you one-offs..

Unfortunately, a lot of people had trouble with Kevin, myself included. I could start a whole new topic on his business practices. But while he did what he did he made some nice looking and sounding kits.
