Default Bassdrum - hoop protection.

I know this an old thread, but I've got one question. Will putting these adhesive strips directly on the finish side of the hoop, as well as the wood side, cause any damage if I ever try to remove them? I bought some...and they aren't leaving any surface they come in contact with!...Extremely sticky.

Should I maybe put some masking tape under the adhesive strips..then put the strips over the tape?

Some bass pedals come with a rubber adhesive strip. You could honestly just do the same thing with some electrical tape. What I usually do is score a roll of electrical tape with a razor knife so it is many layers thick, then peel up the strip and cut it to length. Weather stripping would probably do the same thing. Either that or use a folded up paper towel.

If the hoop is metal it's going to get marked but not in the same way. Really either way, it's not going to damage the hoop structurally, it will just be a visual thing.

I simply drove to the hardware store and bought some thin rubber 1/8" strips. Then held them in place and installed the pedal over it and the hoop. It works great and I don't understand why so many player never do this. So many times I look to buy used kits that are sometimes worth $5.000.00 or more and are in mint condition except for the very chewed up bass hoop. Also on the older kits that are now discontinued the hoops cane no looker be bought for replacements so take care of your hoops. It will greatly at value to the kit in years to come.

Here is what I did when I first purchased my new DW's. Sure, it is overkill, but I was brand new, my kit was brand new, and I was a little obsessed about keeping them in nice condition. Now that I have been looking around for vintage drum kits, I see that what Sirwill is saying about value is absolutely true.

But, forget the value issue, chewed up bass hoops look like crap and I can see it, doesn't matter if anyone else is aware. Besides, is there any good reason to allow something like that to happen when it can easily be avoided?




As Fourstring suggests, most new drums come with some type of fix. What they provide new DW owners is a joke ... too thin and not substantial at all. So, I went out and purchased these before I clamped the metal teeth of the DP down. No regrets. They say "Felt," but really they are thick foam with a harder rubber outside coating, which provides a good grip for the teeth.

Also, look at the pic and you will see the over kill ... top and bottom strips used. Also, I overlapped them a bit outside of the edge of rim ... there is absolutely no contact with the pedal.

Anyway, hope this helps. Less than $5 fix and easily found at at most Home Depot or Lowes hardware stores. Joey
