Default Quality die-cast hoops?

In anticipation of my SQ2, i'm thinking about buying die-cast hoops for the whole kit.
My problem is the floor tom is 15".
Anyone know where I can find 12, 13, and 15" die cast hoops? (preferably NOT from Taiwan...?)
I will try and call Noble and Cooley tomorrow.

The correct answer to this question is "Dont use diecast hoops on an SQ2!" - If it were necessary, Sonor would have already implemented them.

Trust me when I say your kit will have all the power and projection itll ever need, as is.

Try this http://www.egodrumsupply.com/diecast.html

As far as I know, they make their own hoops. They're also very cheap.

...Hateplow.

My advice to you would be to find a Premier dealer and see if you can order their die cast hoops.



This is probably the best pic that I have showing the Premier die cast hoops. I love them, and have them on both of my wmp kits. My 12, and 16" hoops are probably thirty years old, and the chrome is absolutely flawless. Premier has long been reknown for their chrome. It is bullet proof. The last time I ordered hoops was two years ago, and I was able to get them with out having to wait tooo long.

They are a little different than normal die cast hoops, they have a lower rounded profile and they do not eat sticks as bad.

Good luck with your search.

Barry

Hmmmm...I believe you. You obviously know your Sonor...
originally I just wanted them for my 13" heavy birch snare, which SQ2 doesn't offer. I'll just stick with new snare hoops, thanks!

Thanks for all your replies!
