Default Bearing edge?

Hi, I'm new to drumming, and have recently stumbled across these forums. Anyways, this is probably the dumbest question, but correct me if I am wrong...There is a different degree angle cut on one side of my inside kick drum hoop. This side goes against my drum head, right?

Thanks

Not a dumb question at all by forum standards...

The bearing edge is the part of the actual drum shell that touches the head. I'm not sure what you mean by a bearing edge on the hoop, since the hoop doesn't have a bearing edge (at least not one that I know of). The hoop is not part of the shell, but is what sits between the tension rods (lugs) and the drum head, and is what presses the head against the drum shell's bearing edge.

Thanks Matt. One edge of the actual hoop though, has a different degree cut than the opposite side. I guess this is what I was trying to ask haha. Does that different degree cut go against the kick drums head? Thanks again. As I said, I'm knew to drumming lol. I'll edit my original post

I don't know. I don't think mine have much of a difference. Maybe you should say what kind of set you have and post a picture. Someone here with the same set should be able to tell you.

The flat side of the hoop goes on the rim of the head, and the rounded part is in front.
