Default die cast hoops

Does it really matter if a die-cast hoop is made for a snare or a tom...?

The hoops will fit the tom batter and reso sides and a snare batter side .....the snare side will need to have the sections cut out for the snare wires though.

What's the sound difference between die cast and flanged hoops on the toms?

I have die cast hoops on one snare drum only, so my experience with them is limited.

Check this thread for more info than I can provide. http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...die+cast+hoops

The Gazten video in post 25 is useful too.

how do you guys think brass die cast (ludwig) hoops would look/sound on my LM402? (you can view it here: http://drummerworld.com/forums/showt...t=my+beautiful) What difference in the sound would brass die cast hoops make opposed to chrome die cast hoops?

I've used 2.3's, die cast, and Ayotte and Yamaha type wood hoops on snare drums and own a kit with die casts. The 2.3's are warmer and have better resonance than die casts, but they have a wimpy rim click/shot and they get detuned easier. Because die casts are solid heavy chunks of zinc, they are super rigid and can sound in tune with a few loose lugs, but damage the tone of the drum. The rim clicks/shots are out of this world though, so for me, the die casts are a better choice. Still, wood hoops are my definite favorites. They have the incredible rim click/shot sound of die casts, but better, and are even more resonant than flanged hoops. The Ayotte ones are great, but impractical. The Yamaha type hoops work just as well, is easier to replace, and costs less. I've been using the same pair of Gibraltar hoops on my main snare for over a year and they're in near-perfect condition. Even with the amount of rimshots I play, they're almost dent free and haven't chipped at all.

Im using alu die-cast's on all my toms and snares (on the 10'' only batter side and on the snare zinc on top) and I'm in love with these hoops.

it makes the shell feel more rigid to imo.
