Thanks for the replies. They now are making a Concept Maple kit in Bop Sizes, but the new line of Concept Maple finishes are just.............well.................awful!
Twisted Ivory, Satin Seafoam, Satin Pewter, Satin Olive or Satin Black? The black and pewter are boring and the others are just bad. They use to have really cool and sophisticated looking sparkle lacquer finishes and some nice natural wood finishes too. Plus, all the Concept Maple kits are now "Finish Ply" (aka wrapped, not lacquer). They all used to be lacquer finished. A huge downgrade, IMO.
I'm curious. How durable are the wood hoops? What happens if you hit the wooden hoop? Does it leave a dimple every time? Are rim shots possible with these without damaging the hoop? I love how they look. Reminds me of Levon Helm, RIP.
