what is meant by the term "triple flanged" when referring to drum hoops? are there single and double flanged hoops too? what about quadruple flanged? would that be even better?
I guess it's because it just not necessary with the diecast hoops. And yeah it means the three flanges, or folds in the metal, basically.so i guess "triple" refers to the degree of flanging done. is that right?
i'm familiar with die cast hoops, but i wonder why they're never flanged? you'd think that would be a good thing. maybe it's because if they were flanged you wouldn't be able to get them out the mold.
That's it exactly!There are three places that the hoop is flanged. One, it is bent over on top to keep from chopping up sticks. The second one is a horizontal bend so that the hoop covers the top of the ring on the outside of the head and so pressure can be applied to the hoop on the head when cranking the tension rods. The third bend is a downward one that covers the hoop from being seen. Purely cosmetic.
Die-cast hoops are just that, they're cast into their final shape, while flanged hoops are bent into shape, which is where the "flanged" comes in.I guess it's because it just not necessary with the diecast hoops. And yeah it means the three flanges, or folds in the metal, basically.
Me twice. The "sticksaver" is great. I've equiped my 12, 13, 16 Rogers toms with those.I'm personally a fan of the vintage Slingerland "stick-saver" hoops, where the top of the hoop isn't flanged outward at a sharp angle, but rather rounds itself inward a little.
