    14” 8 lug brass plated die cast hoops

    Thanks - yes, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. DFD mentioned in my correspondence with them that the undersized die cast hoops they sell is a known issue and they do make that known on their site. They said that Remo are likely to have a better fit but I'm a Evans endorser so that's...

    14” 8 lug brass plated die cast hoops

    Thank you - yes, I really love how this turned out. I'm trying to do the same to the 5.5 x 14 I have in this same series. Hence the request trying to source brass plated 8 lug brass plated die cast hoops. Very hard to find! However, I will persist - lol.

    14” 8 lug brass plated die cast hoops

    Hello Ptrick - thanks for your response - yes, I tried the DrumFactoryDirect hoops - they're too tight. It's a problem DFD acknowledges. I have had correspondence with them where they mentioned that they were working with their supplier to try and address the undersized issue. Cheers -

    Pearl 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops

    It appears that Pearl is making these for 14” 10 hole drums for batter side and snare side. They also make a 14” 8 hole batter side but not 14” 8 hole snare side - too bad. I think these would be great on 8 lug snares! If possible, could you please ask Gene if they are thinking of adding the 14”...

    L-Rod Bar Arm with 12.7mm post and 1" down tube

    Yes - I think the Tama/Gibraltar combo could work, however, I was hoping to find an integrated item. If I can't find one, I may go the Gibraltar SC-SP and SC-LBL route. It gets a bit pricey purchasing the separate items. Here is the SC-SP...http://www.gibraltarhardware.com/product/sc-sp/
