I bought a Pearl export 22" bass drum a while back. I have been modifying it a bit and decided to put the hoops on the glass table top i have to check if they are true. Turns out they are both bent like a banana.

Is there are method to make them flat again ? All i could think of was heating them with a blow torch in two places and trying to bend them back . May work but i'm not sure.

No need to drag out the torch. Just position some 2X4s under the low spots and use your hands and feet to manipulate them flat again. Not hard - I've done it several times.
