I retrofitted a Premier Genista floor tom with the modern Premier interlocking memory locks (which are great), but now find the hoop collar is too wide to put the floor tom legs through. . Does anyone know of a brand of hoop that has a particularly narrow collar?

Two ideas - single flanged hoop? You'd have to use collar hooks, which might look kind of strange. The other approach, something I did with my RB Gretsch was to put some sort of gasket or spacer between the leg bracket and the shell. I used fiber washers over the nubs on the leg bracket which gave enough clearance so the leg wouldn't rub against the hoop.
