Whole Lotta Hoops
By Salman Haqqi Published February 23, 2010
Peace Musical is adding new drum hoops to its already extensive line of drum hardware and accessories. Laminated maple hoops, previously only available for 14” snare drums, are now available in 12” and 13” diameters. Construction is 9-ply, and hoops are lacquered in a gloss natural finish. Likewise, zinc die-cast hoops are now available for 10”, 12”, 13”, and 16” drums. Joining the 14” batter and snare side die-cast sizes previously available in the line, the heavy-duty rims are offered in three finishes: traditional chrome finish, brushed black nickel, or brushed old copper – a radiantly dark and stunning new finish that imparts an antique look to the hardware. Brushed black nickel finish and brushed old copper finish are also available on all of Peace’s triple-flanged 2.3mm hoops as a special order.
