do you think it might glue/clamp ?

if not then Keller do some replacement hoops with square (not bevelled) edges in various depths (pretty cheap too) http://billyblastdrums.easystorecrea...oop-detail.htm

get them sprayed to suit......

don't want to hijack your thread but I'm after some RC claws and T-rods - any ideas ?

oh...i guess i could try to glue/clamp the bugger..

still feeling sick about the discovery tho'.

maybe a little feaky about it..

i did find some weird drum parts on ebay that i needed..

people love destroying a perfectly good drum for the bass drum claws..

Hate to say it, But i had 2 RC Kick Drums (22" x 18", 20" x 16"), and also a Oak Custom 22" x 16" that have all cracked on the Beater side.. Still to this day don't know why?? All kicks were about a year old.

Must be a common fault.. A friend of mine has the same on his Recording Custom..

They all cracked on the join.

They were always transported in hard cases, and always looked after.. But all cracked.. I never chased it with Yamaha, as i had them fixed, and couldn't wait for new Hoops, as they needed the old hoops, and i'm always using the kits on sessions and gigs..

I wood glued the hoops (find the strongest wood glue you can get), and put some Fibre Glass/Resin tape over it on both sides, then put it where the Kick Pedal attaches. It's tougher than the original joint, and also protects the wood, so you don't need the rubber over the hoops.

Kind of looks like it's meant to be there too.

Just a thought, hope it helps, cheers WannaB..

I always replace my wood hoops with metal hoops. I do it mostly because I like how it looks, but now I learn it's a good idea as well!

BTW, none of my hoops will fit your drum.
