  • Adding mesh heads to pre-international hoops?

    hi there

    i've gotten hold of a 50s drumkit with pre-international hoops (ofcourse,- duh... )

    how would you go about adding new (mesh)heads to them?
    new heads are simply to big (about 1/4").

    Do you mean metric sizes? Thanks a great question. I know Remo used to make some metric size heads on a special order basis, you'll just have to check around with them, Evans and the Triggerhead people. I'd be curious to hear what they say.
    Drumkat Turbo 4.5, Emulator X3, Superior 2.1, Roland Fantom XR, DTXtreme III, SPD-20 etc.......

      well i've googled all i can - and simply cannot find an answer.

      new heads will easily fit into the hoop itself - but when attaching the hoop to the shell, it gets all skewed and won't fit properly, and there's always one tension rod that won't attach.

      so i guess either:
      a) simply buy new shiny hoops (i'm pretty much against this )
      b) or "carving" out the side of the hoop where the last tension rod is presenting a problem.

      an easier way?
      did i just answer my own questions?
