OVERVIEW

A patented new drum hoop designed by the President and Founder of Safehoop Company, Rick Barrickman.

The Ahead S-Hoop has many advantages to offer every drummer no matter what level of player they may be. The S-Hoop is like a triple flange hoop except with a different design. From this new design came an overlying edge that turns in and bevels down towards the drum head covering the bearing edge and leaving plenty of room for different tuning tensions. The added steel density made the hoop more rigid like a die-cast hoop therefore giving it the consistent tuning characterisitcs of a die-cast hoop.

This new design also gives the S-Hoop a smoother playing surface for rim-shots and side stick creating less impact to the hands and wrist. The patented design allows the toms to sing more and give's the snare a fatter sound than hoops of previous design.

    Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Drum Hoop:

    Replaced stock batter hoop....The S Hoop has the rigidness of a die cast hoop...protects the bearing edge..Cross stick has a fatter sound..Drum sticks don't get torn up from rim shots....The S Hoop made a huge difference in how good my Yamaha Stage Custom snare sounds..Like a whole new drum......Oh yes easier to tune..............Great product and priced right!!

      Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Drum Hoop:

      I have been playing for over 48 years and used Slingerland style stick saver rims on my drums. When I found these and tried them I knew right then these rims were a perfect replacement for the Slingerlands of yesteryear! Excellent quality and pricing! I really don't think you may find a better value than these!

        Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Drum Hoop:

        Ahead has done a fine job of producing a nice rim that keeps your mute ring on as well as looks great on your snare I've noticed less chips from my drumsticks overall the sound seems good I recommend try it and see.

            Love these. First got just one for my snare, and really loved it, so I equipped my whole set. I really do believe it warms the tone and seemed to make tuning easier. My pops is a pro and also equipped all his snares...the cross stick sounds SO much better on all snares. Gavin Harrison uses them, so I had to give 'em a shot! The fact that it protects the bearing edge is just a bonus (especially when the niece or nephew get on the set!)

              Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Drum Hoop:

              If you prefer die-cast hoops you should give these a try. They are somewhat lighter and much less expensive, but offer similar benefits to the sound of your drums. They also protect your drum's bearing edge. They help me keep my drums in tune and increase their sustain.
