Looking for an exciting and affordable way to improve the sound and performance of your acoustic drums? Angel Hoops (Hungary) replace any standard batter or reso side hoop and impart tonal characteristics that differ from triple flanged or diecast hoops. They are designed like single flanged hoops but instead of clips, they use ears that are welded to the sides that do not interfere with your rimshots. Angel Hoops are available in both stainless steel and iron in different thicknesses to suit the needs of all drummers. Lighter options provide an airy, vintage sound while heavier options add focus and control but with more openness than diecast.
