As you may have read, I recently purchased a Metallic Gold kit with a 20" bass drum.
Unfortunately, it only came with one hoop. Is there anyone out there with a lead on a
vintage Imperialstar 20" bass drum hoop. Any color inlay will do.

I also remember reading a thread on the Forum about a member having a 22" or 24"
hoop cut down to 20" and welded. I can't seem to find that thread. Any help with
either lead would be very helpful.

Here is another picture of my 20" Metallic Gold bass drum all cleaned up.

So I purchased a 20" hoop from feebay on the 23rd and it just arrived today.
There is a bit of rust on the inside grooves and some light rust on the outside.
The inlay is missing, which isn't a big deal. $50 shipped is a decent price
considering the rarity of finding a 20" hoop. I'll post more pics when it is all
cleaned up and on the kick.
