    [..YouTube..] How much do s-hoops usually run? Say I want to outfit the top of a 13″snare, a 10″ tom and a 14″ floor tom.

  3. [..YouTube..] I’m pretty sure they’re fairly inexpensive. A little more than a typical triple flanged and for sure less than die cast, but I don’t know an actual number for ya. I’d venture a guess around sixty bucks or a little more?

  4. [..YouTube..] for those 3 drums total???

  5. Luuk Meijwaard says:

  6. [..YouTube..] what snare is that?

  8. [..YouTube..] i like the way you edit your vids with the captions & stuff

  10. [..YouTube..] Ya dude, they’re probably about twenty bucks each or a little more? Again I really don’t know, I’m just guessing.

  11. [..YouTube..] 10×4.25 Sonor SQ2 Birch Thin with Ebony high gloss outside and Ebony semi gloss inside.

  12. [..YouTube..] Thanks bro 🙂 They’re all from Final Cut Pro, except the website tag thing, I did that in a quick photoshop.

    To be honest, I’m sure I could make it in FCP but I knew how to do it real quick in Photoshop so I just did that instead vs trying to figure it out, download the font again and all that crap haha

  13. [..YouTube..] Oooh, arlgiht, thanks!
    It sounds awesome!!

  14. Raman Sambhi says:

    Oooh, arlgiht, thanks! It sounds awesome!!

  15. [..YouTube..] Haha, thats an SQ2 bro. U could strap a 1972 ford fairmont hubcap to it, and it’d still sound good.

  16. Rougarou13 says:

    [..YouTube..] Do they make a 12 lug version of that? It sounds fantastic!

    DAMN, makes it really worth considering getting them!

  40. [..YouTube..] hells yeah do it! 😀

  41. geoff1424 says:

    [..YouTube..] holy hell these hoops are amazing, does it make a difference if you have both resonant and batter s hoops or just batter?

  42. Rarrrrrr says:

    both resonant and batter s hoops or just batter?

  43. [..YouTube..] I know right! I love them. I haven’t tried top/bottom yet. I do have a batter/reso snare set for a 14-10 but I haven’t decided what snare I want to try it on first.

    Honestly, I bought the bottom one cause I didn’t want die cast bottom with an S-Hoop top, the look would bother me big time. I’ll report on the sound difference. 😀

    [..YouTube..] that sound and ring the hoops gave were amazing, where can i buy these? i googled it and there a tough find

  46. Rarrrrrr says:

    googled it and there a tough find

  47. [..YouTube..] Well also note, the drum with S-Hoops on in the video never ended up tuned quite as high as before. So that will add some ring, plus I took the moongel off. It can add a little sustain but it’s minimal.

    I’m not honestly sure, Memphis drum shop maybe?

  48. geoff1424 says:

    [..YouTube..] yeah i called memphis they didnt carry them, ill call around and get some, but man that ring and sustain is exactly what ive been looking for, moon gel can suck my cak once i get my paws on some s hoops!

  49. [..YouTube..] really!? crazy, hmm, maybe there’s an online retailer for it. Google search +buy +”S-Hoops” +US

  50. [..YouTube..] Wow wow wait a second, wheres my blast friendly vid! Come on man, I know you can do it, if its to linear of drumming for you then spice that shit up. For fuck sakes your Aaron motha fucka Edgar!

  51. [..YouTube..] *you’re

  52. [..YouTube..] hey hey now, I never said I couldn’t 😛 Actually, the reason I haven’t done videos in a week or two is that my studio is empty. Getting some renos done, should be back up and running soon, and most likely the kit will be completely different. I tore it apart right down to the rack. There’s nothing there 😀

  53. [..YouTube..] a baby snare! :))

  54. [..YouTube..] a baby snare! :))

  55. Jefyzz says:

    [..YouTube..] Might be a stupid question, but does the inner veneer affect the sound of a drum?

  57. [..YouTube..] I never said you couldn’t man! You’re fucking awsome, I have been watching your vids for awhile, and know perfectly well that you can blast. You play far more complex beats on almost all of your uplouds

  59. [..YouTube..] Also i posted a terrible video of me playing, recorded with my phone. Uploaded it so people would shut up with the let’s see your video comments. I’m not that good, but I love the drums!

  60. geoff1424 says:

    [..YouTube..] S HOOPS ARE AMAZING, I JUST GOT TWO OF THEM!!!!

  67. aaronedgardrum says:

  68. [..YouTube..] 1 of 2 Opinions are divided on that. Technically the inner most ply should have the most affect on the sound and there are people that claim the Designer Five Star Maple Lights (with ebony inside) sounded much better than the regular ML’s.

  70. [..YouTube..] 2 of 2 My only experience close to a direct comparison is from a 13×5 S-Classix (birch thin) and a 13×4.25 SQ2 Birch Thin snare with ebony inside. On the SQ2 I can get an even warmer sound and it almost sounds bigger than the Classix. The veneer isn’t the only contributing factor, but I believe it definitely played a role in the sound. I usually have ordered ebony inside almost all my SQ2’s since then.

  79. geoff1424 says:

  80. [..YouTube..] Damn right! I put them on both of my SQ2 kits. Ridiculous.

    [..YouTube..] I love seeing all of this positive feedback about S-Hoops. Rick Barrickman was the owner/inventor of these awesome hoops. He was my finace for years and my soul mate. Sadly this October will mark the 5 year anniversary of his death. Where are you guys buying the hoops these days?

  94. momnky says:

    [..YouTube..] Against Ricky’s wishes his brother snatched the hoops from under me (since we were not officially married), and last I heard he sold them to BigBangDistribution and nothing ever really happened with them from there. Sad that his brother would let his dream die, too, but it makes me smile to see all the wonderful things people are still saying about his hoop. Keep rocking everybody! ~Mollie Schwab

  101. [..YouTube..] Hey Mollie! I didn’t realize that he had passed away 🙁 I’m very sorry to hear that, I absolutely love these things. I’m one of the artists through Big Bang Distribution for S-Hoops.

    As for your next comment with nothing really happening with them, they are advancing the product line a little, adding new sizes and what not. Most recently a 12″ 8 lug.

    Very cool to talk to you!

    “pooched” that’s such a great word

  116. mdrumt says:

    These look great! I could forsee more stick dust building up underneath these things?

  117. DDrummr41 says:

    You know what would be really cool? I know you don’t use them, but it would be awesome if you could take a tom, and show the difference between metal hoops, and wood claw hoops.. That would be the coolest thing ever.

  118. aaronedgardrum says:

    lmao yeah I love it!

  119. aaronedgardrum says:

    haha yes that definitely would happen for sure 😛 I like how they look too!

  120. aaronedgardrum says:

    That WOULD be really cool! If I had access to some of those right now, I’d totally do it. 🙂

  121. David McCoy says:

    Did you do marching band back in the day?

  122. aaronedgardrum says:

    Negative. There wasn’t much offered in that line where I live.

  123. David McCoy says:

    Understandable.

  124. aaronedgardrum says:

    I wish there was! I definitely would have been into that when I was younger. 🙂

  125. aaronedgardrum says:

    Actually, as much as I wasn’t in drumline or marching band or anything. I did work on a lot of the Wilcoxon material. Pretty in depth at that. So I kinda did on my own.

  126. David McCoy says:

    Wilcoxon?

  127. aaronedgardrum says:

    Charlie Wilcoxon, he has a few really killer snare drum solo books

  128. wolverine777182 says:

    what a sound bro! nice vids too!

  129. DonGiovanniAv says:

    Does the s-hoops increases the harmonics?

  130. Kyle Balles says:

    What kind of hats you got there?

  131. AYONPA says:

    do you know what tickeness the s-hoop is?
