    I'm trying to find some 15-inch, 8-lug drum hoops to outfit an old field drum with. I have the original wooden hoops/claws/special lugs, but I'm trying to add the functionality of releasing the snares. (obviously, this means that one of the hoops needs to have a snare gate). Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can find these? All that I can find in the typical internet places (Steve Weiss, Drum Foundry) are hoops for toms (with no gates).
    Thanks for your help!
