This product comes standard on the bass drum hoops of current drums by Yamaha and other mfgs. I used it on a resto-mod '65 Ludwig kit I've been rebuilding.

A number of reviews and expressed disatisfaction with the product also indicate that the product had been used incorrectly, which is understandable because there are no instructions.

The package comes with two hoop guards. Only one can use be used per bass drum hoop. The guard goes on the inside of the rim at the 6:00 o'clock position facing upward. It is engaged by the top clamp of the bass drum pedal (many newer pedals are rubber lined at this area - in such a case you don't need this product. The product is great for use with older pedals, such as the Speedking). It does not, nor is it designed to protect the bottom, outside circumference of the hoop.

There have been complaints about the strength of the glue. This is not an issue on rims with the hoop guard commercially installed because the factories do not use flimsy adhesive, but contact cement. You can do the same. Get a small bottle of Weldwood contact cement from a home improvement store. Set the guard in place and trace it out with a pencil. Put contact cement on both the guard and the hoop and allow it to sit for 15-20 until it is dry to the touch. CAREFULLY line up the two parts and press together - you won't get a second chance. You will have a permanent bond (it can be removed with solvents, but the solvents that will break down the contact cement will also remove the finish from your hoop). This is a PERMANENT modification. The modern drum companies have the hoop guard permanently in place, and presumably if you want to protect your hoop from the pedal, you want to do that all the time.

It's always best to protect your investment and protecting the rims on your bass drum is very important. This item provides a decent amount of protection from the pedal clam onto the rim. But, it could be bit thicker for more dense with the rubber. During first use some of the teeth on my pedal clamp went through the rubber. It only left minor scratches on my rim, but I wish it hadn't let any. Recommend, but believe it could be better.

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-BDHG Drum Hoop Guard:

            I have a very nice custom drumset and bought these day one of owning it to keep the hoops protected. They seemed sturdier than the reviews claimed. I took them out to my first show and when I returned home noticed that the top piece was missing as were the built in rubber guards on the clamp of my Pearl Demon Drive pedal. So not only was this a one time use item, but it also damaged my pedal. Trash

            I have a couple of these laying around. They don't stick to the hoop well so you will lose it more than likely. better ways of protecting your bass hoops I'm sure.

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-BDHG Drum Hoop Guard:

            This 2-pack came in handy...I used one on the bottom of my kick drum where my pedal connects and used the other on the top where I mount a cowbell. I wish I had thought to buy these earlier and wouldn't already have so many "chew" marks on my hoop. Definitely a smart buy if you don't want to mark your hoops up from pedal/mount clamps.

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-BDHG Drum Hoop Guard:

            The Gibraltar Hoop Guard comes with 2 guards which is great because I have 2 different double kick pedals. One is a 2006 DW 5002 and the other is a 1991 DW 5002. The hoop guard fits great under the 2006 model and could not be used on the 1991 model. I just could not fit the pedal on to the hoop. I guess it's time to upgrade the old pedal. As for the pedal it worked with, it's an easy way to protect your hoop.

            Fell Apart Before Use

            By Twanger-xScZA

            from Mars

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-BDHG Drum Hoop Guard:

            This product is complete junk. There is a sticky film on the rubber that is supposed to adhere to the rim... Which could be more damaging than the pedal. I was lucky however as the adhesive just fell off right out of the package so my rim was spared. Just glue a couple of pieces of felt to your pedal.
