TRIPLE FLANGE RIM

This is the most common type of hoop.  The lower bends provide stability, and the outward bend at the top helps improve rimshot and rimclick tones. This triple-flange hoop produces the most overtones out of the three hoops.

S-STYLE STICK SAVER

The top of the rim is curved towards the center of the drumhead. This provides better protection for your sticks when playing rim shots. In addition, this hoop produces less overtones than the regular tripple flanged hoop. 

DIE CAST RIM

These are single-piece hoops that are cast in molds. They are stronger and stiffer than the other flanges and produce a more equal tension on the entire diameter of the drum head. 
Rim shots and rim clicks sound more natural with this kind of hoop.
