    I'm talking about permanently installed ones, not clip-on's, but has anyone ever tried to put those on a BD hoop?
    How did it work for you? Was that a pretty straight forward install, or did you have to do a certain amount of "mods"?

    Seems pretty easy to do. Front hoop looks like metal. I was worried about weight/stress on wood hoops, but I guess it would work on metal hoops. Now does it work? I don't know - it certainly looks funky......I think the front hoop is bigger than the bass? That is really messing me up now - how will it mount down the reso head, or is it just on for show? Very odd.....

    Wow, I didn't know you can get clamp-ons! I'm thinking of getting one for my Starclassic. Original ones have corroded, expensive to replace and the less hardware on the shell the better.
