These shootout/comparison videos are useful to demonstrate the subtle differences that changing little things on your drums can make.

Here is one from Michael Dawson demonstrating the difference between die-cast and triple-flanged hoops on a snare drum with the same heads and tuning.

And here is Bob Gatzen demonstrating the same thing using a metal snare drum. It’s interesting how each type of hoop affects metal vs. wood drums.
