Beautiful kit! That finish is wonderful, and I agree, that hardware looks tough.

Please don't take it bad, but this kind of huge obelisk in the middle of the bass drum and the plate on the bass drum itself look really awful to me!
For the rest I am sure these are wonderful and gorgeous drums.

I've been looking at your set again and again, and I've been thinking about my previous comment every time I have looked at your set. Well, I am a little confused!
On the one side, I do not like to be impolite, and I've possibly been impolite. On the other side, I always try to be sincere. Well, the result of all of that is quite simple: I still maintain that the tom holder and the plate on the bass drum are a little excessive, but I must admit that the set looks gorgeous anyway, and additionally I know how good Sonor drums are.

Hope not to have offended you: if I did, I beg you pardon! You own a hell of a set, and finally who cares about the tom holder!

I happen to like the tom holder, and my kit would have one if I ordered an SQ2 kit. However, it's affectionately known as a 'rocket launcher' and 'boat anchor' for a reason - it's a monster! Love or it hate it, it's definitely all Sonor. :)

Although I've never priced one, I believe that they go for almost $1000!!!

I'm with you, sir. These are otherwise gorgeous drums, but that huge chunk of metal is a disfigurement.

Perhaps if you hung a flag from the tom mount poll. :)
Just kidding. It is actually a very functional tom mount system that can be adjusted to any position.
Nice kit.
