I am the happy owner of a 4 piece sonor S class maple. It's a 22/12/13/16 kit that I bought 2 years ago (second hand). this was the serie that was replaced by the Sclass pro serie (wichi has been replaced by the sclassix).
I don't have very good pictures of it, but here is one

You & Joeybeats.. The Miss World and Miss Universe of Drums!

now there's an idea... a Drummerworld Beauty Paegent! Every member votes in their favorite kit, theres a short-list and eventually a winner! ( mods listening ?)

You boys got it won already, though...

My Five Star Ebony kit with DW Neil Peart Edge Snare
I recieved a Attack Medium 2 Ply and its just amazing what a combination these shells are with those heads. Plus you can see the beauty of the innear veener.

The Neil Peart snare is perfect as main snare. The kit it self is just beyond description. Derek Roddy was right, best kit he ever heard or played. Thomas Lang and Steve Smith are two masters who have played my kit...I am the third.

Hi Sonor folks,

Have any of you had an issue with the sharp bearing edges Sonor uses on their drums. Most are using a rounded edge now but I see Sonor is still cutting a sharp edge.

No issues but I just bought a new Force 3007 and the edges are cut sharp compared to the edges on my Gretsch kit. Gretsch along with others use a more rounded edge that mates quite well with the curve of the drum head. My Gretsch kit has always been easy to tune and sounds great. As for the Force kit I just got it yesterday and haven’t spent much time with it. It is a great build though and I am looking forward to getting it ready for our shows. It is finished in natural maple and should look great on stage. What I was asking was if any of the Sonor players had any feedback as to how they tune and sound with this edge design. I do like the “Tunesafe” lugs. Every manufacture should have this feature. I play this weekend but hope to spend time Sunday working on the tuning and setup of the kit. Looking forward to it.

The sharper edge offers less edge-to-head contact area, which allows the head to reverberate longer, hence slightly increased projection and sustain.

It can mean more overtones and sometimes a little bit more work to get them tuned just right, but the extra resonance and overtones will allow for greater flexibility with your tuning.

My force 3007 kit sounds great micd up, but I am running them with 2-ply tom heads at the moment and the head's thicker design kinda makes the sharper edge theory mute. On my Designer series though, the single ply heads absolutely sing, with heaps of low-end.

Some companies deliberately round their edges to give a more focused thump, particularly on floor toms. My theory is that if you ever wanted to ADD resonance to these drums, youd be limited for options. If drums with sharper bearing edges offer too much resonance, its always easier to dampen to your needs...

My 2 cents anyway...

Re: Show Off your SONOR DRUMS.
 
I received the Five Star kit with Attack 2 ply clear heads on the toms and a PS3 Classic on the bassdrum. Perfect heads for those thin sharp edge shells. Loads of deep low end and they just sing without too much overtones. I love the Attack heads. I want to put them on the Signature kit next time round. I tried Ambassador coated on the Sigs, then went to factory installed Pinstripes. Much nicer and way deeper with the Pinstripes. Sounded real higher pitch and more jazz kit with the Ambassadors, totally Bonham with the Pinstripes.

I think the Attack heads are the best choice yet.

I got home this evening and had some time with the new 3007’s and got all the drums sounding nice with the stock UT heads. I ordered Emperors last evening and I hope they will work as well on the Sonor kit as they do on my Gretsch kit. Hopefully I can get some pictures up soon.

Another five star classic. My first Sonor kit.

Went into look at ordering a custom DW. Saw this kit i the store and it was all over. I especially love the ebony veneer in and out as I am also a hobbiest woodworker. Yes I know, cymbal polish is on my list.

Re: Show Off your SONOR DRUMS.
 
I believe the five star kits to be the best sounding kits made. I cannot say enough about Sonor drums. To me they are by far the best drums. I love Gretsch, Yamaha, Pearl, Slingerland etc but that Sonor sound is the cats meow.

Hi

New Sonor Force 3007’s in the Maple finish. Just got these this past Wed. and I must tell you even with the stock Remo UT heads these drums sound awesome. I hope to have better pictures in better lighting soon. The snare is the best kit drum I’ve played in this price range. Now I get to give my Gretsch Catalina Birch kit a rest. I have been 100% pleased with my Gretsch kit and everything tells me this will be true of the Sonors. The Sonor drum line has a “Tune Safe” lug design that every manufacture should offer. Yea I’m happy!

I came thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssssssssss close to buying your Blue Roots kit, was going to pick it up on a day trip to Fairfax. But my truck decided it needed rust work done on the doors instead. I'll just hang with my 3005's.
