Well this is my Sonor Force 2003 kit. I'm still working on it. I need three new crashes an 17"and a 19", so I get rid of that 16" Z Custom crash. AI also need a AXX 18" china , four splashes 6", 8", 10",12" . I need a 16" floor tom, one or two stacks and a real Cowbell on the auxiliary pedal. Also some new heads I was thinking the new EC2 and EMAD 2. For resos Genera G1. well that's about it I will finish it as soon as possible and I will post new pics so you can see my progress.

Re: My Sonor Kit
 
Sorry I forgot to post the specs.
Well the current specs are:
8", 10", 12", rack toms
14", 16", floor toms
14" x 5.5" Snare drum
22" x 17.5" Bass drum
-------------------------------------------
16" AA Rock Crash
16" Z Custom Crash
18" AA Rock Crash
20" AA Rock Ride ( I love it!! )
14" AA Rock Hats
-------------------------------------------
Iron Cobra Power Glide Twin Pedal
Evans Heads - G2 on top of toms; Genera resonant on bottom - Genera dry on snare; Genera resonant on snare side - Rythm Tech Active Snare System - EMAD on Bass


I need more cymbals and variations between Sabian series. I got too much AA Rock cymbals wich are very good but I want more colors and depth. I was thinking some HHX and Vault cymbals would be great for me. I want to experiment with some new heads like the new EC2s from Evans and the EMAD 2 bass head.

I eliminated the third pedal because I broke that yellow thing I had mounted. Practicing clave is freaking hard!!

Damn cool kit!! We have a Sonor 2003 in the school and I love to play with it!!! Lovely set up. I love it! Normally, maple isn`t my choice but this special maple/basswood sound I like a lot...Sonor`s special sound...

Re: My Sonor Kit
 
Thanks for all the comments people! Taylor Made - the hats sound geat, very loud, very crisp with good stick definition. Cdawg_2010 I don't have the china I'm planning to get the AAX 18" china on the next few months. Thank you all!

The Iron Cobra Power Glides are great pedals. In my book they are up there with the DWs.

Yes I think it is a Force 2003 snare, same finish, it is a 5.5" normally, or? I think that is the standard when you buy a set. ok, PDP makes 5" deep snare drums...

Nice kit!

It's hard to top Sonor, IMHO.

Yes man I really need a few more toys. I love to be sorrounded by cymbals and stuff. Im trying to save for a Sabian AAX Effects Pack which includes a 18" China and a 10" Splash. But I'll hang out with the current setup for a while because I have to pay some stuff and contribute to my house's debts so that SUCK'S A LOT.

I really want a new 7 piece Sonor SQ2 kit in scandinavian birch finish. Those kits are awesome, but super expensive.

I'm not using that pedal anymore. I was practicing some clave stuff on it until it broke. It was a lid from a spray paint can. I taped it and it worked like for two days hahaha obiously the sound was crap and too low to hear. I used to play it while using the hot rods so I could hear.

Hopefully someday I'll have a real bell for that pedal.

This post is very old and I have changed they way I think of drumming even my setup has changed a bit. Now I play with the cymbals lower, my pedal is looser now, my throne is lower and the tom angles are a bit different. About the toys thing, no I do not need them and I dont want them anymore. Now I want a 20" Sabian HH chinese and three crashes more maybe two 18" and a 20" or 19" and a extra Hi Hat. I really want to get rid of the Zildjian crash.

I wanted Four crashes, four splashes, two chinas and a pedal for clave. That's a lot! But I don't want them anymore.

So my kit will have four Crashes, one China, Hi Hat, Ride and an X Hat. For me that's not too much and I really need them because my band requires a lot of different sounds and I 've got tired of the same sounds.
