Re: Sonor Select Force Jungle vs. PDP Concept Maple experience

Hey KWA not sure what your budget is but I have a 5x14 delite snare that I could give you a nice deal on. I've been a big fan of SONOR for awhile now and own a Safari kit myself. Love that little kit.

Re: Sonor Designer or DW Collectors?

Awesome kit power tom. That designer that Artstar posted is my old maple light. Man do I miss that kit. The way you described the sound as being nearly devoid of nasty overtones to me is the hallmark...

Re: SQ2 versus PHX

As the former owner of a Yamaha PHX and the current owner of an SQ2 I will chime in. The PHX drums to me were very wild, bombastic sounding drums. Almost sounded like they were larger than their...

Re: Need help taking the first step
