Re: Color Matching - Sonor Force 3007 & Session Series

Can't answer your question directly, but if you would consider sticking with the 3007 series, have you called Dale's Drum Shop? As I understand it they bought out all of Sonor's remaining stock when...

Re: Nashville and College...

Belmont grad here. Here are my thoughts in no particular order.

1. Everyone's experience will be different, so take any general statements with a grain of salt.

Re: Is it unethical to buy drums made in China?

I feel like I should chime in here. I lived in China for a short while in 2005 and got to see a lot of the country.

China is a really complicated place. Pollution is a big problem but I don't...

Re: Metronome + Backing tracks - Please help

When you choose your software platform you need to make sure it allows you pan or bus the click to its own line out. Your interface looks like it has 8 1/4" outs. So you would need to map the click...

Re: My live backing track/click setup

Re: 20" HHX studio ride at MF - 179.00

That's a really tempting deal. Does anybody here have experience with this ride who could describe its sound or compare it to other cymbals? Reviews and sound files are conspicuously absent out on...

Re: 16" bass drum... Hints/Suggestions?

"L" arm with a cowbell on it? Or tambourine? Or any piece of percussion with an eye bolt mount?

Nice work on the little kick. More pics of the Rockers?

Re: 16" bass drum... Hints/Suggestions?

My 16" Sonor 3007 floor tom does double-duty as a mini-kick for small stage / low volume applications. For spurs I am able to just pull the spurs off my kick and put them through the tom's leg...

Re: Assistance in id'ing a Pearl Marching Snare

Re: Sonor Force 3007 14" Floor Tom Blue Fade

Have you checked Dale's Drum Shop? As I understand it they bought all the remaining 3007 stock from Sonor when that series was discontinued and have the largest 3007 shell bank of anyone. If any...

Re: What can you not play with 12/14/20; or, should I sell these?

Great job on the MIJ kit and those Pearls look great. I'm curious - I see you have die cast hoops on your Pork Pie snare. Can you comment on how the die casts changed the sound of the snare? I...

Re: Discovered something quite surprising about an 8" tom

Yikes. You play 3007s right? Is the 8" the only one with that issue? Like others I'm hoping it's just that the head is stretched out. Glad it sounds good despite the clearance issue.
