Re: AK Snare Drums?

I have the 2 piece brass/copper version. It's one of the best metal snare I have ever heard. The patina on the shell darkens the shell over time. This is because he does not seal the drum. They are...

Re: SQ2 Birch (shell thickness… need your help)

Hey I wrote that FAQ. If you want the designer birch sound go with medium shell toms and a heavy shelled bass drum. Go with what you know when ordering an sq2 because you don't want to take chances...

Re: Sonor Designer or DW Collectors?

I have owned a number of dw kits and I own a designer kit and an sq2. It's clear in my head that the Sonor sound is head and shoulders above the DW's. I disagree with that the vintage maple shell by...

Re: Best maple kit on the market.

Sonor makes the best maple kit followed by Gretsch. I am suspicious if you did not like a German Sonor maple kit you might not like maple at all.

Re: Pro end drum kits: Are they really worth the money?

Re: Pro end drum kits: Are they really worth the money?

Makes sense since you have a vested interest in solid/stave shells. I have been in Steve maxwells and played the craviottos and found them a bit dry for my liking. I picked the gretsch next to them...

Re: Pro end drum kits: Are they really worth the money?

Sonor sq2's and gretsch USA customs are head and shoulders above everything else sound wise but cost $$$. If you are satisfied with the sound and looks of the gretsch new classic turn buy it.

Re: Buy Sonor Prolite now...or wait until after NAMM 2013?

I want the American walnut finish to be exclusive to the sq2, since I have a kit on order. I guess it's for selfish reasons to keep it exclusive.

Re: Sonor's build quality- not what it used to be.

My favorite company is Gretsch. Let me clear that up and I apollogize if I offended people with offending what kits that they own . But I won't apologize for the kits that I own or feel bad about it.
