Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

DSOP,

Here is a picture of the claw assembly. The t-rod goes thru the part from the hole on the left:

Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

The inserts are not sold separately. The entire claw-gasket assembly needs to be purchased.



I am expecting an after-market replacement to come in early next week. I have tried three sets...

Re: RANT: Dissapointed in Sonor

What is this supposed to mean? Why would I lie? How would I have fixed these pictures? I understand you might think I'm exaggerating, but to imply such a thing would be going to similar lengths...

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

I'm glad you enjoy it. Great price, too. Me, I've had four (4) of these and eventually let go of all of them. Of course, I was following the general lore. However, no matter how hard I tried to...

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

11 years ago this summer I paid $1,500 for a new four shell pack (10-12-14-22). You gotta watch out for the bass drum claws tho: heat and stuff can ruin them in the long run. Soundwise, however,...

Mr. Ron Spagnardi (RIP) wrote a couple of books on the subject. They were focused keenly on the subject at hand. I suggest...

Re: My P-86 does NOT fit in my Supra!

It's really close, but no cigar... It's an early 80s B/O badge 5x14.

My P-86 does NOT fit in my Supra!

It seems I need to enlarge the holes and file either one of them to make the separation distance about 1/16" wider. Anyone here ever had this problem before?

Re: RANT: Dissapointed in Sonor

I can see I used the wrong term, and maybe that leads to some assumptions as to what the tone of my message is. However, I don't think that alone was off-putting enough that Sonor would make a...

Exactly.



I thought the exact same thing, so I already did. They arrived today, in fact.

Re: RANT: Dissapointed in Sonor

I do live in the tropics, so it's a given that weather comes into play. However, the wood, paint and metal have all held up to what I hate to admit have been less that ideal conditions.

You most definitely ROCK sir!

P.S. - I paid $1500 for a 5-pc shell in 2003. $300 is 20% of the kit's cost...

RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

I had the rubber in my drumset's bass drum claws break down on me. The set is 10 yrs. old. The claws are now unusable and my set is out of service.

I shared a message and some pics on another...

Re: Do we really need expensive drums?

My story is as follows:

I was invited to work on a grunge-blues-rock project. Recording was the first item on the agenda. When I asked the director what he wanted, he mentioned Stone Temple...

Re: Snare Advice!

I would go with the Lil Squealer, but not the 7x14, but rather the 5x12 Maple Black Matte. They can be had for close to $100, have killer volume and a hell of a tuning range.

Re: Emmanuelle Caplette is Getting Even Better

I wonder what could be going on that a player that's this good won't score a better gig than playing covers on YT or that cheesy pop singer she plays for (UGH!)...

She's superb.
