Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I kinda wished I had more sentimentality with my drums, then I might not feel the need to get new drums so regularly :(. It has been a bad habit of mine (I've had about 20 drumkits, since I started...

Re: Yamaha Power V Special Heads

I had the same kit as my first kit in the 90's, pretty good sounding when tuned right with good heads. I would suggest that you get rid of those old Yamaha reso heads, even though you don't hit them...

Re: Help me find a good Drum Kit

If those are your 3 options, I would go for the Sonor, even if it stretches the budget a little. The two others are beginner kits, the Sonor is 100% birch shells, more in the mid-level segment...

Re: Mapex saturn iv exotic ir tama starclassic maple

Well, I have owned both kits you describe (still own the Saturn). In my opinion, as far as quality go, there is no big difference at all. They are both well made pro-kits. But as others have said,...

Re: Tama Starclassic Bubinga vs Mapex Saturn IV Exotic

Well, I have owned both these kits (now own the Saturn IV), and allthough the Bubingas might have a bit more expensive features and are regarded as a bit higher up on the quality scale (the made in...

Re: The biggest gear hoarders in DW

Hmm, I thought I had an extreme hoarding/gear mover thing going on, apparantly not comparing to some in this thread :). People I know do look at me weirdly when I tell them I got new drums on order...

Re: Best Mapex series?

I own the Black Widow kit myself, and can't really put into words how satisfied I am with them ;). Very resonant sounding and excellent build quality. I however wish to own a Saturn IV kit as well, I...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Well, I always had a soft spot for the Black Panther kits and snares, but somehow did not consider them at first when I was looking for a new set. Lookwise I like the lugs and logo more than the...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

I'm not sure, they call them Sonic Savers, I think they are 2,3 mm. Supposedly close to the sturdyness of diecast, but with more open tone...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

I'm sorry not to have updated this thread in a while, things turned around after I got the message a couple of weeks ago that the Sonor kit would take up to 3 months more to get (in the finish I...

Re: Sonor essential force stage 3

I guess it depends on what you compare the hardware with. I've owned Visions, Superstar and now this Essential Force kit, and unfortunately I would say that the hardware on the Sonors are the...

Re: Sonor essential force stage 3

Hello, I have an Essential Force kit myself (Stage 3 is referring to the setup configuration (22/10/12/16), they have Stage 2, Studio 1 and 2 as well, different sizes). As others have said, it's an...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Seems I made the right choice then :). And I definately agree with the statement that sound goes before finish, it's just that when getting into this expensive category, you should not need to...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Thanks, I definately will post pics when they arrive. Currently they don't have them in stock, but supposedly it should not take more than a couple of weeks (according to their website). Seeing as...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

I just ordered the kit described in the post above :). So yet again, thanks for all the replies, it will be really nice to finally have a nice german made Sonor. Now the waiting game begins...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

On the other hand, the Starclassic Maple have very thin maple shells as well, and has been the main kit for many high profile heavy drummers for decades now, so I think it only really matters if you...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Yes, the depth was an issue on my SC Maple kit, it was a 22x20" though. I've been used to playing 22x18" for a while, but those 2" more really made a huge impact on the sound, it was just way too...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Thank you for your post, but this isn't a valid topic for me, because in Germany (where the webshop I'm buying from is located), the cheapest Prolite kit is just a couple hundred euros more then a...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Thanks for the info :-). I will take some time to think this through, don't really need the kit right away. I haven't completely ditched the Saturn route yet, because in my situation (not playing in...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Very true points. I have a lot of hardware at the moment so I only really need the shells. It's a bummer that the more exotic finishes costs more, but I guess some companies just do it like that. I...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Well I have thought a lot over the last days, thinking about the possibility for a custom kit etc., but I always get drawn somehow back to buying the kit at Thomann (or maybe Musicstore) in Germany,...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Very valid, true points. Thing is, I'm buying this kit, most probably, from a german webshop (www.thomann.de, for those that know about them), so the prices vary to some degree compared to american...

Re: Sonor, Mapex or DW...

Thanks for the input. I think I have almost excluded the DW now, I just feel more strongly for the two others in comparison. I guess I will just have to find out what really is the most important...
