I've no idea my friend, because I haven't seen up to date Sonor hardware for a good few years. I did have some Sonor hardware back in the day, & it was always right up there from a construction quality point of view.

The big surprise to me was the Yamaha pedals. I've used Yamaha d for years, & believe it to be consistently the best out there, but I always regarded their pedals as a bit cumbersome & uninspiring. Their latest 9000 series are very well made & also very smooth & responsive. Constructional quality is certainly a cut above the DW5000 series, and, at least in the UK, cheaper too.
