Default UPDATED: My Sonor Soon to Become a Monster

Well this is my Sonor Force 2003 kit. I'm still working on it. I need three new crashes an 17"and a 19", so I get rid of that 16" Z Custom crash. AI also need a AXX 18" china , four splashes 6", 8", 10",12" . I need a 16" floor tom, one or two stacks and a real Cowbell on the auxiliary pedal. Also some new heads I was thinking the new EC2 and EMAD 2. For resos Genera G1. well that's about it I will finish it as soon as possible and I will post new pics so you can see my progress.

Sorry I forgot to post the specs.
Well the current specs are:
8", 10", 12", rack toms
14", 16", floor toms
14" x 5.5" Snare drum
22" x 17.5" Bass drum
-------------------------------------------
16" AA Rock Crash
16" Z Custom Crash
18" AA Rock Crash
20" AA Rock Ride ( I love it!! )
14" AA Rock Hats
-------------------------------------------
Iron Cobra Power Glide Twin Pedal
Evans Heads - G2 on top of toms; Genera resonant on bottom - Genera dry on snare; Genera resonant on snare side - Rythm Tech Active Snare System - EMAD on Bass


I need more cymbals and variations between Sabian series. I got too much AA Rock cymbals wich are very good but I want more colors and depth. I was thinking some HHX and Vault cymbals would be great for me. I want to experiment with some new heads like the new EC2s from Evans and the EMAD 2 bass head.

I eliminated the third pedal because I broke that yellow thing I had mounted. Practicing clave is freaking hard!!

The Iron Cobra Power Glides are great pedals. In my book they are up there with the DWs.

Yes I think it is a Force 2003 snare, same finish, it is a 5.5" normally, or? I think that is the standard when you buy a set. ok, PDP makes 5" deep snare drums...

Nice kit!

It's hard to top Sonor, IMHO.

Yes man I really need a few more toys. I love to be sorrounded by cymbals and stuff. Im trying to save for a Sabian AAX Effects Pack which includes a 18" China and a 10" Splash. But I'll hang out with the current setup for a while because I have to pay some stuff and contribute to my house's debts so that SUCK'S A LOT.

I really want a new 7 piece Sonor SQ2 kit in scandinavian birch finish. Those kits are awesome, but super expensive.

I'm not using that pedal anymore. I was practicing some clave stuff on it until it broke. It was a lid from a spray paint can. I taped it and it worked like for two days hahaha obiously the sound was crap and too low to hear. I used to play it while using the hot rods so I could hear.

Hopefully someday I'll have a real bell for that pedal.

This post is very old and I have changed they way I think of drumming even my setup has changed a bit. Now I play with the cymbals lower, my pedal is looser now, my throne is lower and the tom angles are a bit different. About the toys thing, no I do not need them and I dont want them anymore. Now I want a 20" Sabian HH chinese and three crashes more maybe two 18" and a 20" or 19" and a extra Hi Hat. I really want to get rid of the Zildjian crash.

I wanted Four crashes, four splashes, two chinas and a pedal for clave. That's a lot! But I don't want them anymore.

So my kit will have four Crashes, one China, Hi Hat, Ride and an X Hat. For me that's not too much and I really need them because my band requires a lot of different sounds and I 've got tired of the same sounds.
