Default My Sonor 2005s

I've been hanging around here for about a year now, and I'm finally posting pictures of my kit. They're just an average mid-line Sonor kit, but they're mine and I like them.

Sonor 2005, standard configuration, natural finish.
Sabian AA 20" ride, AA 17" crash, and 14" AAX hats.

looks great you cymbal choice is nice too. I would may be raise the main tom mount then lower the other two and also try and get your toms at a better angle. If it is comfey then leave it the way it is.

is that your les paul? If so what kind is it and how are you likeing it.

oh they might be mild line sonor, but trust me, they are not average. most people here would agree with me that they are among the best out there.

yes, u might have to reposition the toms a bit.

I was in my local drumshop yesterday and a guy was demo'ing a sonor kit similar to yours, and I could not believe how great the kick drum sounded. It was amazingly punchy and deep even with the factory heads on it, especially for a 22" kick...

2005 may be mid-level kits but actually I like their sound. In school we have a 2003 and it has (like all those Sonors) this typical Sonor sound, very warm, very jazzy in my ears. Unique. That is a good kit, if I have money and if I would like also all the hardware etc. I would consider about buying a 2007 or 3007.

Have fun with the drums and the nice cymbals.

Karl

Hey,

:D Nice Sonors! Nice Cymbals!
With this kit you could get such a great kit, if you change the setup...
It looks very uncomfortable.
Perhapse you can play good on this setup! Than everything is great but i wouldn't get these toms so bevel.

Its up to you!

But really nice cymbals i have to say.

Lg

Thank you all for the nice comments. I'm really happy with the Sonor's and feel like I got an incredible deal for the quality of the set. And, I agree with Jazzplants that the bass drum is great. I've got this set up in my basement, and it sounds like a cannon...even with the stock heads.

I recently put a set of coated Evans G2s on everything except the bass. The drums sounded okay with the stock heads, but the G2s make a big difference.

As for the tom setup, I've tried a lot of different combos and this seems to work best for me. I'm tall, and most of it is from the hips up. Still, I'm open to suggestions.

I like my cymbals, too. One of these days, though, I would like to add a Zildjin Custom A 21" ride. A buddy of mine has one of them, and it is so sweet. It would be a great addition to the Sabians.
