Default New 3007's

I just received this new Sonor 3007 6 piece kit and it goes on the road this weekend. Iím giving my Gretsch kit a much deserved rest. The 3007ís have a great sound even with the stock Chinese Remo heads so for now I will be playing those on the job. The single ply heads have such a good tone and projection Iím sure once a little more money is earned I will be putting new Remo clear Ambassadors on this kit. I had actually ordered Emperors and have decided to keep them in reserve, maybe for my Gretsch kit. Anyway Iím looking forward to playing on a new kit this weekend, Yea.

The "S" Series cymbals are great. I have Zildjians that date back to my first kit in 1964 but for a bright cutting cymbal the Wuhans cut through the mix and sound great doing it. Probably the best cymbal bang for the buck spent. The funny thing is I was in a music store today playing A Customs and thinking these really sound good but for half the price the ďSĒ Series can give you just as much sound. They are not for every type of music but for classic rock and new country they do great. The best of the bunch is the 16 inch crash. Give them a try.

You have to be kidding, right! If you donít play your hats at the top of the travel you can collapse your cymbals and that is a big ďno noĒ. When I play my hats with a full stroke they set as tight together as needed and you get great pedal feel. Also when open as you see them you can do a great roll on your top cymbal. And Ö. Most importantly it feels right.

As for the 6 piece setup some years back I had a Tama kit with this setup and it just felt perfect with the four toms. My Gretsch kit also is set up in this fashion. Again, it just feels right. My Slingerland kit is a 7 piece with larger toms and as much as I love that kit with it set up in the 7 piece configuration it doesnít have the playability the Gretsch & Sonor have. For years I played the Slingerland kit as a five piece setup just for that reason. When I bought the Gretsch kit three years ago I knew the 6 piece with the smaller toms was what I wanted and the rest as they say is history.

Great lookin' kit. I'm seeing more and more of the 3007s popping up. I have played a snare from one of the kits, and it did sound exceptionally nice. Good stuff.

Very nice.
Another fine Sonor product. You should have those for life unless you are like Rob and you will sell them still with the new smell.

I played the new 3007ís last night for their first gig and they sounded wonderful. In reality we played in a club that seats around 180 to 200 people and in that room I did need to tweak the bass drum just a little but even with the factory heads (Remo UTís) the toms and snare sounded great. I like the single ply projection so much that in a couple weeks I will order some clear Ambassadors for the kit. As for the bass drum all I had to do was tune down the batter head just a touch last evening (hard to tell this in our practice room Ė AKA Basement). The kit being setup in the same configuration as my Gretsch kit there was no issues with the comfort of the kit. We play again this coming weekend so I will have had a chance to go over the kit tuning once again before we play. I also have new cases coming for the Sonorís, Protector Elites so I donít have to use my Gretsch kit cases. They should be here before next weekís job. As I said before now to decide what kit to take to each job Ö life is sooooo hardÖ.

Glad to hear all went well, rritter. It's a beautiful kit. Is the largest rack tom a 9x13? I have the Protechtor Elite cases and love them .... Good luck with the Sonor and congratulations.

Thanks
The largest rack tom is a 10x13. The Protector Elites should do quite well. When I price shopped I compared the SKBís, H&B, and the Protectors. The design and price was the deciding factor.

Excellent. I play a 10x13 as well; it compliments my 9x12 rack tom and my floor toms nicely. Again, nice kit. And, yes, the price and construction of the Protechtor cases is excellent.
