Default Sonor and Paiste Sigs

Completed my switch from Dimensions to Signature Paistes (almost).

schwwwiiiing!! I guess I found out ebony looks amazing. Killer cymbals, pedals, and stands even. They must fill that room with a nice sound.

Actually I've never seen the inside of a snare drum look that wicked. It has such a nice grain, looks better than most outer plies.

So you decided you'd remortgage the house AND sell the kids? Very nice stuff, are you in fact a rockstar?

In my own mind, I am in fact a rockstar. Twirling sticks, slamming beers, the works.

Everyone is a rockstar in their minds let's face it. A lot of things happen in my mind. A lot of things that i know will never come true but i think them anyway just incase if i wish hard enough it just might happen (even though it won't.) It's what helps me get to sleep at night (i really should be in bed now, that's why i sound so crazy.)

T-t-t-tasty, tasty, as Fergie would say.


The vertical grain finish is killer, hope you enjoy the Signatures.

That's just "dead sexy!"

I am still waiting for some sigs myself. As much as I like other lines of paiste, nothing on earth has the musically silvery shimmer of paiste signature cymbals.

Ebony sonor deserve the best. <--- oooh, I used the same word I tell others not to!

Really though, it looks great!

This is one of my favorite kits on the forums...very tasty. I love that (bronze?) monster, too. Let me know if it gets in your way and you need somewhere to store it for a while.

Yeah man, if I'm not mistaken I'd say that's a Danny Carey sig model?

thats a sharp looking set up there, congrats!

must be good to finish the 'transformation', how do those Sig's sound? like many high end Paiste's, they're never in a drum shop to play around with :-(

Nope, it's a HLD 598 cast bronze from the early 90's.
Same dimensions as the DC snare, but that's about where the similarities end.

Thanks. I agree about the signature line being very "musical" or orchestral sounding. Nothing quite like them! (Although 2002s are a very close second...)

Great kit! Funnily enough its more or less the same layout I'm hoping for with my Mapex Saturns that i've ordered.

If its possible is there any chance you could take a few pictures of the front of the kit, with some close up shots of how you have the two rack toms mounted with the cymbals?

I'd really appreciate it if you could.

But yeah...really nice kit, its look very comfortable :)

Looks like the cymbal boom is clamped to the other crash's stand. The toms are set up on the base of the second stand. Its difficult to tell for sure though. Very nice drums.

It's pretty simple. I have a double tom stand with a straight cymbal stand just next to it. On that straight cymbal stand is a Tama multi-clamp with a tama boom arm (you can buy them together) with a splash cymbal on it.

The ride cymbal is an old boom stand set just above the bass drum.

Man o man.

Sonor Signature Series 9 Piece in Madagascar Birch Bubinga from 1985 was my dream set. When I see one for sale on ebay I cry at the loss that guy is going through!

But never have the $14K to buy them!

Enjoy the best! I will have to play the rest!
