We played for a fire dept yard party and we set up on the entrance apron to the truck bays. The apron has a slight slope to it so last evening everything was leaning away from me. Not the natural feel Im use to. This required more concentration on my playing but by applying that extra effort it actually made me more aware and perform better. How did we do last evening? We booked for next year.
Never seen anyone using like all the Wuhan cymbals. Are they any good, the crashes and the hats? Nicee Sonor's, ive just got the plain old 503's :( Do the job though :)

A funny thing about the Wuhans. A couple years ago I ordered a Wuhan China and MF had a deal that if you bought an 18 inch china you get a 16 & 18 S series crash with the deal. I was so impressed with the sound of the two S series I decided to order the 14 inch hats and 20 inch ride. I also ordered a 17 crash to fill out the set. The sound is bright, cutting, and loud. Maybe not as clean as A Customs but much brighter and cutting than all of my A Zildjians. Very suitable for classic rock and country. I own several Zildnians (11 I think) and the Wuhans hold their place in my collection quite well. If you are playing softer music like jazz or blues the Wuhans would not be my cymbal of choice. When you look at the price and their quality they just might be the best bang for your buck in cymbals.

Those look fantastic in natural light! Generally, they look 'yellow' in most pics that I've seen.

You are absolutely right; the natural maple doesnt take a good picture at all indoors with a flash. But they are beautiful to the real eye inside or out. Even in this picture they dont look as good as they do in person. I never had this problem with my Gretsch Cherry Lacquer finish drums. They look great in all light. Go figure.

Wow, that's really something seeing that they already look incredible. I see that those kits are on blow-out at several places, but I haven't seen any in the natural finish. I'm gonna keep my eyes open though.

How about some pictures of the white sparkle? I almost bought that finish but the web site picture looked a little odd. I did see one kit in white sparkle on one of the sites that looked very good.

I owned a white sparkle Force 3005 kit, it didn't look bad at all. It's my favorite finish -- next to the natural maple. :)

I just joined the Sonor family yesterday. Sorry for the crappy cameraphone pic but I can't find my camera anywhere....

I upgraded to these babies, 6-piece Sonor Force 3007 Studio 1 kit from an 8-piece Rockstar.

While I was waiting for these to come in, I was already missing my Rockstars since I had to sell them to afford this and they had served me well, but I'm so happy I traded up. I got a set of Iron Cobras (double pedal) along with buying this for super cheap ($550!) and I'm in love with it.

I got the finish and everything I wanted but I noticed my badges all say Sonor Special Edition on them. Did I get a better/worse deal than I thought? lol

I blame Musiciansfriend.

Nope

The Special Addition kits are a package kit with the add on drum. The drums are the same Force 3007s as the ones with the 3007 badge. This comes straight from Sonor back when I bought my kit. Put Remo Emps on the toms and a PS 3 or Evans EQ 4 on the bass and an Ambassador on the snare and you will hear a wonderful difference. The stock heads sound good but with these heads you will hear a whole new drum kit. Ive been playing since 1964 (yea Im old) and this is one of the best kits Ive owned or played period.

I figured it was something kinda silly like that without too much of a difference, thanks for clarification.

I've got a Melody Master for my snare and honestly was surprised how similar the two snares sounded even once I tuned up the Sonor one with the stock head on it. I still prefer my Melody Master (plus you can't beat the 3-way throwoff) but I might one day put some new heads on that snare and tuned it up just to see how they compare.

I was planning on doing coated over clear Ambassadors on the toms and a PS3 batter/Ported PS3 reso anyways with no muffling.

The fact these drums sound awesome even with stock heads is making me wonder how much more I'll fall in love with these once I put all new heads on them and tune them up.... :3

Force 3000 Birch in rare CT wrap, with matching snare. I had to go to Germany to find the snare and I hand carried it back home. The only other one I could find was in Japan.

Thanks JL.

Your kits are killer.
Tell me more about the 5-star set. It is maple with ebony veneer? When did Sonor make these sets? How is the plating holding up on the hardware?

I posted a picture of these before but I found my camera....

I bought a special edition Force 3007 Studio 1 kit, 9-ply maple shells, 8", 10", 12" and 14" toms, 20" bass drum and another snare I've yet to really use.










New pedals too.... a set of Iron Cobras.








datdrum.jpg









:)

I have new heads on the way too, so when those come in and I reskin these babies I'll post some new pictures and let you guys know how much more I love them lol.

I got Coated Ambassadors over G Pluses for my toms (I guess I'm getting a free coated G Plus which I'll just use as a new snare batter to try and plus I think I've overextended my Reverse CS anyways) and a Coated PS3 batter with a ported PS3 Reso.

I even thought the stock heads sounded pretty great on here once I tuned em up right... I don't even think I can imagine how good these will sound with proper heads and tuning experimenting lol.

Sonor has made me a life-long fan with one kit.

EDIT: Next on the list is new cymbals by the way haha.

Thanks :-)

No, they're coated EC2's. Very nice heads, and worlds apart from the clear versions (which I didn't like at all). Fat and low, just how I like them.

Wowy, that's what I call a heavy guage ply snare shell. More growth rings than ply, it's heavier than my stave!!

Hi Jonathan, the snare is a Yamaha Ndugu Chancellor model, and it was supposedly already signed by him when I purchased the drum from eBay.

No disrespect meant to Mr. Chancellor in any way, but I didn't buy the snare for the signature -- that's why I never bothered to change the head. :)

Take care,
Ed

Slowly got the kit, cymbals, and snare during the summer. Indeed a vast improvement from a no-name brand set with B8's. :) Picture taken with a cell phone, so it's not great quality. Specs are below.

Sonor Force 3007 4-piece kit in Red Maple
10x8, 12x9 (not shown), 14x14, 18x16 bass drum.
70's Ludwig Acrolite (14x5)

Zildjian K Constantinople Medium-Thin Low (20")
Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride (22")
Zildjian K Custom Session Hi-Hats (14")
Sabian 12" HHX Legacy Splash

Set up aesthetically for photo shoot. This is not how I play them :p









You'll notice that is a Tama snare, the Sonor snare is back at the apartment where it is used weekly.

Looks like Sonor's White Pearl finish, which they offer on their S-Classix kits (and obviously on their SQ2 custom kits):
