Thanks for all the great comments on my kit. I really dig this forum, your all great & understand what my fellow guitarists & my girlfriend doesn't :o)

Im soooo in love with this kit im buying gloves to set it up etc... lol...

Nobody is aloud to touch it incase they leave paw prints...

Its the 3rd kit & the best ive ever had.. (pearl export & ddrum diablo before)
Its really a unique looking kit & nobody i know or ever played a gig with ever had a sonor...

Everything on this kit it in my opinion totaly professonal..... If i ever had the choice to get an upgrade id think well why... this does the job nicley!!!

I like to be different.

i get told of lots for spending time on this forum...

Russ

Very nice kit. I really like this and the amber fade in the 2007 line, also like the fact they offer the 2007 laquered. She's a beauty dude!!

They look nice. I still think pearl vision owns in the birch category. Mapex m birch too, but still, nice looking kit.

LMFAO Hardly! Both the Pearl Vision and M Birch don't hold a candle to what Sonor is doing.

cmon guys. Let's not get into a fight over this. I was just saying the 2007's don't have as much featres as the visions or the mapex m birch. Mind you they do make nice kits, but sonor do have great deals. Why not 3007?? Not a fan of maple??

They all have identical features. There is nothing different except with Pearl using obnoxiously thick shells on the Vision, which equal BOING and not warmth. All projection and attack and no tone.

8 ply 10mm thick shells is just ridiculous. They are trying to market the greatness of a Reference kit in an entry-level to intermediate level kit to attract young buyers. Sonor has a bit more class than that. In fact, they really don't target anyone, they let the drums do the talking.

Mapex M Birch are the exact same thing as the Force except for different suspension mounts. Sonor's hardware is much better in all aspects than Mapex.

Mapex Pro M and M Birch might be made at the same factory as the Sonor Force kits but they are both two different assembly lines. The Sonor side uses the exact same tooling as the German factory, in fact they shipped equipment from the Sonor German factory to the China factory. Everything about the Force kits is German Engineered but simply manufactured in a factory in China that is a replica of the German factory. That's the difference between Mapex Pro M/M Birch and the Sonor Force kits.

Ha ha. Thanks man. I think you're right. I've never "hated"on the sonor kits, it's just that I find the m birch beat 2007's. Don't get me wrong, I like the 2007's, but I just find mapex m birch sound better. Now in my hardware case, Sonor woops mapex. But I don't need hardware.

Thanks its a pearl brass free floater 14 x 6.5. I got it on ebay a few years ago for 130ish from some guy who used it on cruize ships. He bought it in new york in 1981 so its as old as me :) Ive just started using my pearl ian paice sigature steel snare again & thats rules also! Getting a very bohnam type sound out of it.

hehe, funny that the paice snare sounds like bonham. Btw 130 seems a reasonable price for what seems to be a very nice snare? any recordings of it? as I'm looking for a new snare myself.. thanks

Lol maybe a cross between paice & bohnam then.

Checkout www.myspace.com/atenattack All recorded on a mixer & mixed on my p.c.none with this sonor though. all with my old pearl export or ddrum but all with my brass free floater

I've had my Sonor SQ 2's for 2 months now and I can't believe the superb sound quality and construction that Sonor puts out. Truly amazing!
Congrats on your Sonor 2007, it's beauty.

Thanks again for all your lovely comments. I will stick some more photo's up soon as im going im the studio sunday to put down some drum tracks. Its just to a few bands projects i will mix at home but will be first time ive had somebody recording my drums. I normaly do it myself up my dads (detached house) But the use of the engineer & his placements & tons of really really nice mic's in a acoustic treated room it should be fat... My kits all nicely tuned with new heads & ready to rock n roll!!

I always stay true to my word. Here is some picture's of my 4 hour studio session at soundlocker studio's that cost me 100. I did 2 tracks against pre recorded rough guitar tracks with a click track. all in all it was a great experiance (first time recording drums in studio) we used 17 mic's!!! Yes 17 mic's.

4x overheads inc hihat
2x on bassdrums
2x snare
8x top & bottom of 4 toms!
1 room mic

All aqurian
sk2' & regulaters on bassdrums
super 2 clears on tom's with classic clear (black!) reso's
evan genara hd dry & on snare with small bit of moon gel.
No dampening on the rest on the kit apart from the bassdrums own muffled heads.

I took the session home on dvd in wav's & mixed it on flstudio which ive been using for years although im dabbling with cubase sx as well now.

Kit was my sonor 2007 2x22 10 12 14 16... iron cobra pedals
4 x 6.5 pearl brass free floater snare
18 & 19 aaxplosion crash's
18" aax china
14" aax stage hats
20" aa metal x ride
12 wuhan china splash

Please checkout the recording's on my new myspace. Although im not a real recording studio but i thought rather than have a personal myspace id create one for all the music i record & mix on my pc for the bands & projects im lucky enough to have been involved in. I think you will agree ive got a pretty good sound from my new kit using 17 mic's & my own mixing skills...... Thanks for looking

www.myspace.com/rusterecordings (please excuse me if i have no friends but my girlfriend. I have got friends honest..... Just set it up & working it)

Thats a very beatiful finish, im thinking to get that one.

may i ask you something, do you know what are the specific differences between the two sonor's models, apart of the wood, because i know the 2007 it's made of birch and the 3007 it's full maple. and the hardware they bring it's also different.
but in the sonor page it says that the 3007 comes with rubber on the bass drum claws, to protect the wood hoop. and other thing i have noticed recenltly, is that the 3007 comes with some kind of rubber between the lugs and the shell. About the last thing it doesn't says anything on the page.

Thanks, and sorry for my little english.

and keep drumming on that beauty.

I love the look of that set, very nice..and I've always been a fan of double bass kits (Being a child of the 80's rock bands)..lol.

I almost got the 6 pc sonor 3005 series in black sparkle, but decided after much debate on the gretsch.
