Default my new Sonors.....

Just got my new sonor S-Drive kit. Pretty sweet in smooth red burst. Sound is nice and punchy. I like the setup now since I can position tom without severe angles.

thankx. wasn't really sure of what to really expect. I had a tom in my hands only when looking at it. Really don't get it unless you see a whole kit though.

I really like my transparent black Arena kit. Very subtle and could see the grains. but, couldn't get it in this kit. Piano black was the closest thing, but it's black, hiding all the grains.

I got my Phil Rudd snare, so don;t know what I will do with the kit snare. May keep it or sell it.

I've never heard of the Sonor S-Drive, but they sure look great.

May I make a recommendation in regards to the snare situation.
If you can... Keep the original snare. At the very least it can be a backup just in case you break a head on your other one etc. But for more reasons than none keep it for the simple fact that one day down the road you will upgrade your kit. It's a given and nature of the beast with us drummers, you always want the next best thing, and when it does come your way you will wish you had that snare to go along with the kit. TRUST ME happened to me when I sold my 3007's to get my S Classix. I had a hell of a time selling the 3007's without a snare.
You can always tune the thing up high and use it as a side snare.
But keep it, you will thank me later, plus you always have to have at least 2 snares..

Beautiful kit and love the finish. I sometimes wish that I bit the bullet and got the select force series new over a used 3007. Still love my drums.

S Drive isjust the configuration of the series which include a 2 up 2 down config. There are others called studio, stage, bop etc.

to all who are interested in the S-Drive kit. Here's how I got there. My buddy owns a local drum shop and is a sonor dealer. My drum instructor teaches there. He lived in nashville and toured around with the likes of dixie chix, etc. He had a gig with Sarah McLachlan and her husband was playing a compact kit. He said kit sounded great and could move around very easily,

So, there's how i got turned on to the S-Drives. They are really Select Force S-Drive/

The link:

Piperdoog, i hear ya. that's a good recommendation. I'll keep it. That way, I can at least find out how it sounds.
