Default My SONOR kit...a year later.

Here she be!!






Kit: SONOR Force 3005 Red Maple
Toms: 8", 10", 12", 14", 16"
Base:17.5 x 22
Snares:14 x 5.5 and Tama StarClassic 14 x 5.5

Cymbals:
A 14" thin crash
K 16" medium-thin dark crash
K 17" thin dark crash
K Custom 18" dark crash
K 20" ride
K 14" Hi-Hats

Gone is the Z custom power ride...I just couldn't stand listening to the bell anymore. Replaced it with the K ride. K hats replaced the ZXT titaniums; replaced the 400 series Hihat stand with the Sonor 654. Added Tama Iron Cobra double pedal, and Tama StarClassic maple snare.

What the hell have I got myslef into?? I can't stop looking for something I have to have. When someone said you never stop adding to the kit they weren't kidding....next on the list are some cymbal stands.

Just one more...no one will ever know...

Looks like a shiny, red delicous apple! Just beautiful, and the first kit of that finish I have seen in the 3005 line.

Very tasty cymbals as well! K's are great!

That is an excellent looking setup!

Here is my 3005, although not quite setup as nicely as yours. I don't have any recent pictures to show how it's perfectly tweaked, but you get the idea.

The link is in my signature.

Those are high quality pics as well! You captured a great deal of the finish lustre and wood detail!

Noice...!

NICE! Sonors 3005 series are really awesome drums, ive seen them at my local music store and love some of those fineshes. Zildjian rocks! I love good ol K sound and im lookin to upgrade from ZBT's. (go ahead and chuckle). So basically im not on that adding to my set stage, im just upgrading everything. Again nice set. Got any recordings?

Beautiful set up bro, love all the toms. Hope to be able to play well enough someday so I can add them to my kit. Have you ever heard a 3003kit?? Just wondering, I was going to get a 3005 but have heard they sound pretty much the same which I find hard to believe.

Love the finish too, thats stunning.

Yeah, I really like the Ks, if that wasn't evident.

I actually play a 3003 kit at practice (not mine) and I can hear a difference between the two, but that might be because the heads on the 3003 are still stock. There is a definate difference in the kick drum; I can't get the 3003 to sound anything like mine. The 3003 has a little more punch, my 3005 slighlty less (not much) but I get more boom from it. I can't get the 3003 to boom like it. The 3003 is still a great kit, especially for the price.

Like Synthetik said, you've got some great shots there. I see you have the 14 inch floor tom. Hehe...Wanna switch? I'm not far from Kingston!

Lovely finish...and exellent cymbal choice!

How are your toms tuned? high? low? I`m just curious...

You know what, I actually would, as long as I could get the clamp with it. I prefer the adjustability of a hanging 14 after tinkering around with this setup for so long. I like the thunderous 16x16, but I prefer hanging 14's. How far from Kingston is not far? ;)

It got to the point were I didn't want to hear it anymore. You could get some neat sounds out of it depending on where you hit it, but I'd had enough. I love the K ride.

I looked at the kit, then thought 'Delite?' then looked at the lugs and the badge and realised my mistake.

What a happy mistake it was too. Your kit looks utterly, utterly professional in all ways.

Well it's good to know that others can't get the 3003 BD to boom either, I thought it was my tuning ability as I have tried just about everything. Thanks Sonor

Ooooooooh how I wish!! I was actually talking to someone at the local music store here to see how much and S-Class, or even a *gasp* Delite would go for. Of course neither will be attainable if I don't control myself everytime I walk into the music store...

Now Sonor's kit will be complete and I will be well on my way to switching from floors with legs to hanging which I prefer. Next weekend we are meeting to exchange drums. His 14x12 w/clamp and arm for my 14x14 with legs. I can't wait!

I'll post pics once I get his drum and he gets mine!

Cheers!
