Default My Sonor 3005

Hey Guys,

its me and my Sonor 3005 Special Edition Set again.
Many things changed since the last time and so I just want to post my equipment again.
New are heads, metronome, splash, china I guess, heads and the whole setup.

What you see is a Sonor 3005 Special Edition Set in Blue Sparkle. This is a unique finish for 3005 Sets but you find this finish now already by 3007 Sets.
All Maple Shells are doing a fine sound.

With Emperor Heads the toms are just great. They have a big volume. Every tom is much more a musical instrument and not just a tom.
EMAD on bass drum makes a really great bass! Just amazing. The Snare is great but I’m still using the Sonor stock heads.
But the Sound of Sonor 3005 is just amazing! They are, here in Germany, with 1000€ very cheap and so so so good!

Than I have Masterwork cymbals. These are Turkish and handmade cymbals and they really sound great. Hi-hat has a great crizzle and a bright open tone. Crash is like a Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash and the Ride is very light. It’s easy to crash and got a clear defined ping.
Wuhan China…I guess you know how it sounds and a Vintage Bronze Stagg Splash. That’s a great Splash and fine for the money.
Sound is great too.

Than I sill got my three cowbells and a rim block.
New the Millennium Rhythm watch metronome. It’s the same like Tama rhythm watch but the millennium is cheaper. Same function and it came with a cymbal stand, headphones, ACDC and a foot pedal to turn on/off.

At least I’m playing a Yamaha Flying Dragon Direct Double Pedal. This pedal is sooooooo great and I never played a better one. I owned already a IC Power Glide and it was worse than the Flying Dragon.




Tom Sizes:

BD: 22x17,5
TT: 10x9
TT: 12x10
TT: 13x11
FT: 16x16
SD: 14x5


Cymbal sizes:

Splash: 10” Stagg Vintage Bronze
HH: 14” Masterwork Troy
CR: 16” Masterwork Troy
CR: 16” pAiSTe 101
RD: 20” Masterwork Troy
China: 13” Wuhan China




In four weeks I will post some pictures of my new cymbals.
I will get:
- Sabian HH 17” Medium Thin Crash
- Sabian HH 16” Rock Crash
- Meinl Classics 10” Splash

Now the pics:

That looks amazing!
Real nice finish, nice setup too.

Those 3005's really are great drums, especially considering what they cost.

The blue sparkle, while not as hot as the lady in your avatar is pretty nice. Where are Masterworks cymbals from?

Hey, looks awesome! I got to know that Sonor drums in general have this special warm character, especially those toms. I like em more and more.
Also this finish looks exclusive man, cool choice!

The only thing I don`t like too much is that the toms toms are an inch deeper than "normal". but okay, I`m just not a great fan of that...overall nice one.

Karl

Hey Karl,

also da muss ich dir echt Recht geben!
I´m not a big fan of that toms with 1 inch more. I needed a couple of months until i got my toms really comfortable mounted.
But already now i got them adjusted very good.
But if i will ever buy new drums i will get 10x8 etc. toms and a 20x20 Bassdrum :D Lovley size!

You could spend two days with these drums. You just have to pick a plain and travel to germany :)
But we have dogs....very big dogs!

Hey,

Yeah! Another 3005 user! I have the feel that sonor is not so often used in USA/UK/AUS .
Much more often i see pdp, dw, pearl, tama etc.
Whats the reason?

:) Thank you sleepybrighteyes. Thats my room at home. It is in the 2. floor and so you can here me playing in the whole house and the whole village :P
I have to stop playing after 8pm because the kids of my neighbour are going to sleep.

But i like it more than "drum-cellars" or anything like this because it is more homely.
In sommer if i wake up the sun is shining in my room and all of the sparkle and the hardware glint and my room is a kind of blue. Thats sooooo nice :)

Lg

Nice kit you have there! I'm always a fan of blue sparkle kits. Great bass pedal selection too, I have the same, the direct drive is so much more responsive than anything else, how do you find it?

P.S You might want to move the snare stand away from touching the pedal, it can make the snares vibrate when you don't want them to.

Hey,

:D Thats so funny. Bob Gadet...nice idea.

Thats for the comment. Yeah, i really should get the snare away from my bd pedals.
But i have the problem that my hihat is much to far away from me. So i tried to get the whole pedals nearlier togehter, so that i have the snare not so far away.
But i don´t really works...

Hey,
thank you.
I guess that Sonor 2005 sets are very good too!
The main difference is the wood.

True that Sonor is german but I believe that the 3005's are made in china from chinese maple and that's why they are cheaper than the German made Sonor's. But I guess they're probably better than my PDP's made with Mexican Maple by a guy with a gold tooth and a sombrero!!!! LMAO!!!

The 3005's are made in China. Which kind of wood i don't know, but it has to be a well one! :)

Ya, the wood is chinese maple and the chinese do make an excellent drum. As for the mexican's, I was only joking anyway. My kit was actually built in the DW plant and inspected by the QC manager at DW (long story on that one). I had a 3005 myself but traded it in for a Taye Studio Maple, which was an amazing kit. Also built in China!!!

Hey,

which pedals? Hihat, BD or metronom? BD right?

Ok the direct drive pedals are absolutely great! They are really sticking on your foot. They just do, what you want. I already played an iron cobra powerglide pedal and selled it because it swings to much.
YOu can't compare direct drive with chains. The feeling is another.

Over years Axis pedals with direct drive were called the fastest ones. You see, direct drive is comfortable!

Lg
Tobi

Ps:. Iron Cobra has a new pedal technic! They did springs under the footboard so that it comes faster back.
I don´t like this, because........yeah....it's not fair, it´s like my pedals have a motor............but i guess they are very comfortable.
