Default Sonor Five Star Makassar Ebony Kit

Thomas Lang and Steve Smith played clinics on the kit, I got it for half price. To me I am the most blessed guy on the planet. How many kits in the world have that distinction?

Derek Roddy was correct. This is the best sounding kit ever. The bass drum is SICK. The 10 inch tom sounds like thunder. Thats insane. I love those Attack 2 ply heads MMMMMMM. And think Thomas Lang and Steve Smith gigged my kit...I got stick marks from two of the worlds best...I am so happy.

Shane from the five star shop in Portland Maine, where ever you are tonight, I owe you a million thanks.

Sonor, You make the best drums in the world...You really do.

There really is nothing else on Earth like opening the boxes containing your brand new drums, and that stunning kit only makes it more exciting.

I'm looking forward to seeing it all set up with cymbals, and perhaps some sound clips?


Congratulations of a simply beautiful drum kit!

It's Robodrum, a lot of hardware on those drums man, Sonor goes way too far when it comes to drum hardware, I'll bet they weigh a ton. Nice finish however.

Very light drums, nothing like my Signature kit, and the hardware is not heavy link the Horst Link era. Maple Light Designer shells, 6.3mm, 9 ply.

They will not be traveling anywhere but they would be nice to move. Similar in weight to a S Class Pro.

I wish I could get some sound clips. I have a video recorder but its not digital. My dad can transfer stuff to digital. I will see what I can do.

The thought of house insurance has crossed my mind. Now I want everyone to know that I do treasure this kit and in no way do I take it for granted that I even got one. I am so thankful to be allowed to have this piece of history and to play it in my own home.

Spirit of Thomas Lang and Steve Smith live in my drums. They both cliniced my kit. I got it for half price. I am some lucky guy.

I have finally decided to sell my 3003 Special Edition. I at least need to take it down as I am running out of rooms for drums.

I added a secondary hihat on the right. Paiste 502 Bronze. I love the Remo Dejembe and the percussion tree. Its a got lots of percussion potential. Its a dream to play. I still plan to add another splash and china and I await the 8X8 Tom Tom. I play open so I have a nice 20" Zildjian medium ride to the left as well.


The Neil Peart snare is perfect as main snare. The kit it self is just beyond description. Derek Roddy was right, best kit he ever heard or played. Thomas Lang and Steve Smith are two masters who have played my kit...I am the third.
:D

I got a 16 inch Attack head for the floor tom coming. I also got a stand on the way for the
8X8 tom to come.

I have to say that this kit is just freaking incredible to play. It never ceases to blow my mind.

The kit is stunning, all I can say is wow!!! I know you take great pride in knowing that Thomas Lang and Steve Smith actually used those drums, can you get any pics of them on that kit from the clinic they did? Would be nice to hang that puppy up in the room. Anyway, it's beautiful and enjoy.

Simply amazing... Sonor really makes them like none other. I'm not usually a fan of gold hardware, but with that finish it really "makes" the kit.

This continues to be the best thing I ever did for myself. This is the best sounding drum kit I could ever ask for. I still get lost in the sound and dynamics. So open and full with just perfect control. I cannot say enough about the Designers or the wet sound that Ebony gives the shell when its in and out veener. One fantastic piece of art and beauty as well as form and function.

Those drums look like fine "jewlery" !

It must have been nice just unpacking and looking at them for the first time..

Sonor makes great drums alright.

Default I wonder where the other 23 Kits are....

Great Kit JungleLORD!

I have had mine since 8/06 and I love it.

Mine was played by Mylious Johnson of PINK whilst his set was being made by Sonor and as such has the Artist Series Remo heads.

I bought it from a local DS here in San Jose.

I also have the 8" tom and I'm not currently using the 12" tom

Default Re: Sonor Five Star Makassar Ebony Kit

When I got my kit, they had lost the 8 inch tom before I purchased, which I really wanted one, so I had an order for a replacement 8" tom to go with my Designer Five Star Kit. It was not going to have the same badge and that bummed me out. They had misplaced the original at the whareshouse or lost it in transit, after the second clinic. They said that if it turned up, I would get a call.

I really wanted to finish the kit as original......guess what?

Looksee the email I got from Shane at the Five Star Shop in Portland Maine, and Sonor Richmond wharehouse!

Quote:
Want some news?

Sonor actually received back the 8” tom that went with your kit!

I know…it doesn’t make sense to me either. They will cancel the order on the other drum if you want this one. I asked about the condition and got this:

this is about an 8. it has less dings on the hoop than the others did. The wood and lugs look perfect. Has the badge, which was the concern on the other. Biggest knock on it in my opinion, dust on the APS. I would buy it if it was 4 me. I’m a pro-audio guy, and pretty freaking finicky.

Let me know if you want to go this route.
SOLD, SOLD, SOLD.

I am saving money, getting what I wanted and man, I am so blessed. I cannot say enough about how much I love my Designer kit....to luck out enough to get that tom is so freaking cool.


PS, not sure about their review of my kit (dings on the hoop, 8/10 score. yet he says this 8 inch is in better shape), but I really don't see a problem with any of the hoop pieces I got. In fact I saved a ton of money, Thomas Lang and Steve Smith played my kit, so if it has some of their talents rubbed off on the kit, I really feel very lucky. I don't mind saying, yeah Steve Smith put that there, and this, see this, that was Thomas Lang! They did that!

Pics in a week. Man am I happy.

Its in New York state and waiting for me. I should get it tonight I hope, tomorrow for sure. I got the cymbals rearranged and I think just enough space for the new tom preset. I had gotten the Designer tom/cymbal stand from a Sonor Museum member. Ready to go. Pics to follow.
