Default Sonor Signature, Pasite Spirit of 2002

I added the Starman reso from the 3003 kit to the Signature kit and changed up the stave snares. I put the Zebrawood on here instead of the Purpleheart/Paduk just to see which is better suited for the job. I think the Purpleheart/Paduk is better for the job. It sounds like Copelands snare from the Police.

I recall seeing those big deep Sonor Bubina outer/inner veneer drums back in the early 80's at a local shop for $$$$ money way back then. Impressive large kit and very thick and heavy as I remember.

Got my own dream kit version of 9 ply Bubinga paradise recently in the form of a Peace Kahuna jazz shell pack which are minatures in comparison size wise to these big old Sonor drums.

I've seen your kit a few times now, and I am loving it. I just can't help asking why you are using remo pinstripes?

They were the heads originally sold on the drums. Horst Link believed this combination was a wonderful match to these very special shells. You dont put them on many drums with great results, but you do with this kit. Next time I will put on Attack 2 Ply Heads.

Yes I remember the big Sonor Bubinga veneer kit I saw similar to yours way back when was all equiped with pinstrips too. Not my favorite heads to say the very least but sounded good on that kit as I remember.

First thing I did on my Peace 9 ply Bubingas was replace the supplied pinstrips with coated ambassadors and it was really like someone turned the sonic light switch on with giving them a sharp,percussive,responsive and warm full tone and sound.

Wonder what these Sonor big boys would sound like with a similar changeover of heads to coated ambassador batter heads just out of curiousity.

That was my first choice for the kit and it never was the right heads for these drums. I thought coated ambassadors would be great....I was wrong.

Must have a direct relation to the size and thickness of the shells regarding these Sonor big boys then junglelord in preference to the pinstripes over coated ambassadors.

I cant stop thinking of that snare drum. Paiste spirit of 2002, I love it when Josh Freese plays it. How is it on real life? lol.
By the way, where did you get it? I can't find it anywhere on the intenet (I'm spanish, and there it's much cheaper). The 14x8" is that snare right? or is the zebra one?

Thanks.

Javo.

14X8 is the Signature Snare
14X6.5 is the Spirit of 2002
13X5 is the Zebra wood Stave

I only got it two weeks ago. Its a keeper. Its so sensitive and you hear every ghost note. I think it would be nicer with a Ambassador Coated on there instead of Evans G2. It has a warm ring to it. It sounds like no other metal shell I have tried. Its heavier then the Rush DW Edge. Now thats heavy.

I added the Canopus Zelkova as the side snare on the beast.
I call him Mr Solid

Bad ass! I love seeing big kits still. I really really dislike 3 and 4 piece kits with a passion and have always loved the old sonors, especially since they are so heavy. Rock on!
