That's 100% a Sonor Force 200X. Exact same finish as my 2001s, but I have a Floor Tom instead of a mounted (Those are fusion sizes correct?) My old pedal had the exact same beater come to think of it.

I know they made the same finish in a later 2003 version of the drums, so it might be the 2003?

Edit: As for the price, I pad $500 for my kit including the hardware. I searched several ads and forums before making the purchase, and for the most part, everyone got them at around $500. I believe at one point the retail was $649 @ MusiciansFriend (just google to find out I guess) but they don't make them anymore.

A nice shot from our last gig:



Doesn't show all that much of the kit, but I thought it looked cool. The kit is a Force 3005.

I took the pictures with my laptop camera so they really don't do it justice. It is maple and it is the sweetest thing I've ever played. Snap, Crack-le, Pop!

I'll answer. The Sonor Artist Amboina snare features a 12 ply heavy maple shell 8 mm thick. The dimensions are 13x7".

I can attest to the quality. You can see some nice photos on my gear thread.

Does anyone own a Steve Smith signature snare yet? I am seriously considering buying one.

Also again: I am considering an S Classix kit over a Delite. Thoughts?

I hear some people saying that the S Classix actually sound better than the Delites.

That seems slightly odd being the SC's are Birch and the D's are Maple but who knows?.

Nothing wrong with birch. I happen to be a fan, but most drummers seem to like maple a bit more.

Theres no doubt in my mind that the SCs are epic either way.

That looks EXACTLY like my friend's force 2003 kit. If that's the case probably not a massive amount i'm afraid, maybe about 2-300?

That is indeed a 2003. The lugs and the wax finish say as much. If it's a wrap, it'll be a 1003, but that looks like a 2003.

A very decent kit actually. Birch/Basswood. I was considering a 3003 for a long while a few years back, but bought a mid-level Tamburo instead.

A 2003 is probably worth a maximum of about 350 these days, but it is a very good kit, as were the 1003's, which are probably worth a bit less. It's a low figure, but a very decent kit.

Many thanks. The birch kit does appeal. I had a fiddle with an S Classix snare the other day and it had that classic old Sonor sound. Very much like the Phonic snare of mine. Scandinavian birch is not to be sneezed at. Sonor has a long history with birch. I am leaning towards S Classix seriously.

I am ordering a new kit tomorrow. An S Classix in Grained maple finish (I think), 10, 12, 14 x 14, 16 x 16, 22" kick. 14 x 5" snare. I will also order a Steve Smith snare with it.

I am tossing up between Rosewood and Grained maple.

Can't wait to see the final product Wy! Just wondering something though, what exactly is the difference between SQ2 and S Clasix?

The main difference betwee the S Classix and SQ2 is that the SQ2 can be ordered to the customer's specific preference with regard to shell type and thickness, hardware choice etc. Whereas the Delite and S Classix are specific lines.

I have decided on grained maple. It will probably take 6 months to arrive. I am also checking into the Steve Smith snare.

Welcome to Australia. I have seen people wait 8 months for a Pearl Reference. Only so many shipment orders are placed each year. We are a long way from Europe and shipping costs are high. So a supplier does as few orders each year as he can. I recall a guy waiting 14 months for a Sonor kit.

Six months isn't all that bad. A custom Tama Starclassic kit would take almost 4 months for a customer in the states. And you'd think they'd be alot quicker....

pearl takes 8~12 months to ship to aus

sonor is 6months

tama, yamaha, mapex (and most of the rest) about 3~4 months.

also if you get axis pedals here and you want a part that breaks/becomes missing from axis i know a person who has been waiting well over 12 months now for ONE screw on his long boards.

it's funny. the distributer for axis calls the guys at axis in america 'a bunch of californian hicks'

no offence to any americans ofcorse.

I have to say I like the Greb signature snare, 13x5.75" beech with what looks like German hardware. Which I hope means the drum is made in Germany. I have not bought the Danny Carey snare because its made cheaply in China.

Does anyone have the Smith and Greb snares yet?

Love my SONOR S-Classix kit. Best sounding drums I have ever owned, and I have owned and played Ludwig, Pearl, Yamaha, Slingerland and Rogers. I must also convey how easy they have been to tune both for live shows and the studio. I did however end up getting a 6.5" Pork Pie metal snare but still use the SONOR snare as a side snare. I use all Aquarian heads with the exception of the snare which I still use a Remo coated Ambassador. The only drum I dampen is the is the 16" floor tom with a small ring, sounds great and the kick using the Aquarian pre dampened batter/resonant heads, very fat sound.

Does anyone have the Smith and Greb snares yet?
I have played the Benny Greb snare and it is very nice, however almost $900 for a snare drum in my opinion is just plain silly!!!
How many of these things do they really sell for that price?
I could go get a Black bueaty and a Supra 402 and possibly have money left over for new heads and sticks.
Non the less great snare!
I'm just bitter.
Here's my S Classix, love them best drums I have ever owned, can't see myself ever selling them. wish they didn't discontinue this finish, timeless I think.

Here's some pics of my Sonor Delite in Birdseye Cherry. There's another kick drum, but I am not going to use it. Sizes are 8 / 10 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 16 / 18 / 22 / 22 / 5.5 x 14. It sounds completely amazing with the clear ambs and stock reso's. I have a new set of Aquarian Super2 clears and Ambs for resonant...not sure if I'm even gonna put them on. Should I?

I need new snare and kick skins though...

Also, got a boat load of hardware including some designer boom stands (in pics), 600-series hardware, and 400-series hardware. I'll be posting stuff for sale within the next week.

Default 1965/2003 Sonor

New to DrummerWorld and was inspired to share. Bought this 65 red marble kit in 76 and had it ever since - embarrassed about the crap cymbals and the previous owner must have hated the make since the badges were missing. (anyone got some I can buy?) The one tom is same year but must have been ordered extra as the wrap doesn't match. The 3003 with paragons bought recently for my son and now looking at an S-Classix Walnut Roots new to spoil myself.
