Here is my 1965 Sonor Teardrop Chicago kit. I bought the kit from the original owner and it cleaned up nicely.

That's an incredible complete kit. It's a bit heartbreaking I couldn't have gotten to mine before the carnage - great to see some originals! Your chrome doesn't even look pitted..thought that was a bit of a problem on these in humid locales..?

I have a thread over in "General Discussion" about issues with my Sonor Artist snare - featuring the same gold clips as on yours pictured. How long have you had it? Any problems? If you could reply to my tread (Sonor product support issues) over there I would be very grateful.

Beautiful looking kit btw!!

I just love it! I have not heard Sonor kits from that era. How does it compare with equivalent US kits?

Just bought this two Thursdays ago on June 9th, 2011 in a driveway in deep South Jersey. It now lives in Brooklyn.

Sonor Phonics (Plus? — credited to a member named Barry) previously purchased in 1984.

I'll reupload a newer picture with my cymbals and setup once it is cleaned up and ready. Consider this the Before picture.

Sonorous!

Man - That's a nice kit and colour a la Bonham style! I bet the sound is great as well.
What type of drum heads, do you use?

Here some pics from my collection and from Sonor drums I restored, enjoy it!


Champion, wrapped, not original finish


Superchampion, thick shells (9-ply) with round bearing edges, one of the best sounding drums I have ever played, original drumheads!


Performer, nice drums for less money, the best entry level drumset ever made.


Champion acryl, looks better than it sounds...


A red one with customized bearing edges, a great live kit.


Hilite in blackdiamond, a fantastic colour.


Phonic Rosewood with Lite bassdrum


Phonic Rosewood Anniversary, itīs now in New York.


Another beauty...


Phonic Plus in candy apple red.


Phonic Plus in oak veneer, the heavy metal charger


Sonor Signature, a beech monster!


Sonorlite, my favourite Sonor set.

^^^ Awesome kits Hilite. I keep saying someday.. I wish I would have bought a big ol' Phonic plus way back when, they'd at least be paid for by now...

Hi Guys, I just received shipment of my Sonor Delite Walnut Brown Burst Kit.

10x8 TT
12x9 TT
14x14 FT
16x16 FT
22x20 BD
14x5 SN

I'm thrilled with the finish and equally impressed with the sound! The kick has ridiculously massive punch and tone.

Happy Times...........

Hilite: What an array of outstanding kits. I'm liking the Super Champion the best.
Very classy, and the Fibreskin is a must.

Mr Slam: Wow, what a knockout. As good as it gets right there.
That 22x20" virgin kick is perfection.

Now I hope you both dont just show off and leave. ;)

No, donīt worry, I'd like to share my knowledge about Sonor with other drummers.

And also I'm a big fan of Ludwig, Rogers and Paiste cymbals.

The Superchampion was the mother of the Phonic series, the
toms are very special, they sound a little bit like barking dogs...

@Mr.Slammage
Your walnut brown burst Delite is a wet dream for Sonorholics.

Thanks for stickin around!. The jury's still out about the other guy. ;)

It figures you'ld like Luddies too. Good taste.

I am a fan of Sonor but I cant afford a "real" one. I have a 3007 that is a pretty nice lil kit, especially for $650.
There was a new in boxes 6pc Sonor Delite in Champagne Sparkle for sale for only $2500 OBO round these parts not too long ago. not saying much here, only that I'm bummed I didnt get it.

I got my eyes on a sweet little DW though. Fingers crossed.

Yeah, I'm wrapped with the Walnut Burst finish. I'm getting used to the tuning of a delite as the shells seem to resonate a warmer tone than that of my previous kits;

Force 3007 - Red Burst
S Class Pro - Grained Maple
S Class - Denim (Maple/Birch) - SOLD
HiLite Exclusive - Black & Copper - SOLD

I'm hoping once the heads have stretched a bit and seated nicely to the bearing edge, I'll get a true indication of what I can achieve tonaly with my new Delite.

I've been using the 3007's for gigs, they can be tuned up to sound freakin amazing!

Hey Folks, I just joined the Sonor Club today.

I came across a pretty decent deal for a Sonor Force 3007. I was looking at the new Select Force kits that were coming out but I couldn't pass up this deal, there was some extras which I thought were worth getting. I will be selling my early 2000 Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage to help fund this kit.

This is what the kit came with.
  • Finish: Autumn Fade
  • Kick 20"
  • Toms 10, 12, 14 Floor tom
  • Snare 14x5.5
  • Snare (Pearl Picolo snare 13x3)
  • All Original Hardware
  • 1ea Extra Supra Boom Stand
  • MP Tambourine Attachment
  • 13" Sabian AA Hi-Hats
  • 16" Sabian AA Medium Crash
  • 22" Zildjian Avedis Ride (Vintage)
  • Samboro Luggage with wheels for hardware
  • RacketeX Cases for All Toms, snare and Kick Drum
  • Sabian cymbal Bag (Fits all three)
  • Vater Stick Holder
  • Pro Mark Stick Bag

Since I play all Paiste Twenty's I'll be selling the hats and the crash...the Ride, I'm not sure yet, it's pretty beat up but I kinda dig the sound.

I thought I'd add recent pics of my Sonor S-Class Pro to the mix. While it's not a brand-new SQ2, it still sounds dang good. Specs to follow soon. I apologize for the less than great quality pics.

Just bought this Sonor Safari kit the other day for only $289 at Sam Ash after a $50 Columbus Day coupon. 16x16 bass drum, 8x10 tom, 12x14 floor tom, 5x14 snare. Sounds just killer! Great for rehearsals & small gigs.

What kind of mounts do you have for the kick and floor tom? Never seen those before, do they only fit that lug style? It looks pretty stable holding that cymbal too, I always shyed away from rides and toms on smaller kicks because of the wobbly nature of one point of contact.
