WOW... That is very, very sexy. I am loving the looks of your kit, and it is a totally great setup. Very very nicely put together. I would simply love to play a setup like this. I'm totally jealous. Those snares, too-- you can certainly take your pick. Almost one for every day of the week!

Amazing kit and great snares. Snare are so addicting. "hello my name is Robert and I am a snare addict" ;-)

That Tama snare looks like same finish as the old Superstar Super Mahogany finish

I love it

Wow, when I saw the first pic of the kit I thought it`d be a Cherry Red Sonor Designer. Haha, great that Sonor put on these new lugs, they do look more exclusive now.

Anyway, the 3007 line is beautiful sounding and looking, good choice with that white bass drum reso head. What type is it?

Oh yeah, and those snare drums are totally sweet!!

I really looove that kit. I was wondering the other day if it would look cool, a set with the "woody-look" of the Unix that is being built, but then with a 22,8,10,12,14,16 set (my prefered sizes).
Offcourse your set is nothing like the Unix but it looks super sexy!

I love the Pearl snare too, that's really a work of art in itself.

Nice looking set up you got going there, I really like your snare collection to. Interesting place you got your kit set up in, is that your practice studio?

Cyber props man, that kit is really great, you can see how much thought has been put into its setup. Almost as impressive as your kit is your snare collection, the Reference, SC and the Supra are a trio that well.....I don't know! Out of the 6, which one do you like best?

Hello Robert, got room for one more?
I think this is it for snares for a while. Sometimes in an hour I will play 3 of them, I really like having a small selection. I need help!

Hi Karl, its a Coated Ambassador. All the tom heads are Coated Ambassadors, Clears underneath. The kick on the batter side is a Powestroke 3.

I love it. It has a nice wash, is dark, and works real well as a ride too.

I guess you can say that...it's my basement, and I do practice there, but nothing like a studio! The good thing is I don't have walls to deal with.

I've changed my setup many times. It'll likely stay this way for a while. I may move some cymbals around, but I don't think the drums will change much. I really like having the 8" low and close to the snare.

Right now I'm spending a lot of time on the Supra as it's the newest. The Reference is sweet, as is the Pearl Maple. Sometimes the Starclassic is my favorite...that's beauty of having a few to choose from.

Thanks, I have a great time, but I'd have a great time on any kit I think. I just love the drums.

You have a great kit, beautiful.
I have a 6 piece Force 3007 in the natural maple finish and I’m loven my new kit. I’ve been playing since 1964 and the new Sonor kit is awesome. I retired my Gretsch Catalina Birch kit to put the Sonor kit in our show with no regrets. Great Drums!

PS I now have Emperors on the toms, Ambassador on the snare, and a PS3 on the bass.

The Wuhan’s are great. I have several Zildjian’s that date back to 1964 but for a bright, cutting cymbal the Wuhan’s are hard to beat. These cymbals are also very loud, much louder than any of my Zildjian’s. If you like the sound of the A Custom but money is an issue check them out. As for the China, well it’s a Wuhan China. Trashy as you would expect and want.

You don’t have to spend a fortune to have great cymbals with the Wuhan’s. Are they good for everyone? Likely not but for classic rock and country they work great.

She's a beauty rritter! If I had to choose a colour other than red maple I'd choose natural just like yours. Next time you're in need of new heads I recommend the Ambassadors.

i concur,

i have a pack of wuhans myself and the s series you cant beat for the price.

already giged with them and they sound great live.. the hats are great but theyre not as bright as zildjians.. but nontheless for b20 you cant beat 220 plus shipping

I'm really digging that 8" tom down in the "hole" there. That's the 2nd kit I have seen like that.
Beautiful kit, cymbals, and setup!!

Thanks for the recommendation. I have thought about the Ambassadors because of just how good the kit sounded with the stock Remo UT heads. The Emperor heads are fantastic heads and I have used them for quite some time on my Gretsch Birch kit. As an option to you I would recommend the emps. If you like a lower tuned drum but still have the tone and resonance from the drum I doubt there is any better, just tune then wide open and enjoy all the Sonor maple shells have to offer. Evans G2 would likely be comparable alternative.

I did have clear emps when I first got the kit, but I've never tried coated. I'll give them a shot eventually, thanks!
