An amazing collection of fine drums. I imagine this collection is worth the cost of a new automobile!

I just hope you have them on video file and covered by your home owners insurance.

I see you are from Germany, do you work for Sonor or affiliated somehow?
Crazy collection, beautiful beautiful drums.

Thanks!
Perhaps a Mercedes Benz "Smart" :-)
But, if somebody from the forum wants to change his Ford Shelby "GR-1 Concept" car into my snares: I'am your man ;-)

Cheers

Thank you!

No, I am unfortunaly no Sonor worker :-) Also I sadly have no extra connection to Sonor. I only live in driving distance to the factory in Bad Berleburg, and bought my first Signature kit direct from the factory in 1994. After that great experience, I was infected by the Sonor virus. During the times I owned many other snares (Pearl, Yamaha, Kirchhoff, Tama, Mapex), but I must say, that Sonor drums are something specially (workmanship, sounding, locking etc.) for me. So you are more than right, I am very Sonor loyal :-)

Cheers

Mick

I will say to you, I respect your brand loyalty that much more knowing you have owned the other brands. Not simply a blind loyalty. I am a hobby drum builder, so I know quite a bit about the process and keep an eye on what is offered out there. I have always believed Sonor to be the best of the big guys for quality control. They also make wicked sounding drums. If I was flush with cash, there would be a set of Pro Lites in my collection.

I'm not usually into the idea of collecting drums, but that's quite impressive. Very nice.
