Another beauty!
I agree with scorch, I like the finish on your Jazz kit slightly more.
I wouldn't throw those out of my bed though :)

Awesome! Not my favourite finish, but still a beauty!

Love the pic with the Ikea sticker - looks like you got your wooden drums from there, LOL!

Lol this is not a sticker... It's a ruler in inches "vs" centimeter.

I think I prefer this darker finish to your lighter kit, but both look great. Nice also that Sonor take the trouble to finish the inside in the same style. I do like Sonor's German stuff :)

That kit looks fantastic! Congrats! :D

Just a question though how does the 20" deep bass drum sound like?

The sound of the bass drum 22"x20" is very deep, with impressive bass !!!

You can choose your inside finish between "standard" maple and all finishes that are available outside, too! Pretty cool, isn't it!

Yes, nice attention to detail, that I take to be indicative of overall pride in the product. Certainly most preferred to slapping some silver paint on the inside of the shells to cover up shitty wood/finishing, then pretending it's some wonder treatment ;)

Of course, I prefer solid wood, but Sonor runs a close second for me. Honestly, if my preferred option didn't exist, I'd be playing a thin shell German made Sonor.

Thank you :) although the look is a product of function, as it's the sound that's top of the list.

I love Sonor drums. From both a player's POV, &, IMO, from an engineering excellence POV, they're a class apart from other offerings in the same price range. For me, perhaps only Tama's high end offerings getting close.

You're absolutely right.
SONOR SQ rates are not so high if it is compared with the DW Exotic finish series or the PEARL Masterwork series

TAMA is not my favorite brand ... if I can I prefer to buy products made ​​in Europe rather than in Asia.

SONOR currently only offers wood finishes for the interior of drums but soon it will be possible to choose a black satin paint finish for the inside.

I agree, although I'm not that bothered the manufacturing location per se.

This is not really the problem of locating manufacturing but rather the care and serious production.
I found less serious productions for TAMA and the sound is not what I prefer...

I've always respected the craftsmanship of Tama's Japan facilities over that of their China production. Just better sounding, better looking with much more attention to detail. Since sending their flagship Starclassic Maple drums to China, sales on that product have decreased significantly. At least you can still buy Starclassic Bubinga drums that are manufactured in Japan, they now call them "Elite" although at a significant price increase over the China "standard" contenders.

To keep this thread on track, I've played the Sonor SQ2 drums and l them. My favorite Five Star shop has two kits in stock. Two people from the store were just over to the Sonor plant in Germany and related to me that their workers are very detailed oriented and have a real sense of accomplishment. If I were to buy an SQ2 set of drums, it would be the same finish, but with a 22" bass drum.

Heyyyyy. I like my silver sealer and for 19.95 I will send you the formula. Act fast and today only I will send you the formula twice, with charge only for additional handling.

On this set the bass drum is in heavy shell, tom and floor tom are in thin shell.
The bass drum is amazing, very deep sound with infra bass and a beautiful resonance...
The tom and floor tom have a little bit more projection and power than the vintage shell but the Sonor heads aren't very good I must change all of them.

Little update with a MEINL Cajate PM-1 and a DW 9000













I also put foam under the floor tom to get more resonance (the result is stunning and cheaper than foot Pearl LG-40)
