    Sonor SQ2 wait times

    I'm drooling over here. That's just about my dream kit right there.

    What's up with Sonor's marketing decisions?

    It's not an intentional thing. They make a product to a certain standard without downstream considerations. As a result all kinds of outside factors interpose themselves between the drum maker and the drummer, trade agreements and stupid things like that. But honestly this kind of problem is...

    Happy October - Show us your Monster

    The coolest thing about this kit is the little kick drum mounted on an upside down horizontal snare basket

    @jda can't say I know JDA, some of those ads are older than I am :)

    What's up with Sonor's marketing decisions?

    If I was going to buy a high end German Sonor it couldn't be anything other than beech.

    If you haven't ever played an AQ2, try to find one at a store to demo, preferably one with the factory heads replaced with something good. You might be surprised.

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    That's a pretty good idea. I can find AQ2 lugs easy but none of them seem to come with the rubber gaskets, so with the leg brackets, so cannibalizing an AQ1 may be the better route. Hardware parts are exactly the same as AQ2. Probably wouldn't save any money but would be a lot easier than...

    Cool huge vintage Tama kit

    The old "I don't really want to sell it, I just want to show it off" price

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    Yeah hoops would probably take it to $600 - these are all top end estimates though and it would probably be less, especially if I could find a way to do a hardware bundle from Thomann or something. As far as harvesting random hardware goes, I'm trying to build a drum that matches my kit as...

    Cool huge vintage Tama kit

    I can think of plenty to do with it all, but at an average of $1000 per drum? Cost-benefit ratio is off.

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    The Nordic shell I have mocked up right now (18x17, maple, 8-ply/5.4mm) is $163, plus $24.00 for bearing edges, then tax and shipping. It would be worth the extra $ to not have to cut an inch off and then put a new bearing edge on.

    Thanks I hadn't been able to find out a ton about Nordic but the stuff on their website looks fantastic.

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    Funny again, I blew right past a pinstripe and stuck an Evans Hydraulic on one. It gets a nice thud but ends up sounding more like a kick than a tom and the pitch is barely changed.

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    You know its funny because I actually do have two matching 16x15s (in use on two different kits currently) but I like it JAW as is so tough to go any lower. The reason I'm kind of fixated here is because I want a shell bank that is as expansive as possible, for as many situations as possible...

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    This is interesting: https://www.posteror.com/1970-s-slingerland-sound-king-era-floor-tom-18x17-walnut-lacquer-tom The title says 18x17 but description lists the diameter 13"? Probably a mistake. I got a lot more results when I googled "18x17 floor tom -sonor"

    Where to get custom shell blanks?

    I've been looking and it must be an oddball size because the only ones I see are new SQ1s. If you happen to see one, ping me.
