And that's the reason I like Sonor. Pretty much all of their kits look and sound fantastic. Change the finish to the green equivalent of the finish there and you basically have the set that I've lusted after for a long time.

I think exactly the same thing.
When I see (And ear!) a kit like that I'm not sure if my next kit will be a Sonor or a Gretsch.

Ugh, what an ugly kit... I can't believe the camera didn't break when you took these pictures. how embarassing for you. Well, maybe someday you can get something nicer....

In the meantime, I'd be willing to take it off of your hands if you wanna get it out of your house. I'll even pay shipping.

If any of this reverse psychology is working please pm me and I'll give you my address.

Wow, I got the same config but in Force 3007 serie...
I'm so jealous... BEAUTIFUL !! PERFECT... You got
my dream kit...

...just one thing, how do you do to fix the moongel on
the bass drum head ??? glue ?? I use the stock Sonor
reso with an Evans G1 coated batter and the moongell
is the perfect muffling for my bass drum but I don't want
to tape it...

They just stick by themselves. Try washing and drying yours and they should stick.

Wow GORGEOUS and what a great sound! I have been enjoying my Force 3003 set, but the next up (assuming I don't somehow get my hands on an SQ2) is this Delite, and the walnut roots is absolutely stunning. I love your tunings, especially on the mounted tom, rimshots sound great. Besides the fact that they sound wonderous, how has your experience been with the Fiberskyns in terms of range (pros, cons)? I'm considering getting a pair for at least my toms, but for my set/style I'd tune them higher.

Handsome finish!

I want to get a hardwood floor and bedroom suite that matches that kit.

Thanks for the comments. I like the fiberskins. I think that they sound best tuned in the medium low to medium high range. Very low you lose projection, very high can sound a bit papery as you head a lot of stick impact. But if you are going for a mellow resonant tone they are great heads. I have them tuned 75/75 on the drum dial (bottom is pitched higher as it is not coated) in the recording. from 72 to 80 sounds good to me with these heads so that is a fairly wide range.

That really is beautiful. Is that a veneer?
Thank you. Yes the outer ply is the a wood veneer.

BEAUTIFUL!!

Sonor is it...look at the hardware detail and craftsmanship! Amazing! Now, ...if only they would offer a few more colors in the S Classix, AND...a couple more sizing options in the toms....but .....ain't they sweet! :)

Beautiful set. The ideal minimal setup, especially with those beatiful K cymbals. I really like the fibreskin heads, too.

Not to be a total douchebag, just to clarify a previous question - the Walnut Roots Veneer is composed of engineered wood. That is to say, there is no "Walnut Roots" tree that produces that incredible finish.

Stunning new set!! You finally got a "healthy" one.
The sound of those Sonors is incredible! A great choice to go with one, especially the bass drum sounds awesome.

Did think about tuning the toms a bit higher? I think they`d produce a nice melodic and percussive sound.
