I'm playing Sonor drums for 20 years now.
I started at the age of 10 with a second-hand set, but I didn't know which brand it was. After 10 years (!) I discoverd the very small Sonor logo on the bassdrum spurs. Before, I always thought I was playing a Rogers set... I don't know which type of set it was and I can't find it on your website, so hopefully I can send you some pictures of that set soon (must have them somewere in a photo album...)
Proud as I was I bought me a brandnew Force 2000 set (nice collection of
pictures are coming your way!), together with a Designer snare.
Designer Snare: 14x5, Maple light
Bassdrum and toms in white, snare in stain green
Why a stain green snare? It was my intention to buy a complete stain green Designer set but, euh..., well..., it was to expensive. So I bought the snare with the intention to buy the entire set later..... and I did! ... not in stain green, but in stain blue (I couldn't wait and my music store had one in stain blue...).
And, YES, I am proud and happy to play the Designer set, I won't change it for another one!!
(or yes, perhaps a DW or Slingerland if it's for free)
Setup: (Maple Light shells)
Snare: still the same: 14x5
Hardware: Sonor 5000 series, Pearl, DW (5000 twin pedal) and Dixon.
My next dream? A Delite or Jungle set (can't choose!)...
