A couple of days ago I received the second Drum Design kit to hit America, as you will see by the pictures Sonor has reasserted itself as the premier custom drum company on the planet. The only thing that surpasses the visual appeal is the sonic spectrum that these drums are capable of. They are a hybrid of sorts; I designed them to blend the sound and look of the legendary Sonor Special Edition series while integrating the advancements of the Designer series mounting and isolation systems. The shells are 12 ply, 9 mm thick maple core with African Bubinga veneer inside and out finished with a high gloss lacquer. I removed every rim, lug and screw to expose the bare shell only to find total perfection, the bearing edges sharp and true, the hole drills carefully and clean, the lacquer finish applied like a sheet of glass and the inner veneer puts this kit over the top! I’ve also sent the rest of my Sonor kits and snare’s for the update, thanks Scott and have a blessed day.
