Sonor Drum Kit

I'm going to purchase a double bass drum kit.
its a Sonor kit: two bass drums;four mounted toms;
one floor tom; a snare drum; two boom stands; snare stand; hi-hat stand.
1. Would you recommend Sonor?
2. Is 2300 euro a bit dear?
This was a difficult question to answer. I found only one Sonor double bass set. It was at the Sonor German website--and no price available.
Single bass Sonor sets are selling at Musician's Friend for around $999. US Dollars (list price-around $1500)
Here is the spec list:
* F27 2017 bass drum 20" x 17-1/2"
* F27 1405 snare drum 14" x 5-1/2"
* F27 1008 tom 10" x 8"
* F27 1209 tom 12" x 9"
* F27 1414 floor tom 14" x 14"
* DTH 275 double tom holder
Drum Hardware HS 275 Hardware Set 200
* Hi-Hat: HH 274
* Snare Drum Stand: SS 277
* Mini Boom Stand: MBS 273 (2x)
* Bass Drum Single Pedal: SP 473
So--you will have to decide whether the extra bass ,two extra mounted toms, and additional boom stand are worth and additional $2375.00 US (1,618.63 EUR).
You did not mention whether it is a new or used set, so that will enter into the picture also.
It is a lot of money, but if you like the set--it is probably worth it. I thought the Sonor double bass set looked very nice--and it IS made by Hohner, which is a very reputable company.
Hope this helps and Good Luck with your new drums!
