Sonor Drum Kit

by phil mc grane

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?


Greetings, Phil!

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!
