Sonor Vintage series Drum Kits Land at Drum Shop UK

Posted by Andy Anderson on 16th November 2015

The eagerly awaited Sonor vintage series drum kits

Blown away is not the word I would use to describe these drum kits. Yes this is why I come to work everyday to be totally inspired by drums which to me have pride built into them, these drums ooze quality, craftsmanship, passion, vintage feel and most of all the sound that Sonor have simply got right. Its no wonder the likes of Steve Smith, Benny Greb, Gavin Harrison, Tomas Haake choose Sonor but to name a few.

The Sonor Vintage drums speak for themselves as proven at this years NAMM 2015 show winning best in class. The drum kit which hosts 'teardrop lugs' is nothing new for Sonor as they introduced I believe the Teardrop drums by Sonor way back in the day, if I'm wrong I'm sure I shall be corrected as Sonor drum fans are pretty ruthless when making mistakes about their drums ;-) The look of these drums I must admit had me the moment I set eyes on them in Los Angeles at the Anaheim NAMM show. Although there are various colours the black had me, it looked stunning and surprisingly looked vintage which I found unusual for a black drum kit. Sonor are offering various colours from my favourite the Black correct name Vintage Onyx, Vintage Pearl and Vintage Natural.

Sonor have done a very cool video for these kits which I have popped on this blog for your enjoyment.

When these drums arrived with us within 5 minutes the first drum kit was sold and was not even taken out of the boxes. This week sees us traveling to London to exhibit our shop with Yamaha drums, Istanbul Mehmet cymbals, Sakae drums, Dream Cymbals, Ludwig drums and of course Sonor drums hence we will have these wonderful drums on our Sonor drums booth at the London Drum Show 2015 so they will be available to see, touch and play on our booth.

The drums comprise of a Beech shell which has a rounded bearing edge which has more drum head to shell contact which results in a fatter sound giving less resonance than you would find with a standard 45 degree bearing edge which is more commonly used, yet still resonant and sounds dry just like that drum sound from yesteryear on the old Vinyl record, that's my opinion anyway ;-)

To sya I am looking forward to setting up this drum kit at the London Drum Show is an understatement and my cymbals of choice will be the Istanbul Mehmet Tony Williams cymbals, although Tony was a Gretsch man I'm sure he would have approved of this wonderful drum set....

Anyway thanks for reading and here's a few video's for your viewing pleasure....
