    Default building my own custom kit slowly

    So 10 months in as a beginner and I feel I want to move from my electronic kit and eventually phase to a real acoustic kit.

    Particularly I would like to get (breakables) that I can take to jam nights, gigs,etc
    Building up all the nice components to a really good kit.

    So for the last couple of months I've been looking at snares in particular

    This one, by sonor, seems to be my style looks wise and budget/quality

    Plan to use it for most genres of music, I.e rock, funk, heavy rock but rarely heavy metal these days lol

    Just wondering what people's thoughts are. Good snare?

    If you like the looks and the sound then it's the right snare for you. Sonor makes nice drums. I like the tube lugs.
    TAMA- '99 Starclassic, '86 Granstar, '88 Granstar,
    '93 Rockstar
    Gretsch- late 50's Round Badge
    Zildjian K & K Custom (with a couple A's and a Wuhan China)
    Evans
    Remo
    Vic Firth
    Speed Cobra double pedal
    Starcast mounting system (including floor toms and snare)
    Hardware- TAMA and Gibraltar
    Snare Drums- various TAMA, Gretsch, Ludwig, Leedy, Wurlitzer

    That's a good looking drum. I've never heard a bad Sonar snare drum, actually. I think you'll be pleased with it!

    It looks nice.

    You need to find a drum shop and actually give them a bash, from there you will know if you want a plywood shell, fibreglass shell, stave drum or solid one piece unit.

    Then go price hunting
