    Good eyes, Sonorkid!

    It is actually a very old Royce drumset (circa 1968) that was originally a gold sparkle which I did a "custom refinish" job on when I was about 15 years old. Can of white laquer spray paint and can of flat black spray paint - took off the bottom heads (they were called "concert" toms back in the day!) and rocked out! I'm actually giving that set away to a very young wannabe drummer (I believe he is 5 or 6) who is the son of a friend of my wife's who's dad will take a little time and fix it up with some new heads and maybe some wrap/finish work. It leaves my house tomorrow night for a new and excited owner!

    My 3007 Maple Kit.



    I also own a Gretsch Catalina Birch 6 piece in Red Cherry Lacquer (best looking kit I own) and a 1981 Slingerland 7 piece kit in white. They all are great drums and have their own special features. All of them sound great but the Maple Sonors are the best for the mellow maple sound so many are looking for. If you are looking for a high end intermediate kit look no further than the Force 3007ís. They blow many of the top end kits away. In fact I have played several DW kits that have nothing over my 3007ís other than price.

    I have a few "not so good" pics in my album. I'm going to try to get some better ones up soon. I absolutely LOVE my 3007's. I have the stage 1 set up, and I'm working on adding 4 additional rack toms in the near future. For the price you can't beat them.

    Yeah, "they" made it into a "sticky"! Coooooool!

    @ Rritter: That Natural Maple kit is totally AWESOME - Love that finish!!

    @ Darklegend: Saweet set... What sizes are you running? 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and an 18? Like the dual snares - I do the same. Couple of quick questions, why the moongels on all the smaller toms and what kind of heads are you using, Remo Ambassadors?

    This doesn't have much to do with the drums literally but how do you pronounce sonor?
    I always hear it pronounced the way it is spelled, but that seems to be the English way. I saw a video once that they made to show there warehouse and they pronounced it "Sunor"

    Hi

    Your site loads very slow and I donít see your profile at all. In fact it pretty much locks up things. Maybe its time to look at a dedicated server and web page? Had I been on dial up it likely would not have loaded at all. Maybe just a bad time of day to log on? I would like to see your drums though.

    Looks good BD. I came really close to going with the Midnite fade when I bought mine. Opted for the Piano black instead. Good looking kit you have there.

    yep, force 3005/3007 (maple) and 2005/2007 (birch) kits sound great and are built like tanks. a good value. high end designer/sq kits are simply beautiful...no value there. them suckers are flat expensive.

    Another beautiful finish. Great looking set up Bish. Odd,,,,but I have two stock BD heads against a wall as well. Those Aquarians bring that drum alive don't they. Fantastic drums, and in my humble opinion, largely overlooked and highly under rated.
