    Cool/Nice/Interesting Drum Rooms/Studios?

    The bass frequencies are your biggest enemy, likely. Mid and highs can be attenuated and dealt with by using deflectors, batting, etc. Bass frequencies travel through the materials most used in light construction. The floors are usually a big culprit in this regard. Thin concrete footings in a...

    studio floor & wall materials & applications.....

    I'll echo what dcrigger does it sound right now? Are you looking to record full bands in there? Just drums? Singers? Horns? Probably the most bang for your buck is to create some dense, movable sound screens that can be placed where you need them and in the corners as bass traps in...

    Sonor Force... any good?

    Yes, I think for those sizes and what he'll have $650 is a pretty good price. Now, it might not sell off fo double that down the road, but what a great kit for the price as long as you know what you're getting. :)

    Sonor Force... any good?

    I'll throw in on this. That is a good price for a set of drums in those sizes if you like what the limitations are: old hardware (made in Taiwan not the same German Phonic/Sig hardware), old finish (thin to begin with), shells are maple in/out with plies of mystery meat in between, non virgin...

    Beech Drums

    Also, the more recent Ascent series is beech. I have owned many many beech Sonor kits. I think with beech traditional sized toms give tons of warmth and attack. Generally, beech isn't as loud as birch or maple, so some people in loud situations might like the power sizes of the Performer and...

    Drum Recording Questions

    Depending on the drum sound you're looking for, I'd recommend trading out "overheads" for more of a room mic setup if possible. This will give you the air and natural reverb you'll likely want. Play with mic placement on those to get a natural sound you like or even a crazy effect (if one is...

    Any Sonor Drummers here?

    Oh yeah, Sonor baby. The best. Here's me blissfully playing a nice old Black Phonic kit I once owned. 20x18 deep virgin bass drum! I can't believe I sold that drum...I've said that phrase too many times.

    Sonor D505 Steel Snare questions

    I recently used the INDe strainer and butt on an old 5x14 Sonor snare with the same butt. I had to enlarge the holes ever so slightly on the butt holes (heehee). I used a high quality step bit to do it, but a file might have worked. I didn't want to risk the chrome flaking at the holes, so step...

    My first sonor kit ever

    Congrats on the kit! I've owned A LOT of Sonor drums and I never fell in love with the birch tones. I found birch bass drums hard to get "my" tone out of. The Lites and 3000 toms always had lots of cut, but I could never get them to sound warm enough for me--BEECH! is my fave. That said Sonor...
