I grew up on a remote Island, a 5 hours ferry ride from the continent. We didn't have that many shops back then so we mostly did our shopping through the Sears Catalog. I KNOW that lusting and wanting is often greater than having. (Even more so when having means having crap from Sears!!!)Personally, this is the one Sonor kit, in the one Sonor wrap, I lust after in a life otherwise blessed with equanimity.
But for you, my friend:
Is this what you want, or do you now think you want it because it is there? Is this kismet or opportunism?
“After a time you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical but it is often true.”

BUT, on the other hand:
Beech, California beech! Some fine beeches, too.

Amen to that. I would spend hours with the Sears catalog, examining every. single.toy.I grew up on a remote Island, a 5 hours ferry ride from the continent.

But we're NOT talking about crap from Sears...
I don't think you'd regret your purchase one bit. I have a shell bank of the first run of the Vintage Series (Natural finish), and they are marvelous drums. Easy to tune, and they easily manage to balance the "vintage" sound with the more modern "attack" sound. And they look cool.But in a corner was a Vintage series California Blue 13-16-22 that he's been stuck with for the last two years, maybe three. I looked at it and said "You know if it was red I would have bought it in a heartbeat". To wich he answered: "And if I'd give you 1200$ off would you still buy it?"
I agree with you.nobody agrees with me, but I like a whole set to sound like the whole set.
(and that includes the snare)
Well this wasn't just about ME, i said it then and I'll repeat it now: if I just wanted empty "likes" to stroke my ego, I can always post stuff on my band's social media and have access to tens of thousands of "friends" that will thumbs up and praise anything I put there. This is NOT what that was about.
i was working at Murat’s shop last week . It is sitting on the shelf . Call the shop(905) 503-7300 and they can give you the details . If you message Drummer’s hangout through email Murat can probably throw a deal your way .I went on the Drummer's hangout site and this snare isn't listed. Maybe it isn't up to date.
Well, everybody has seen a the Sonor Vintage in California blue right? And I figured I'd save it for after the potential purchase, in wich case, trust me, it's gonna be pics galore...I scrolled through all 3 pages of this thread mostly just to see a pic of the alleged drum set and found none. What a rip off.
