Beech wood is were it's at IMO! Scandanavian Birch is allegedly their best!Oh yeah. It’s funny because until last year, I had always thought Sonor kits were kinda garbage since the only kits that ever came into my studio were newer and not German made. Nothing notably awful sounding but unimpressive generally.
During lockdown I started going down the rabbit hole on their drums and scored a mismatched Sonorlite kit that sounds incredible! Sadly, the kick is 24” so a little too slow for a lot of the faster stuff I play and record but wow is it fun to play!
It hasn’t eclipsed my 90s starclassic birch kit, but it is close for sure
I've owned, heavy beech sq2, vintage beech sq2, s classix, delite, maple light designers, sonic plus(jungle kit) and a safari. I have a favorite of the bunch and it was maybe the best all around kit I've ever owned but I'm curious as to which kit you like the most, if you even have a favorite? SONOR drums are hard to beat in the ply shell category.I am.
