These are Very nice thin shells and have inner rings and
the combination creates a balance between
the attack with the resonant note of the drum hey this is Sonor correct...
The drums are punchy with a good attack presence but a very warm woody tone
One Kick of the Bass and you start Feeling like Kenny Clarke and the big smile on your
bass players face will go flat!

Massively Hammered cast KRUT " Special" Made in England Cymbals
14" hi hats and 16" crash cymbal
These are quality made cymbals with a nice dark tone good attack and medium decay
with moderate brilliance
The hats are much nicer than the 16" and are actually very very nice indeed
Shells and edges are like new
The Chrome is unlike any of this era and is in excellent condition
on all fittings, hoops,
lugs T's Claws and rods ( see picture 12 for a gleaming example )
2 bottom claws do have some chrome wear and there is a small bit of chrome flaking on the cymbal arm.
Bass hoops are solid with great original finish and complete inlays
Snare drum is equipped with Factory logo wires and as is always the
case missing the
outer cover for the throw off as seen in picture 5, Both the butt end and throw work perfect
Finish is also in Great shape with only a little shrinking on the
bass near the bottom lugs near the
seam and a small chip next to the seam lift on the bass drum bottom as seen in picture 11
Throughout the series of pics you can get a good idea of the low
miles and lack of use of this set of drums
If you ever wanted to try a set of these Classic Sonor drums now is a great chance to get into a great playing collectible.
Vintage Sonor Chrome Rarely Looks this good!
