Re: This is the Display Your Sonor Drums Thread

Hi frankie,

Nice kit. I see that you are using my ca 1958 kit to illustrate a "transition kit". I am cool with that. However, I think "early teardrop" is more appropriate, since - except for...

Re: Sonor Teardrop Spur Mount

Fairy dishwashing liquid and water. It is very good for cleaning chrome and metal parts, and I suppose it would eat through rust too. You soak stuff in it overnight.

Re: Sonor Teardrop Spur Mount

My bad about the bolt. My kit is quite a bit older than yours, so obviously the design changed in the interim.

I agree with Oddball that you should try soaking the whole assembly in some solvent...

Re: Sonor Teardrop Spur Mount

Yeah, these very early teardrops don't pop up very often. I was lucky to get my hands on one - and the same age as myself, funnily enough!

Re: Sonor Teardrop Spur Mount

That is a cymbal and/or spur mount from an early teardrop bass drum, like mine from 1958. The wing bolt is not original, though. The mount is the same as the cymbal mount on the attached pics of my...

Re: My 1980s 14x6.5 Hammered Bronze Supra

Hi Hoppy,

Your theory may certainly be right: About a year ago I had to take the lugs off the shell, and discovered that the stubs where the screws go were broken on about half of them, something...

My 1980s 14x6.5 Hammered Bronze Supra

This one is for Mark (idrum4fun), who helped me with tips and ideas for new hoops for my Hammered Bronze Supra, a drum which I bought used some years ago.

More likely than used, the drum had been...

Re: 14 inch Pearl Fat Tone hoops for snare drum

Mark, just to let you know: I got a pair of Gibraltar 2.3 mm hoops today. They were really affordable, too. And I just put them on the drum and tuned it up. And now she sings! I guess the old hoops...

Re: 14 inch Pearl Fat Tone hoops for snare drum

Hi Mark,

THanks for suggesting 2.3 mm hoops. Yes, Gibraltar are readily available here. I have a hunch, though, that the Fat Tones will be more in line with what I want to achieve. I have checked...

Re: 14 inch Pearl Fat Tone hoops for snare drum

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the tumbs up on the Fat Tones. And thanks for pointing me to Interstate Music. I am aware that my only option seems to be to import from the US. However, customs and other...

14 inch Pearl Fat Tone hoops for snare drum

I am looking for a pair of 14", 10 hole Pearl Fat Tone hoops, for snare drum, snare and batter side, preferably new, but as long as they are perfectly round and flat I am ok with used.

Price...

Re: Rogers Dyna-Sonic Snare Case

I use a regular 14 inch softcase by Protectionracket. It's a snug fit but works great. Also, Hardcase's 14 inch case does the job.

Best,

Re: Sonor Teardrop parts required

Hi Rural Audio,

I have a ca 1958 early teardrop kit. Like yours, it was in bad shape when I received it, so I had a professional drum builder repair it: plies had separated etc, it was a mess....

Thanks, Ploughman, I will certainly smile if and when I get one of those - probably in 6.5 though, since I kind of like the bigger sound of my 6.5 Big R COB. Those Black Gloss ones are astounding! Is...

Re: Sonor Teardrop 3 ply x 6 ply

My set is a very early teardrop, with the tom mount centrally placed on the bass drum.

Re: Sonor Teardrop 3 ply x 6 ply

Hi,

I have a 3-ply kit, an old one, from ca 1958. These are great drums, but as you suspect, the superthin shells do not support high tunings well - at least, that is my experience. I tune the...

Re: DRUMS TOO LOUD!/ what to do?

Re: Ludwig imperial lug breakage

Hi Marko,

Thanks for the advice. As I put the lugs I checked back yesterday, I tightened all screws by hand. I always try to be careful not to overdo it when I make sure all screws etc are tight...

Re: Ludwig imperial lug breakage
