Default Re: Looking for info on studio kit.

Yup, those Sonor Phonics are seriously well made drums with both great tone & projection. A little heavy to be lugged around the world on gigs IMHO, so what better place for them to live than a studio? There's a set of these in a bar in Casablanca that have probably been there since Manu Dibango played there in his hay day.I gigged on them for a 10 week stint & was more than happy. Here's some nice playing on a well tuned Phonic Bop Kit:

& another Phonic .The tone of these speak for themselves!
1964 Ludwig Champagne Super Classic
1970 Ludwig Blue Oyster Super Classic
1977 Rogers Big R Londoner 5 ebony
1972/1978 Rogers Powertone/Big R mix ebony
60's Ludwig Supersensitive
Pearl B4514 COB snare ( the SC snare)
Pearl Firecracker
PJL WMP maple snare
Odds & Sods

Sabians, Paistes, Zildjians, Zyns, UFIPs, MIJs etc
Item may be subject to change!
