Default Re: Sonor Teardrop 2

Love that "TV" wrap, great set. I think that finish was discontinued right as they switched to 6 ply. There may be orphan drums with 6 ply in some transition sets because that's usually how it went, but every one I've seen was a 3 ply 20/13/16 set with the tom mount slightly left on the BD and the large mallet logo instead of the silver rectangle badge, usually tell tale signs of an older 3 ply set.

See my ca 1958 teardrop kit (picture in the original thread about johnnyringo's kit) for a really old version with center tom mount and script logo with that wrap.

The tom is a 13, not sure if they even made a 12 for these kits.

Yup; 13 was most common but I am referring to the depth. American 13,s were 9", but British and German were 8". At least mine is...If you sell the kit, let me know, its one I,d bend the rules a little for.

12 1/2 X 10 1/4 with your badge, 13 X 8 with square badge after 1965 SONOR had an American market so they matched sizes.
