Color: Black Galaxy Sparkle
I just received the natural finish set. WOW! I have been playing drums (in front of people) for well over 42 years. These are unbelievable. The bass drum does thud and not ring when you hit it. Decent bass heads with double ply rings built in. I cut a 4" hole in the front head easier to adjust muffling in Florida weather and humidity.

I sanded the bearing edges on the bass then installed heads. The toms and snare now have tone control rings on them, and I was suprised at the depth and quality of sound. I may be old but I like 70's rock and these can keep up. They would be well suited to jazz, club, rock in any venue, requiring miking only when the room or audience gets larger.

The finish on my set is a wood burl look wrap but absolutely beautiful and the seams are inconspicuous, though they overlap a little. Mounting hardware is Sonor beefy. The bass is jacked up about 3-4" and the rear mount for the pedal is solid also.

Far better made than all other low end drum sets and still less expensive, even after adding hardware.

I play in all kinds of church events for cristian rock and worship style music,i have had several expensive pro kits and this kit is made with same quality if not better than most, and it sounds amazing,everything is normal size except the kick ,and it sounds like a cannon! ive read a few bad reviews on the snare but mine sounded pretty good out of the box and after a little tunning now its perfact.at this price its a no brainer,its exactly like Sonor's $1200.00 jungle kit and i think this one looks way better ,if you buy one get the black galaxy sparkle it looks like diamonds shimmering under stage lights.Great kit, i cant say enough,get one and you wont be sorry,and you may never go back to a big bulky kit again,i know im not.

This set is perfect for my needs; great sound in small space. It is made extremely well and I must say that I'm impressed with the price. I could see it selling for $100 to $150 more, based on sets of the same size produced by other manufacturers. But the size, price and the Sonor brand brought me to purchase this one. I like the color (Black Galaxy Sparkle) and I like the sound. I'll add that it sounds pretty good without upgrading, but I found myself changing the snare and both tom heads to more dampened heads by Evans. I left the kick drum alone and with a blanket inside, it delivers an excellent punch! Love this set...

Color: Black Galaxy Sparkle Verified Purchase
This is an excellent kit for those wanting something smaller than the typical drumkit. This kit has excellent tone and the wrap is glued completely to the drum (unlike my Gretch kits which are glued at various points with air pockets in between).I would recommend "not" using the riser. Firstly it wobles, secondly I love the look of this kit right on the ground. Just lower the mallet on the bass drum pedal and you will have no trouble. I was also concerned about the absence of a suspension mount on the tom tom, but I can't hear it is having any affect on the resonance of the tom. I currently use DW's 6000 series hardware and it compliments this black galaxy sparkle kit perfectly. There is nothing this kit can't do!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Griff-Man on April 3, 2014
Color: Red Galaxy Sparkle Verified Purchase
This is a five star drum set considering the price. I've compared it to the Questlove breakbeats and while the sets are very similar the safari has nicer hardware. Love the bass drum as it is unexpectedly punchy given its size. The toms are adequate. Be warned the snare may not be considered acceptable to everyone though I found adequate enough and perhaps only a drummer would notice it imperfections but certainly not the audience. Small portable economical Add a Mienl MCS cymbal pack and a hardware pack from pacific drums and percussion and you have a decent new set for less than you might find a midrange used set. No buyers regret. Great for jazz and small clubs and venues. Only a drummer who needs to be surrounded by drums and gear would turn up his/her nose at this little gem for drummers on a budget. Don't let the price or size fool you.

Color: Red Galaxy Sparkle Verified Purchase
Nice kit with astounding sound, particularly the bass drum. If you purchase this Sonor SSE 12 Bop C1 RGS 4-Piece Safari Drum kit be very careful when unpacking, the washers are mounted on the threaded bars and held on them by rubber caps that may fall out in transportation. Sonnor should reconsider their packaging and tie those washers together with their corresponding wingnuts.
Since I wanted lightweight I purchased 4 p Millenium 202CH Hardware Set Light from Thomann (http://www.thomann.de/gb/millenium_202ch_hardware_set_light.htm?sid=3963790aafa2cd0b3a2153cd46b29a54), with the outstanding performance of a plying hi-hat inner rod. Forget about searching this part inside your hardware bag, it folds nicely alongside the hi-hat lower part!
As an additional advice, do not buy drum bags in advance relying on Sonnor’s nominal measures, since legs and other parts are not fixed by drum screws as with most other brands, but by wingnuts that protrude considerably from the shells. Wait until you receive your kit and take measures!
Apart from that, let me tell you that I bought the Red Sparkle option and I am very glad with it. I hope you’ll enjoy yours too!! Best wishes and… KEEP GROOVING HIGH!!
