I got this kit to see if I would like a larger 1 up 2 down configuration since my main kit is a 60's Ludwig 3-ply with re-rings. Though they were fun to play they obviously don't hold a candle to 60's Ludwigs so I sold them shortly after receiving them.
This is not the kit Phil actually plays on but a basswood intermediate kit in his peculiar size choices. For what it is, this kit is pretty sweet. The hardware and build quality are top-notch for a cheap kit and it takes a licking. Basswood is very light (but strong) so load-in is a breeze compared to a luan or even maple kit!
Get some good heads, work over the bearing edges, and tune this baby up. It's a lot of fun!
And if you find the real Phil Rudd snare for cheap, jump on that bad boy!
It's actually a great set if you don't beat the hell out of it.
Always dreamed of a Sonor as a kid and now as a professional drummer and teacher, I can tell you it's NOT what they used to be, but for the $300 I paid, it's great. It looks sharp! And yes, it is VERY LOUD compared to some other kits.
I also play a Slingerland 50's vintage kit, a Yamaha Stage Custom, a Ludwig 70's vintage kit, an 80's/90's Tama Kit, A PDP X7, as well as many others at gigs.
This is a great set unless you are trying to get the TOP OF THE LINE drumset.
Only downside: Less lugs (6 when there's normally 8) on some toms. just means it's harder to keep in tune (though I have NOT had that problem).
