Sonor 1980 Phonic Natural Beech Drum Set Excellent
Excellent condition with some tarnish and rough spots on chrome. Most lugs look good, though some have flaking. Rims are okay; some rough spots, but no rust that I can detect. Wood surfaces look new in some areas, have scratches in others, but nothing unsightly. 12 inch tom has the roughest surface in areas. Generally, the kit looks great for its age.
I believe the drums have had the plastic wrap removed and the surfaces refinished, which is done to improve the sound. This does not affect their functioning. The 12 inch tom looks refinished; yet the other drums do not. Hard to say.
These drums sound incredible. Beechwood is punchy and deep. Drums are heavy!
Rare 20x14 bass drum (wooden hoops are not original, but originals are metal. These drums are heavy enough!). The spurs work great. They fold out. Very strong. 12x8, 13x9, 16x16 toms.
Double tom holder has extra clamp for tom or cymbal rod (not included). Extra Double tom holder (see photo). This was the original tom holder, but was missing tightening levers.This old school (best school) holder arm pierces drum shell. I purchased these drums for that reason. Drums are nice and solid when hit.
Makes a nice jazz kit, too.
All the toms have internal tone controls.
