My Kit in England

Post  Mark [Admin] on Thu May 29, 2008 8:30 pm

Heres the Sonor Phonic Hi-Tech I brought while living in London - cost me a mere 600 quid. I later sold it and brought my ayotte. 2 x 22x18" kicks, 15,14,13,12,10,8 toms and rosewwod phonic snare plus a shit load of black pro-tech hardware. Cymbals were Istanbul agops I brought in Turkey.

hey lovely pearl set! i'm not a pearl player myself but i do own 2 x pearl snares being a brass 14x6 free floating and an 80's maple MX 14x8. Does it take you long to set up for gigs? I started off playing large kits but then couldn't be arsed lugging the cases, traps etc so mainly play with a 4 piece these days.

Here's some pickies of one of my larger kits (which i've never played in its entirety like this) - an 80's Premier Resonator with 2 x 24" kicks, 14, 15, 16, & 18 toms






and a 9" deep heavy rock 9 brass snare

Is that an Imperialstar kit in metallic white? If so - it's very nice - Good 6 piece setup as well with a what..10, 12 13, 16 22? Is it an Imperialstar snare as well? I have of those and it is a fantastic snare - came up great in the studio. I really rate the Imperialstars with their 9 ply shells. I just sold a set of shells - i nearly kept them tho.

We've somewhat crossed forums into the vintage kits now but hey, it's all good - My Premier is not exactly modern but it's as modern as I have.

Its a Royalstar rather then Imperialstar, but pretty much same shell. But the snare is Imperialstar.


I only had the Superstars for about 2-3 months, just didnt play them and wasn't ready to spend money on new cymbals for the second kit.

nice setup - what model/era of kits are the premier and the pearl? Looks like a Tama snare too?

think they are both 1980's judging by the hardware, premier is an apk in jazz sizes and the pearl i have no idea but the kick is 22 x 14, hmm

don't let mark here you say its a tama snare he might get offended

Sound nice..similar config' to mine potentially with the 20" bass.
How does beech compare with maple or birch as far as attack and tone?

I think it's a very warm sound, many people say it's a cross between the maple and birch... heavy shells. I'm keen to get some Wood hoops on there at some point.. It does the job for me. I think If I got a new kit now it would have to be of the vintage variety...

Ironically enough, when I first bought this kit in 1998/1999 (I think), I was after a yamaha maple custom and had even had one reserved in the shop... but I had a play on it and didn't like the sound of it, the shop assistant suggested the beech (even though it was 500 cheaper at the time)... Very Happy

You can hear it on some tracks over on my myspace.. www.myspace.com/glenchild
