I wasn't expecting much when I paid the $1500 for the set. To an avid jazz drummer such as myself, the huge bass drum (for dropping "phat" beats, or whatever) and thick snare (which looks born and bred for rock-n-roll) usually loses-out to lighter, jazzier (and, subsequently), more expensive equipment.But when I took a closer look, the Force 3003 was underpriced. By a lot.Put some new heads on the snare and toms, and you've got a lot of diversity at hand. I tuned my snare up, and it gave me a great POP, perfect for jazz lines. I imagine that my tuning to a mid-range you could get a fantastic rock/funk sound. The toms are good, although there's a slight difference in the resonance of the high and low toms. The high seems a bit muffled when tuned UP, and the low resonates too much for my taste when also tuned UP.I'm one of those rebellious, daring kinds of drummers who likes to remove his middle tom and replace it with a low, jazzy ride cymbal. The Force 3003's dual-mount system is ideal for this sort of freedom.So you pay a pretty low price for a handsome (not gorgeous) drum set, throw in a set of mid-range cymbals (I have Sabian AAs), and invest in a couple of new heads (the factory remos are fine, though). What do you get?A surprisingly diverse set of sounds. A solid, well-designed core that keeps your instrument from sliding away on stage. A set that's worth a good $500 more than you paid.

Basically thats all I can say thats good about this set. Sound is what u expect (with better heads ofcourse) Color ofcourse is much duller than in the pictures. But the thing that really made me rate this so low overall is that you recieve the cheaper line of hardware than what is promised. You will not be recieving 400 series. 200 if you're lucky. You guys notice how all the other reviews sound like they're from the same person? Be surprised if they post this one.

awesome value kit

By T Bone

from Colorado

See all my reviews

I have had this kit playing in a traveling rock band for three years. Put some good heads on these drums and they absolutely rock. We trigger the bass through a subwoofer and it blows people away. The drums are very durable, as are the stands. This is not just a great starter kit, although for the price it is a great entry kit. I have had so many compliments on how good this kit sounds. I would definitely buy Sonor again in the future. Don't pass up this great deal if you need a kit.

Surprisingly Great!

By Kimrob

from Rochester, NH

WOW, I am new to drums and bought these in Dec. of 05 (white sparkle) and am very happy. They sound incredible, although I will admit that the Bass drum sounds a little weak, but I will be putting on an aquarian superkick II so that should solve that small problem. You really cannot go wrong with this kit. I don't know much about other sets besides looking at them in stores and I can't find one in this range with hardware this good.

Incredible

By Bee-bAXBh

from Lancaster, Ky.

I just received this set in Dec. 2005,and I cant believe the sound this kit puts out incredible. The snare rings somewhat though. I cant get it sounding like I want. Anybody got any advice. I recommend this set to anybody. And the way it came packaged, great job guys. I used to play pearl but not no more, I'm sold on this kit.

Buy these drums!!

By This drum rules!!!

from Bham AL

You will not be sorry with the sound or quality of these drums! The bass sounds huge and the toms sound much better than the ones on the Ludwig accent kit that this replaced. The tom mounts concerned me at first, but after you play them your doubt quickly fade..With new heads, I think I will play these forever!! Hurry though because these will be replaced with the 3005 series and you will miss out on this great price....

Blown Away in PA

By Vinman-XxtsG

from Newtown, PA

See all my reviews

I am 42 years old and have been a drummer nearly all of my life. I have played professionally for many years. I have owned seven pro kits. I got out of the business a few years back and got a "real job". Just got this Sonor kit to leave at a friend's studio and I got to tell you that this kit is a great deal. The craftsmanship is outstanding with flawless paint, wonderful woodworking and tough hardware. You would have to spend thousands for a kit made to these standards in the states. The hardware is all you will ever need unless you are a touring drummer. This is a beautiful, warm sounding kit. Try using Aquarian heads. I still can't get over the price of this set. you gotta be kidding. This is by far the best deal out there. You snooze you lose. Blown away in PA!

Hot, Hot, Hot

By Boomerzdrummer

from Kansas City, KS

WOW! I was looking to buy a used or entry level kit to use for practice only and came upon this Sonor set at an incredible price! I chose the red maple and it is absolutely beautiful. It is far nicer than advertised and the pictures don't do it justice. From the packaging to the hardware to the drums themselves, you will not find a better set for the money...anywhere! Hurry before they are all gone.

Great buy for Moneyus

By Justin Clark

from Berwick, LA

This set is great for a skilled purcussionist who has been playing for a while. It is also an awesome buy for the amount of money you pay. The hardware is the best I've seen for the money. The cymbal stands never have moved once. Believe me when I say that its quality i've been playing for more than ten years
