      Comments about Sonor Martini 4-Piece Shell Pack:

      I've had this set for a couple weeks, so this is my initial impression of the set.
      Out of the box, this set has a beautiful finish that pictures can't do justice--simply stunning. It was quick to put together and get to playing.
      The small drums offer a very tonal experience. The tuning of the drums on this is important and are what make the set as fun as it is. The compact format not only make the drums easy to move around; I've found that this makes the set easy play around on with more speed as well and everything is always in reach. Rolls on any of the drums are so easy and sound great without much effort. The drums are responsive as well as dynamic. I haven't had a chance to try some upgraded heads yet, but the ones included are not bad.

      The size does not compromise the volume of the set too much. It is important to note that the smaller drums (especially with the 8" tom and the 14" kick) call for more tonal drumming and will not work as well for genres like classic rock and hard rock.

      I plan on doing another review after I've had a few months with it, but as of now this set has been a very rewarding purchase. It is simply a lot of fun to play and sounds so cool and unique.

        Comments about Sonor Martini 4-Piece Shell Pack:

        Upon removal of this kit from the box, I've noticed its rich and colorful finish. I'm not a big fan of wrap around finishes but I was astounded and amazed by this one. If you're wanting a punchy and fat tone, stock head aren't recommended for this kit; however, I'd strongly advise Aquarian or Evans heads.

          Great set right out of the box. Remo (japan) heads are not that great. I changed all the heads to my fav. Aquarian and the sound is much better. Only gripe is I wish the 8" tom was a 10". The color sold me on this kit.

            Comments about Sonor Martini 4-Piece Shell Pack:

            First off, the shipping time for this thing was incredible. So don't expect much waiting around. In fact, don't expect hardly any time at all to have to wait before getting to groove on this kit. Right out of the box, the most striking feature was its appearance. The galaxy turquoise sparkle looks absolutely stunning. After easy unboxing, the drums were very easy to set up and tune. The tom tom, floor tom, and bass drum all have a great amount of lift to reach tall players. The bass drum riser, mount, and legs were all easy to install and give it an awesome, retro look while remaining super sturdy. It hasn't budged an inch! When tuning the drums, keep in mind that the smaller the drum, the more melodic it will be; it will create more of a note while larger drums create more of a thud. It was very easy to tune, and tune well for that matter. The overtones are not overbearing at all and it's quite simple to tune the drums in a specific key. They sound incredible, giving a warm, vibrant tone. And don't let the small size fool you. The sound the kit puts out is definitely a bigger bite than its bark. The snare pops like a firecracker, the bass drum thuds smoothly, but still gives more of a note in its tone, and the toms contrast each other perfectly. This set would be perfect for several different applications, primarily including jazz, funk, hip-hop, fusion, and swing. Or even if you're just looking for a small kit for an apartment, club, or street, this will surpass your expectations. Amazing little kit from Sonor. And such a great price, too! I have no complaints about the Martini kit at all. Just in love with it all around!
