Here we have an incredible Sonor Phonic from the mid 70’s. This kit comes in the very rare standard depth toms and has an even rarer 20 x 14 bass drum. The kit is finished in Rosewood Veneer (inside and out) the floor tom has the Centennial 1875 - 1975 black and gold badge.
Phonic drums were the foundation of the Sonor drum program in the 70’s & 80's. The sound quality of these 9 ply beech shells has been imitated by many but never quite replicated over the years. To find one in these sizes has been a treat, the shorter depths give this kit incredible punch, quick tone and immediate definition.
All Phonic drums were made in Sonor Germany from high quality Beech in a 9-ply format. They are renowned for their full sound and high projection. Like the Signature series, the phonic features the very same Ferro Manganese rims on the toms and hoops on the bass drum, snap lock tension rods and prism clamp systems on the floor tom brackets and bass drum spurs.
The metal work is all original and incredibly clean and the shells are phenomenal (particularly the interiors). For somebody looking for a great playing set this is certainly one to check out, especially if you like standard depth toms.
These kits are high demand for both collectors and players who want one of Sonor’s most iconic ranges. These sizes are some of the rarest to find in the Phonic range and may possibly add very nicely to an existing power or extended depth kit.
There are some surface marks on the 14 x 14 floor tom (please see the close up picture) the marks are not really noticeable from a distance due to the grain in the veneer.
