Sonor Martini Drum Kit

Sonor Martini Kit

If you’re one of the innumerable drummers out there stuffed into corners at nightly restaurant and bar gigs, here’s a kit for you. Sonor’s new Martini kit features small, portable poplar drums with big sounds: a 14-by-12-inch bass drum, an 8-by-8 rack tom, a 13-by-10 floor tom and a steel snare measuring 12 inches across and 5 deep. Completing the kit are Sonor’s tuning lugs and fittings, REMO drumheads and a retro Emerald Isle turquoise sparkle finish (with natural-grain bass drum hoops).
