The Sonor Player 4-Piece Shell Set is a wonderful kit for anyone who's tight on space or just looking for a gigging kit that's a little easier to transport. The Sonor Player 4-Piece Shell Set incorporates 9-ply poplar shells for a warm, musical, tone that is sure to please players of all styles and skill levels. Sizes are…

  • 12"x20" Bass Drum
  • 8"x10" Tom
  • 12"x14" Floor Tom
  • 5"x14" Snare

The 12"x20" Bass Drum is extremely unique in the sense that it is the only one of its kind. The shallow depth helps give this drum a more pronounced, punchy tone while still being warm, open, and booming. It also makes the drum easier to transport. The tom mount is also something special. Not only does this through bass drum mount work for the rack tom, but it has a cymbal mount as well. This cuts down on the amount of stands you'll have to drag around.  

The Sonor Player 4-Piece Shell Set is an extremely versatile kit that seems to be at home in all styles of music. Whether you're into Rock, Pop, Jazz, Fusion, Hip-Hop, R&B, or anything in between; these drums deliver the perfect combination of warmth, resonance, and punch to give you just the right sound. This set also features Sonor's patented Tune Safe equipped lugs. Not only do these lugs give the drums that definitive Sonor look, but they actually help keep the drums in tune longer. This set also features triple-flanged hoops which are known for their warm, lively sound. This extremely affordable kit will bring out the very best of your playing. The portable sizes, combined with Sonor's uncompromising commitment to quality make these drums perfect for rehearsals, practicing at home, café gigs, acoustic settings and even session work.

Yet again, this is a shell set. This means that hardware and cymbals are not included. If you need these items, you can find them in our "Things You'll Need" section.

    Sonor

    By 

    from Huntington, New York

    Comments about Sonor Player 4-Piece Shell Set:

    A little small for my taste, but I'm sure a dedicated jazz player would love the size and the sound that comes from these drums. While Sonor is one of those "Rare" finds, this set is aesthetically beautiful, and produces a sound that would make you expect every drummer to be a Sonor artist. This little guy is versatile for any type of jazz, rock, fusion or country. The smaller feel is great for smaller venues and studios, but even in that size drop, the sound is very much compensating. Great buy.

    This is a real hands on product review from Chris @ Sam Ash Huntington.

      Comments about Sonor Player 4-Piece Shell Set:

      This is a new set put out by Sonor specifically designed for the gigging musician The poplar shells offer bright tone featuring great projection. The bass drum is 20"x 14," the rack tom is 10"x 8" with a 14"x 12" floor tom. A 14"x 5" wooden snare rounds out the kit. Also included is an old school cymbal arm, which mounts directly to the bass drum allowing for the intrepid gigging drummer to carry one less cymbal stand. This kit sets up perfect for those small clubs that you don't have a lot of room small kit but big sound.

        This 4 piece kit will do wonders with your groove. Don't over think things kick & snare and two toms. Sounds amazing and with its small foot print it can be played anywhere. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Ontario.

              This exclusive set packs a punch! An offshoot of the Safari kit with a 20" bass drum is great for small gigs, practice and everything in between! The added boom arm is an added bonus too!

                Comments about Sonor Player 4-Piece Shell Set:

                I can't say enough good things about this little kit.

                The shells sound surprisingly big and beefy when headed up with good thick heads, or they can sound lively and vibrant when tuned with thin, single ply heads.

                The color options are vibrant and unique.

                It's a very compact kit if you are tired of lugging around giant drum kits or if you need something that takes up a minimal foot print in your home.

                  The Sonor Player kit has big sound in a small package. I was blown away by the poplar shells and the projection I got out of them. The tom mount that includes a cymbal mount was a great feature as well, adding to the mobility of the set and it's uses. Great value for a little set!

                    This is a great introductory set for young learners. I bought this for my son to practice on and he's been whaling away at it for over a year now. Its very compact so it fits in tight spots and is probably one of the most decent sets in its price range. I recommend it to all young students in need of a set to practice on.

                      great portable kit! I gig a lot in Los Angeles and most bars that have live music don't have very big stages and a kit this size come in handy for small clubs and bars without sacrificing sound quality for comfort. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Cerritos

                        Building on the success of the Sonor Safari and Bop drum kits, we now have the Sonor Player kit...a Sam Ash Music Exclusive! With a 14x20" bass drum, you get the punch from a 20", but the convenience of a travel-ready kit. This kit is exceptionally well made and is a great value in this price range.
