25 years ago, I ordered my first King Kong Kase! It's still alive and well with a good friend in Albany. About that same time, Buz King was still the Sonor Product Manager with HSS and we developed a friendship that continues to this day. Great guy, and great products. I am glad to have been able to work one of his fine cases into the fold of my current rig!

He is a class act, and I have enjoyed meeting him several times when I went up for cases and cymbals. It's sad that he is so far removed from Sonor at the design/distribution level, but he still has a heart for Sonor.

For those who remember those cases built for the 8X14 behemoth Sonor snare drums, they were King Kong...and you can still order them any way you want them. Buz reports that his case business is the busiest it has ever been. I certainly appreciate the fact that despite the boom in production, Buz took the time to work up a design for a one off microphone case. I look forward to getting it built and delivered.

Total agreement. I have 3 King Kong cases for my HLDs. Pricy, but bomb proof construction. Highly recommended!

He didn't waste time! This bad boy shipped today! Plenty of space for all the mics this drummer may need, plus all the accessories I don't want to put in a drum hardware bag.

Hoping for delivery by Friday.
