The Hemelsoet Sonor snare collection UPDATE 03-11-2014

Post by hemelsoet » Mon Dec 09, 2013 3:52 pm

After numerous hours of searching, "screwing", scrubbing, polishing, photographing, sorting out and loading up and down i finally managed to put up around 60 of my old Sonor snares to photobucket. From here i transported them to this forum. (took me about 4 hours)
I'll put 1 pic. of each drum on, plus the link to the photobucket basket in which the rest of the pics can be seen.
Some of these drums are in an original condition, others are restored and some others are as found.
As far as possible i put a modell name /date on them. Some modells like the D422 evaluated quiet a lot, but the modell number stayed the same over the years.
I've still a few to go, but i've waited long enough, because it's never "all done" and complete.
I intend to keep this thread up to date, as i find new drums.
It was a lot of pics and data to sort out. If anything isn't correct, please tell me.
Enjoy
Henk

Breathtaking!! Just breathtaking... 8-)

Congrats on an awesome and amazing collection. :D

I could never dream of putting together a collection of those drums from here in the US.

Thanks for sharing and for the pics.

I would love to play some of those drums, especially the 30's brass drum.

Awesome collection..

However, I'm a bit disappointed they were not in chronological order... :lol:
