Hi Everyone,

I just picked up a used 7 piece Sonor Force 2000 (circa early 90's) in exchange for my 5 piece export kit.

I was wondering if anyone here has had some experience with this line of drum and would like to provide some insight on achieving this kits maximum potential. I believe this kit is made from 9 ply poplar.

Tom sizes are 10,12,13,14,16,22-14" Snare

Thanks in advance



ps: the kit pictured is the closest one I could find to my own (same color/lugs)

I had one I used for years in Black. It is a great sounding set! One of the last budget lines made by Sonor in their German factory. I purchased my set when my son was born (Now age 22), He still owns that set and I can say that they sound great and hold up very well.

From my experience with the force 2, i wasnt very impressed. It always sounds like it lacks something. then again, the wood isnt the greatest either. but the kit did seem pretty well made. Just try changing the top and bottom heads, and it should be a step up from where it is now.

It should sound good in spite of the poplar shells because of Sonor attention to detail on the bearing edges. Again, they served both myself and my son well for over 22 years!

I have a 5 piece in black. I'd say the snare is the weakest part of the kit. The kick is fantastic and the kit is well made and has held up well. I have a remo muffl in the kick (this was before EMADs and similar) and it has a great thump. I think you'll be very happy with it.

I purchased my kit in 1990 and it's still okay , I added an 8" tom tom force 3000 and highlite floor of 18" as these sizes were unavailable within the Force 2000 range . So that gave me 8 , 10 , 12 , 13 , 14" toms and 16 , 18" floor toms along with 2x 22" bd . I directly skipped the hardware 'cause it was real low quality and not sturdy enough . Instead I used 9000 range hardware from Pearl .For snare I didn't use the Force 2000 snare but a LUDWIG SUPER SENSITIVE 6 1/2 x 14 " or a wood snare from Tama 8 x 14" .
