Overview

Sonor's Martini SE Shell Pack is a diminutive kit that enables a player to fit their acoustic jazz bossa grooves into the tightest of venues. Cross-laminated, 9-ply poplar shells output punchy tone with ample resonance. A steel snare drum provides those crisp, round tones with the ring you've come to love.

Triple-flange hoops will endure all the rimshots you can dish out, while Tune-Safe lugs ensure that the tuning stays in place. The Martini kit comes with an 14" x 12" kick (with mount and riser), 8" x 8" tom, 13" x 10" floor tom and a 12" x 5" steel snare.

Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

    Comments about Sonor Martini 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    After changing the heads to Evans G2s on the toms and an hydrolic on the kick, huge difference. Only thing that bothers me is the 8" tom..its too long looking.wish it was a 10"x 8"

      Comments about Sonor Martini 4-Piece Shell Pack:

      I bought this little kit a couple of months ago and WOW! This kit's big brother is a Tama Starclassic B/B, so I was a little hesitant switching over to a poplar kit. However after changing the heads, this kit SINGS! The music I'm playing is indie rock (Circa Survive, Thrice) and old country tunes (Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash).
      The toms tune up real easy and have enough punch for rock, but also enough warmth for the country tunes. THE KICK! Okay, I love my 18x22 and 18x20 kicks, but a 14 just seemed like a good challenge. When I first got it, I put a 4" port in the kick... BIG MISTAKE! After hitting what sounded like a pancake, I put coated heads on both sides with no port... I always put them in my big kicks so it was kind of a habit. After I put coated PS3s on both sides... DANG! It has a low end "WOOF" that my 22 has never had. I ditched the snare because even though it cuts, the 12" diameter is too thin for me so I have it on reserve for a side/backup snare. The hardware is great. A lot of companies skimp in this area, but Sonor uses the same hardware on this kit as they do on their high-end kits. I went with the Champagne Sparkle finish and it's beautiful... more gold than pink. I also liked that the kick drum hoop was nice and sturdy.

      IF you want a punchy, but still warm sound on this kit, here are the heads I used:
      8" tom - Coated Emperor (top) Clear Ambassador (bottom)
      13" tom - Coated Emperor (top) Clear Ambassador (bottom)
      14" kick - Coated PS3 (batter) Coated PS3 (resonant) **NO PORT**

        I'm in a band that plays mostly volunteer gigs, usually in small spaces. I've been playing a Tama Silverstar cocktail kit and enjoyed it but never felt comfortable with the inverted bass pedal as well as the large tom sitting above the bass. I'm in my 60's and grew up playing single and double kits. Although small, this kit sits just like a full size kit.

          I bought this sonor kit for my kid for xmas when i was putting it together I noticed the shell on the kick was jacked. anyway after cams I called up guitar center here in town and talk to the drum guy. they told me to bring it in and they'd take a look at it. like I said the kick wasn't right, outta round. no hassle, they replaced it with a all new kit. I was in and outta there in 1/2 hour. all is well. they were great. sweet kit too.

          Martini wow

          By Eddie

          from Mesa Arizona

          Comments about Sonor Martini 4-Piece Shell Pack:

          Let me say first of all Sonor has created a masterpiece, the finish, the hardware, and most of all the sound is astounding! No corners have been cut on this kit. The snare is easy to tune and rips ! Incredible sound from bass drum almost unbelievable boom! Toms can be tuned from lowest resonance to highest and sound amazing. Over all very solid kit. Bass drum stays put ,no sliding, tom mount is heavy duty, floor tom legs are excellent. Would highly recommend this kit to any one, professional or not. The volume of the kit is incredible also for such small drums. Can not say enough great things about this kit. I have been playing drums for 44 years and currently play in a contemporary Christian band whose first album went top 20 on Billboard, I can't wait to take these out next gig! Martini kit ? Absolutely!!!
