Following the highly successful run of Safari sets last fall, Sonor listened to the players once again and
answer with an exciting new spin on portable gig alternative sets for 2011!

The new Sonor Special Edition: Pocket Set offers several upgrades and additional components from the
original Safari set, while maintaining an affordable price point, and without compromising on Sonors
respected value in quality, sound and design!

Sonor Canadas sales and product manager, Scott Atkins says: Last years Safari Set was a great hit in the fall, but we still got asked a lot about the possibility to add on drums. So in launching the Pocket Set for 2011, we have added a 12 tom to the set‐up, in addition to the ability to further add an 8 tom, and a few great
enhancements to the construction of the drums.

The toms & floor tom now share the same dimensions as the popular new Sonor S‐Drive configurations in the
Essential and Select Force lines. Upgrades include the change to wood bass drum hoops, which greatly enhance the punch and tone of Sonors Jungle‐size 16 x 16 bass drum. The lugs and fittings used are the new Force‐Style low‐mass lugs introduced on the new lines at the 2011 NAMM show. With many drummers now using 13 snare drums as a main snare, the Pocket Set now includes a 13 x 5 snare drum. Rounding out the package is the double‐tom mount system, (which can also accommodate a single tom and cymbal boom arm set‐up as well), legs for the 14 x 12 floor tom, and the Riser / Pedal‐Mount system from the Select Force Jungle Series. Although it's sold as a 5‐pc shell pack configuration, the Pocket Set is offered in two finishes from the new Smart Force series, meaning you can also add the 8 tom if you wish. Complete packages are also available by adding Sonors 100 Series lightweight single‐braced Hardware Sets to the Shell Pack, making the Pocket Set the ultimate alternative set for the gigging drummer, or considering the price point, a great start‐up package for any beginning player!

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreSummerside, Prince Edward Island
I bought this in January 2012. This kit sounds amazing for the price! I actually bought it when it was $499...at $399...its a steal. I personally find the white kit better looking than the black set that came out. The white kit has black hardware which looks super cool. This kit is really compact...easy to set up and tear down every night. I recently had this kit in the recording studio and it blew the engineer away. They told me that a DW kit worth 3 times as much didn't sound this good. It's just a nice tight sounding kit for the size. I did change the factory heads...because they didn't sound that great. On the kick, I used a 16" Aquarius Super Kick II head (which sounds amazing btw on this kick drum), and threw Evans G2's on the rest. I've been getting many compliments on this kit....and especially the snare drum. It's a 13"...but man it's tight and clean. With some tuning, lots of great tones come out of it. In closing, you can hopefully tell that this kit is really awesome for the price...Sonor did a great job with it...buy it in white!!
