Sonor-Pat Travers Band, 1977, Phonic Nine Piece Set

The Pat Travers Band used this drum set starting in 1977 just as they were beginning their accent to commercial success. The set was originally used by Travers' drummer Clive Edwards. Clive Edwards can be seen playing the set in the 1977 Pat Travers Band live video below. Edwards played the set until handing over drum duties to Tommy Aldridge in 1978.

I received the set from the estate of a former colleague of Pat Travers who acquired the set directly from Travers.

The set remains in excellent condition after years of touring the world with one of America's hardest rocking bands. There are several minor scratches in the finish and some minor chrome peeling in a few spots that can be seen in the photos. There are 2 wear marks on the bottom edges of the 13" and 14" mounted toms where the toms rubbed on the bass hoops. One muffler has been removed from one of the floor toms, otherwise everything is complete. The original floor tom legs have been replaced with modern Yamaha legs.

PLEASE NOTE: The 16x14" concert tom seen in the 3rd photo sitting on the last floor tom is NOTincluded. The cymbals, cymbal stands and the tripod base of the double tom mount in the photos are not included.

The 8-piece, double bass set is circa 1977 West-German era, Sonor Phonic, Beech-Wood. Two 24"x14" bass drums, two 18"x16" floor toms, and 15"x12", 14"x10", 13"x9" and 12"x8" concert toms. Two Sonor bass drum tom mounts, plus four tom arms are included. All the toms are outfitted with Remo Pin-Stripe heads, and the bass drums have blue Evans heads. We photographed the set in a few different configurations.
