Sonor Designer - Macassar Ebony - Limited Run!

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


Up for auction is rare Sonor Designer kit built for Five Star at a run of 25 kits in  Macassar Ebony  on both exterior and interior of drums.  It looks like a work of art!

Details from print ad are down below.

The finish is stunning on this kit and the interior is just as beautiful. If you usually play coated batters you may find it hard to not want clear just so you can admire inside of shells. These are conservatively a 9 out of 10 with just a mark here and there on floor toms but no gouges or deep scratches. All brass hardware and bearing edges are excellent and drums sound incredible. I've never heard such a nice bass drum and I've owned and played some great kits. I currently play regular Designers and while they are great drums in their own right you can hear this kit is special. Wish I could keep it for myself!

These are expensive drums and will be packed with utmost care to insure they arrive in pristine condition. Insured shipping of course and kit will be bubble wrapped before going in padded cases with additional paper and bubble packing on outsdie of cases to prevent possibility of any damage. Please read some of the feeback about my attention to details with shopping.  Kit will be  in several boxes as well.  Shipping charges will be $100 - $200 depending on location. $200 is maximum I would charge to ship anywhere in US and if it ends up being more I will cover it. I only charge what UPS charges me and I will refund any difference. If you prefer you can pick-up at my home in Troy, NY or I will meet (within an hours drive) and deliver.

I am so sorry but I cannot ship this kit outside contenential US.  I also cannot accepet returns unless different than as advertised or damaged in shipping.  Believe it or not ther are some who would try out a kit for a bit and then try to return  it. The risk of sending a kit back and forth where I can't control the packaging on return shipment is something I am not comfortable with on this amazing kit.

Shipping Policy

Available for local pickup from Troy, NY, United States

Ships from Troy, NY, United States to:

Continental U.S.

I will ship at actual cost and usually I use FedEx as they tend to be best price but will compare all carriers (FedEx, UPS and USPS) to get you best rate at a reasonable delivery time (1-3 days depending on your location).
I edge wrap all cymbals I sell with minimum of triple layer of bubble wrap. I then wrap in additional layers of bubble wrap top and bottom before fitting to slightly larger box with additional padding to prevent any movement. I have never had anyone report any problems with how a cymbal arrived and if you check my feedback I get great reviews on thoroughness. I also charge minimal to ship despite spending quite a bit on packing supplies (not to mention my time ;>). I feel all this is important because nothing would be worse (for both of us!) then to have a cymbal arrive damaged.I also employ the same quality and care when I ship drums from single toms to whole sets. Often these are very expensive purchases and I want buyers to feel confident the item they paid good money for will arrive in exact condition it left my possession.
