Vintage Sonor drums.
The hemelsoet collection.

On this website, you’ll find the fruits of my collecting addiction that started years ago.

As an amateur drummer for over 45 years, I always played Sonor drums; I had the same Sonor Action set for almost 30 years. At one point I got the possibility to buy a Sonor Force 3000 in “Maserbirke” finish. Actually this set was the very first set of my collection. In the following years, many sets and single Sonor drums passed through and joined the collection.

With every new set or drum, my curiosity and knowledge grew. I have special interest in Sonor Teardrops and the earlier models. I’m also digging into Sonor’s history, because there’s a great lack of information, especially about the early days, because the Link family had to escape to Western Germany during WW2, leaving everything behind.
