1963/64 Sonor "Teardrop" Chicago Star Drum Kit

The striped champagne gold finish of this Sonor teardrop kit has dulled over the years, but the drums sound magical. The badges say “Made in Western Germany.”

Sonor Chicago Star Specs: 8×13, 14×16, 14×20 kick. Lovingly restored by Colin Richey.

Some of the photos below show Jack DeJohnette, Jon Bonham, and Bill Ward play similar Sonor teardrop kits back in 1960s.
