I am very happy with the Sonor Wood Blocks sound. I have the middle and large Sonor blocks, mounted on my Slingerland bass drum; for use in Ragtime - Early Dixieland styles. I am using the Drum Workshop SM2141 Claw Hook Accessory Clamps to attach the blocks. The DW Clamps are perfect for the job too! When a bit cramped for space, it sounds just like the original recordings; that I am performing right now. Remember the DW clamps only fit rounded BD Hoops! I found the perfect match for my gig! I hope that you do too!
