Beginner Music Gear: Sonix Drum Kit Review 2021

The Sonix kit gives great value for money and nothing less than thunderous sounds!

The all-new Sonix drum kit has been upgraded according to the response of their customers and dealers’ advice. Sonix starter drum kit is available in two sizes, the Rock kit, and the Fusion kit. The Fusion version features the same snare drums as the Rock but has smaller floor tom and bass drums.

The Fusion kit is preferred by young entry-level drummers. Both versions are intended to be a great start-up kit for novice drummers. The kits are available in four wraps; black, blue, silver, and red while the sparkle in the wraps gives a striking finish. The complete kit is available with cymbals, stool, hardware, and sticks.


  • Decent sound.
  • Solid built.
  • All in one package.


  • Snare wires rattle.
  • Number of lugs on the floor tom are very few.

As The Market Gets Ever More Competitive, Sonix Puts On A Strong Show For Consideration

The Sonix drums are constructed with medium hardwood, poplar. Although poplar is inexpensive, it is considered next to birch and mahogany in terms of sonic results. The Sonix drum shells are 6.5mm thick of uniform six-ply with snare beds added into the sonic side of the drum. The large rectangular designed lugs are replaced by a new lug design which is comparatively of lower mass.

Based on the classic bullet shape they give the drums a contemporary look. The number of lugs on each drum is admirable except for the floor tom, which only features six of them around its 16” diameter. Another notable feature is the Remo UT pinstripe-styled heads on the tom and bass drums and a single-ply UT head for the snare.

The setup and tuning of the kit is easy, which is a positive point as this is a starter kit. Everything locks into place smoothly and inserting damping materials between the basic instruments is not difficult either. The sound from these drums is hard and more of a slap than the sort of dry response which is more common in other bass drums available.

The strongest element of the Sonix kit are the toms, they deliver a performance better than many pricy drum kits in the market. Their response is clean, without any overtones, all thanks to the UT heads which ensured that deep, fat notes were present in all three types of drums. The Sonix kit gives great value for money and nothing less than thunderous sounds!

In this hugely competitive part of the market the Sonix kit makes a strong case for consideration

With the exception of a couple of details, the Sonix kit is solidly made and performs well – very well in certain areas.

An astonishingly good drum kit at this price point.

This Sonix Fusion Kit offers performance and stability at a highly competitive price. This drum kit is designed as market entry level, so is perfect for beginners, but includes features normally found on more expensive kits.
