Sonor - Drums & Hardware.

For decades SONOR has supported the constant improvement of percussion instruments on a scientific level. The close cooperation with research institutes, renowned musicologists and leading artists builds the basis for these efforts. Several groundbreaking developments were made possible by these mutual activities. An example is the optimization of the resonance properties of drum shells. In the area of mallet instruments, vibraphones, metallophones and glockenspiels SONOR has introduced major improvements in quality standards. Also concert and marching percussion instruments have seen considerable further developments.

Sonor Ascent Force

Drum Kits: The SONOR Ascent series marks the revival of the famous Beech shell construction that has been a trademark of SONOR throughout the decades. Equipped with the latest features and technology, the Ascent series is the perfect symbiosis between the Select Force and ProLite series of Drum sets. Any player, any style will appreciate the timeless quality and tremendous sound. Spectacular high quality Sparkles, solid lacquered Finishes and stunning wood Veneers highlight the high end look of the Ascent series. A feature taken from SONOR’s premium line SQ2 is the black chrome hardware with certain finishes underscoring the timeless design of the Ascent series. Get electrified with quality and sound in perfection!

SONOR’s design team worked closely with some of the top SONOR artists to create the proper sound. The result of this collaboration are thin Beech shells for all bass drums and thick Beech shells for snare drums, tom toms and floor toms. The result is a full rich tone, powerful and clear. No matter where you play it, the woodshed, the recording studio or the stage, you’ll lay down a perfect performance with the Ascent series.
The Beech shells deliver maximum strength, perfect curving and neutral tuning, due to the tension-free cross lamination of individual plies of wood (CLTF Cross Laminated Tension Free Process).

9 plies for tom toms, floor toms and snare drums = 8.75 mm, 7 plies for bass drums = 6.35 mm
2.3 mm SONOR Power Hoops on all tom toms and floor toms. 14" snare drums are equipped with die-cast hoops.
A large selection of individual components provide perfect add-ons for an even bigger performance – ideal for live gigs requiring multiple setups.

The vibration-free T.A.R. system (Total Acoustic Resonance) with APS (Advanced Projection System) provides maximum resonance and sustain.
Rubber padding beneath the bass drum claws protects the wooden hoop against damage. Position clamps (Memory Locks) ‘remember’ your preferred bass drum spur height. The bass drum feet can be converted from rubber to metal by turning the rubber foot. Fixing the position by a fastening screw. All SONOR lugs are equipped with the TuneSafe feature, which prevents tension rods from loosening during hard rim shots or where batter heads have been loosely tuned. The Hardware 400 series provides solid double-braced stands for maximum stability and reliability. The SONOR 3-segment clamp offers maximum support for very little effort – whether for jazz or power drumming.

Sonor Essential Force

Drum Kits: The SONOR Essential Force series is designed for advanced drummers not willing to sacrifice their musical freedom. Five preconfigured sets and 12 individual components offer unlimited possibilities for a drummer’s individual configuration.

The 6 ply birchwood shells are a superb foundation for SONOR Essential Force sets. A hefty and dynamic sound – with accentuated mid-ranges and highs, and defined lows – are the hallmark of these shells. With high-gloss-lacquered natural wood surfaces, SONOR’s Essential Force really steals the show. Birchwood shells deliver maximum strength, perfect curving and neutral tuning — thanks to tension-free cross lamination of the individual plies of wood (CLTF Cross Laminated Tension Free Process). 6 plies for bass drums, tom toms, floor toms and snare drums = 7.2 mm

A large selection of individual components provide perfect add-ons for an even bigger performance – ideal for live gigs requiring multiple setups. The vibration-free T.A.R. system (Total Acoustic Resonance) with APS (Advanced Projection System) provides maximum resonance and sustain. The standard Essential Force series bass drum ships with a mount. The inner workings of the mount are built for a strong and secure base; thanks to a smooth yet firm application of pressure. Rubber padding beneath the bass drum claws protects the wooden hoop against damage. Position clamps (Memory Locks) ‘remember’ your preferred bass drum spur height. The bass drum feet can be converted from rubber to metal by turning the rubber foot. Fixing the position by a fastening screw. Pre-muffled batter and resonance heads on the bass drum provide ‘allround’ powerful sounds and dynamic ‘kicks’. SONOR heads made by REMO. The new SONOR Force tuning lugs with fine-pitch threads are equipped with the TuneSafe feature, which prevents tension rods from loosening.

Sonor ProLite Series

Drum Kits: The heritage of over 135 years of Drum making experience meets the passion, knowledge and creativity of SONOR’s international team of design engineers, professional players, distributors and retailers. Using only the finest hand-picked wood selections from eco-friendly resources, precision metal components, and a superior lacquering process, each Drum is a piece of art. Made and assembled with care to meet advanced demands and set the bar for professional drums, ProLite combines superior tone, leading-edge design, function and precision to deliver the perfect tools for your musical inspirations. The perfect match for your gig, no matter what style you play!

SONOR ProLite Sound
The core of the ProLite series is the sound spectrum provided by the extremely thin Vintage Maple shells with reinforcement ring. These provide an unmistakably open sound and an enormously wide tuning range for practically all styles of music. SONOR’s Vintage Maple shell is characterized by a soft, warm tone that highlights the lower pitches and provides balance in the mid-range and treble, without sacrificing projection and power.

SONOR ProLite Shell Design
Cross Laminated Tension Free Process (CLTF) - SONOR cross-laminates shells for superior stability, sonically enhanced resonance and spectacular tone. The CLTF process is a result of years of research by SONOR craftsmen.

Optimum Shell Measurement (OSM) - SONOR implements a slightly narrow outside shell measurement for optimized head contact. This is a SONOR specialty, resulting in excellent tone, better sustain and controlled decay.

SONOR ProLite Shell Thicknesses
9 plies for tom toms, floor toms and snare drums = 4 mm + 2 mm Dynamic Edge reinforcement rings at the edge of the shells 12 plies for bass drums = 6 mm + 2 mm Dynamic Edge reinforcement rings at the edge of the shells

Power Hoops – Clean Tuning and Crisp Attack!
2.3 mm SONOR Power Hoops on all snare drums, tom toms and floor toms. For 14" snare drums also die-cast hoops are available.

Redesigned (T.A.R.) Total Acoustic Resonance Mounting System
Vibration free mounting results in pure tone and warm sustain. Enhanced by Total Acoustic Resonance and Advanced Projection System (APS) your Drum enjoys sonic freedom and stays mechanically stable, resulting in beautiful tone and unmatched projection.

The patented Advanced Projection System (APS)
prevents direct contact between wood and metal, and supports the powerful SONOR sustain. Equipped with the APS rubber insulators are the tom mounting system, the bass drum mount, the bass drum spurs and floor tom legs.

Bass Drum Claws – Beautiful and Practical
The rubber insert beneath the bass drum claws assures that your wooden hoop will not be scratched. The recessed design of the tension rod and the raised synthetic insert of the bass drum claw protects your cases from snagging and scratching damage.

Bass Drum Spurs – Quick and Easy Set-Up!
SONOR spurs, refined over time, are the most reliable and stylish spurs in the industry. Memory Locks ‘remember’ your preferred bass drum spur adjustment.

Bass Drum Feet – On Solid Footing, Wherever You Go!
The bass drum feet can be converted from rubber to metal by turning the rubber foot. Fixing the position by a fastening screw.

TuneSafe – Right in Tune, 100% of the Time!
All SONOR lugs are equipped with the patented TuneSafe, which prevents the tension rods from loosening. Tune Safe supports maximum tuning stability even under extreme environments. Square-head tension rods with fine-pitch threads guarantee optimum tunability.

Jojo Mayer Perfect Balance Pedal

Giant_Pedal_Middle.jpg

Jodi Mayer: Over the past two decades, I acquired and played pretty much every pedal on the market. Unfortunately, I could never find a pedal that really worked for me. I found that compared to some legendary vintage pedals from the fifties, most contemporary pedals have plenty of speed and throw on the forward motion, but sluggish response on the beater return.

Once the original vintage designs were altered to meet the demand for more striking power, the perfectly balanced action got lost and became top heavy. Like an unbalanced stick, this becomes a considerable disadvantage to execute many of my pedal techniques which allow me to generate effortless speed without sacrificing power. Many pedals try to compensate for this problem with elaborate adjustability but only with limited success.

So I started my quest to put together a perfectly balanced pedal that matches the requirements of today’s music. For about six years I experimented with different parts,drive systems and footboards until I had the blueprint for the pedal that you have in front of you. Other than the action, easy portability and quick set up was a main concern to me. At that point SONOR joined the project and contributed their German precision engineering and an innovative solution for the folding mechanism and self-mounting hoop clamp that works at the push of a button.

The Perfect Balance Pedal is a carefully calibrated system that optimizes the linear translation of your foot movements and makes many adjustments expendable.It was designed with a principle in mind that reflects ultimate sophistication to me: Simplicity.

Essentially, it could be described as the soul and feel of a vintage pedal reincarnated in the technology of a 21st century body.
