Sonor - Snare Drums.

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.

Features; The main feature of this Artist Snare Drum is the massive, 27 ply (and hence 28 mm thick) beechwood shell; this gives the snare a ‘hefty’ sound. It is deep, with lots of ‘bottom’, and yet transparent. Well suited for funk, fusion, jungle or electronic beats. The 24k gold-plated fittings, combined with a lustrous lacquer finish, are a real show stopper.
