What We Think

Sonor is known worldwide for their commitment to producing only the highest quality drums, and this beautiful ProLite kit is no exception to that rule. Constructed from thin maple shells, this set of drum boasts a tremendous amount of fat low end, while still maintaining a fantastic amount of articulation to go with the body. Additionally, the 45-degree bearing edges accentuate the beefy sound of these drums by promoting a fast, punchy attack.

Sonor has begun moving away from the ProLite series in favor of their top-end SQ2 line of drums, meaning that we've seen a massive reduction of ProLite kits in North America. If you've dreamed of owning a Sonor kit, now is the perfect time to claim one for yourself.

Manufacturer's Description from Sonor

 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.
