What We Think

I always get butterflies in my stomach whenever special-edition drums come to the shop, and this beautiful One of a Kind Snare Drum from Sonor evokes those same feelings of excitement. Featuring hybrid Maple/Birch/Maple shell (one of the first hybrid shells constructed by Sonor), this drum offers a well-rounded, balanced tone (thanks to the Maple) with slightly enhanced high-end (due to the Birch). The die-cast hoops included with this snare serve to focus the tone into a crisp, articulate attack. 

Tonal characteristics aside, this drum sports a veneer of beautiful Etimoe, a hardwood native to West Africa. These limited-edition snares represent the pinnacle of craftsmanship that Sonor has developed over a century of drum-building. The reddish-brown sheen of this wood is accented by immaculate chrome hardware. Because these drums are limited to 99 pieces worldwide, it behooves any lover of Sonor Drums to secure theirs as soon as possible, lest they miss the opportunity to own a beautiful piece of Sonor history.
