Ply Shell Snare Drum Shootout: Brady vs. Sonor Prolite vs. Pork Pie Percussion

SoundPure Drum Expert, Barry Knain, compares three different ply shell snare drums in a blind shootout. In this video, we will showcase Brady, Sonor Prolite, and Pork Pie Percussion snare drums in a full kit setup. Each snare was recorded using a Josephson E22s mic on top and a Shure SM57 mic on bottom. All mics used in this shootout were processed through our Phoenix DRS8 Preamp and Apogee Symphony converter. To get the results, or the high res files to compare for yourself, shoot us an email at Drums@soundpure.com.

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.

Specifications

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.

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.
