What We Think

Standing at the forefront of European drum building, Sonor are constantly developing new ideas and products to offer the spirit of their craft to drummers at all price points. In order to meet the needs of today’s gigging drummers, Sonor has introduced the AQ2 series. Made from 100% Maple shells, AQ2 drums have a wonderfully versatile tone that can fit into almost any style of music. Available in Martini, Safari, Bop, Studio, and Stage configurations with a number of add-ons, AQ2 drums stand out for their versatility and affordability. Drummers can get into a Stage sized kit with 22” bass drum for classic rock covers on Friday, and add on an 18” bass drum for jazz night on Saturday. Round that off with Sonor’s legacy of quality, and you’ll soon see why AQ2 drums are a force to be reckoned with.

Manufacturer's Description from Sonor

SOUND DEFINED. BE INDIVIDUAL. LOOK AMAZING.

With the AQ2 Series of drums, you can sound like the pros. All maple shells and our new SmartMount facilitate this. German engineering inside.

We offer five standard configurations to start with, all featuring our popular 7-ply all maple shell construction (4 plies of Canadian maple, 3 plies of Chinese maple). The drums share fittings and finishes, offering the flexibility to mix and match within the whole AQ2 Series.

The AQ2 Series drums come with newly designed shell hardware and a new tom mounting system: the SmartMount. This minimalistic yet functional mount has the true German design and engineering spirit inside: optimal sound sustain with a minimal amount of hardware on the drum shell.
