What We Think

This X-Ray snare drum has a sonic resemblance to a high-quality metal-shell snare drum. It has plenty of crack and loads of volume potential. It features the Designer series lugs, die cast hoops, and the tension rods feature the slotted-head design fitted with Tune-Safe. This feature is a  tension-rod locking device that squeezes the threads of the rods. Great for maintaining established tuning. Overall condition is great for this unique and rare top of the line snare drum.

Manufacturer's Description from Sonor

The Designer Drums are more than a drum series – it is a concept to meet the highest demands of

more. Since 1875 Sonor has been famous for making state-of-the-art instruments by combining
solid craftsmanship with modern technology. As with series such as Delite, S Class PRO and
Force, the Designer Drums are a fine example of Sonor's commitment to quality and detail. At the
basis of this commitment is an international design team that works out the guidelines for every step of the production process for both drums and hardware.
