What We Think

Using only the finest hand-picked wood selections from eco-friendly resources, precision metal components, and a superior lacquering process, the SQ2 series brings the best of everything that Sonor has to offer. 

This heavy Beech shell drum provides an unmistakably focused sound and an enormously wide tuning range that you've come to know and love from Sonor. The straight shell design adds a bit more focus and projection when compared to the vintage shell design, but it doesn't sacrifice sensitivity. Beech provides a little more low end than maple as well as a little something extra in the mid-frequency range that helps this tonewood stand apart. When combined with Sonor's bearing edge technology, precision lugs, and the Dual-Glide strainer system, you'll find the SQ2 series of snare drums to be a new source of musical inspiration. 

The deep 12-ply shells are the core of the Signature sound. Due to this careful construction, every shell has a high flectional strength.

Manufacturer's Description from Sonor

The construction of the Signature Series drum shells is different than that of conventional drums. The 12-ply shells are formed tension free from selected woods. Tension free means that the single plies for a solid sound unity, thus allowing the drum head an optimum of vibration.

The inner and outer plies of a drum also have an influence on the sound. Because of their special structure and their outstanding acoustic properties, Sonor chose African Bubinga (offered here) and Indonesian Makassar Ebony. Firmly joined to the basic plies, they contribute to the balanced sound of the Signature Series.
