What We Think

SONOR Teardrop kits are one of the most sought-after vintage drums. The SONOR team, in cooperation with artists and collectors, worked tirelessly to bring the new Vintage drum line as close as possible to the look, feel and the sound of its predecessor the Teardrop drums. SONOR then combined its knowledge of modern drum building, with the look and sound of vintage drums, to create an instrument that will hold up to today's modern playing. SONOR introduced the 45-degree bearing edge in 1975, which is still used today on all SQ2, Prolite, and AQ2 series drums. With the addition of the Vintage Series, drummers will have access to a complete palette of sounds that is uniquely SONOR. 

Manufacturer's Description from Sonor

Like in the original Teardrop drums, the VINTAGE drum series feature hand‐selected premium German Beech shells with rounded bearing edges. We have carefully recreated the look and feel of the 1950's teardrop lug and updated it with SONOR's exclusive Tunesafe™ system. Being sure not to overlook any details, SONOR has redesigned the Superprofil triple flanged hoops and brought back the timeless SONOR badge and logo used in between 1952 and 1961.
