The SQ2 Drum System represents SONOR’s extensive know-how in drum making and sound design. Building upon more than 140 years of manufacturing experience, this range of custom instruments offers the ultimate in SONOR craftsmanship. It is the flagship within the SONOR drum programme.
SQ2 is more than a drum series. It is a concept both of making drums and selecting drums. With an almost unlimited variety of shell – size – finish combinations, SQ2 is the most individualised series in SONOR’s history, offering the most unique drums you have ever dreamed of playing.
This SQ2 has been custom designed by us using the SQ2 Configurator. We have opted for Vintage Maple shells on toms and a Medium Maple bass drum shell. Click here to make your own spec: https://www.sq2-drumsystem.com/

Optimum Shell Measurement (OSM): SONOR implements a slightly narrow outside shell measurement for optimised head contact. This is a SONOR speciality, resulting in excellent tone, better sustain and controlled decay.
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. All shells are measured and precisely cut to perfection.
45 Degree Bearing Edge: SONOR drums feature a 45 degree bearing edge, designed and introduced by SONOR in 1975, which is an important component of the signature SONOR sound.
Total Acoustic Resonance: The Total Acoustic Resonance (T.A.R.) mounting system – vibration free mounting results in pure tone and warm sustain. Enhanced by the total acoustic resonance and advanced projection system, your drum enjoys sonic freedom and stays mechanically stable, resulting in beautiful tone and unmatched projection. The patented acoustigate allows you to fine-tune your sonic fingerprint by turning a dial, it has never been easier.
Advanced Projection System: The SQ2 system also includes hidden features such as the patented Advanced Projection System (APS) which prevents direct contact between the wood veneers and metal housing which supports the powerful SONOR sustain.
Tunesafe: All SONOR lugs are equipped with the patented TuneSafe, which prevents the tension rods from loosening. TuneSafe supports maximum tuning stability even under extreme environments. Square-head tension rods with fine-pitch threads guarantee optimum tunability. Keeping you right in tune, 100% of the time.
