The rounded bearing edge creates more head contact, which generates a beefier and little shorter sound in comparison to the 45 degree cut shells. The result is a warm, dry but yet resonant sound that you’ll notice on older drum records.
SONOR Vintage Series Beech Shell Design: 9‐ply / 6 mm cross laminated tension free (CLTF) on all drums.
VINTAGE snare drums feature a new throw off. The ‘Super 50’, a completely redesigned strainer, was inspired by the throw off which was used on the SONOR D-411 and D-412 snares in the 1950’s.
SONOR has redesigned the original “Superprofil” hoop from the 1950s – a 2.3 mm triple flanged steel hoop with classic shape on snare drum, tom toms and floor toms.
All SONOR lugs are equipped with the patented TuneSafe, which prevents the tension rods from loosening. Tune Safe supports maximum tuning stability even under extreme environments. Square-head tension rods with fine-pitch threads guarantee optimum tunability.
