Quality, class, affordability
Sonors’ new AQ1 series is everything a player needs if they are looking to purchase their next serious kit. An ideal step up for a beginner or a reliable additional kit for the professional player, the AQ1 delivers a quality of sound and construction that can be depended on.
100% Birch Shells show a return to old form for Sonor who in their long history have built many a great sounding Birch shell. The AQ1’s 6ply 7.2mm shells sing thanks to the new, unobtrusive ‘SmartMount’ developed by Sonor for this new line. The AQ1 Series was designed & engineered by Sonor at their Bad Berleburg facility in Germany and oozes the quality & class one would expect from such a stalwart brand, whilst maintaining a competitive cost.
This kit features the very classy Piano White High Gloss Lacquer Finish.
Here’s what Sonor have to say about the AQ1 Series:
The AQ1 Series defines the entry into the world of the SONOR Sound; a birch shell kit, completed by a 5-piece 2000 Series hardware pack in 2 popular configurations Stage and Studio. The kits are available in 2 classic, yet stunning high gloss lacquer finishes: Piano Black and Piano White.
The AQ1 Series has been newly designed and engineered from the ground up by the SONOR team in Bad Berleburg, Germany. The visual design includes a new lug & badge specifically for the AQ1 & AQ2 Series plus the new isolating "SmartMount" that allows for significantly better resonance and sustain of the 100% all birch shell rack toms.
"With the introduction of the AQ1, our product portfolio is now complete again. According to our ‘Vision 2020’, in which SONOR focuses on the highest possible quality in particular segments, AQ1 complements and rounds out our product range from top to bottom. [This is] our offering to the ambitious beginner and to the SONOR enthusiast, who is looking for an additional stage-ready drum kit." - Frank Boestfleisch, Sonor Product Manager.
