Sonor's impeccable reputation speaks for itself, and this highly limited "One of a Kind" snare drum would make a fantastic addition to any kit setup. A true collector's piece, this premium snare has been constructed by Sonor's elite builders in Germany, made to only the highest standards.
Woods and Construction
The hybrid Maple/Beech shell is a first for Sonor, looking to break new sonic ground with a unique and potent-sounding snare drum. This combination of woods provides a big, punchy tone, with plenty of low-end grunt and mid-range cut. The snare's 7" depth offers a full-sounding bellow, with its 13" width keeping it tight and defined.
Thanks to the dimensions and construction, this snare lends itself well to varied dynamics, meaning you can play sensitively or hard without the drum hindering your playing style.
The gorgeous Mango veneer will inspire you to play this incredible snare, paired with elegant black chrome hardware. This offers a very high-end aesthetic, with its remarkable tone matching its classy and sleek look.
Dual Glide System
The Dual Glide System snare strainer is another fantastic feature of this stunning snare. This mechanism provides a precise and smooth action when placing the snare wires in on or off position, and ensures that there are no annoying buzzing sounds produced when doing so.
Here's what Sonor say about the "One Of A Kind" 2018 Mango 13 x 7 Maple/Beech Snare Drum:
The stunning naturally grown veneers make each snare drum as unique as your fingerprint. We select a specific tree for each edition, then our master builders apply the veneers to the outside and the inside of the shell. Our extensive high-gloss lacquering method brings depth to the precious wooden surface - a SONOR hallmark.
For the first time, we used hybrid shells made from Maple & Beech, which brings a new sonic addition to the "One-of-a-Kind“ snare drum collection. The instruments laser cut badges highlight the iconic mallet logo, made out of the same veneers used on the snares. SONOR is environmentally conscience and only uses veneers sourced from certified and resource-saving trade partners.
