Sonor’s impeccable reputation speaks for itself, and their Artist Series Snares are collaboratively designed between the company and some of the world’s best drummers. Made in Germany, these incredibly high-spec snares have unparalleled build and sound quality, as well as a classy look.
Woods and Construction:
The beech shell produces a fat tone with lots of low-end, giving a deep sound – ideal for funk or electronic music. The relatively small 13” x 5” size however keeps the snare sounding punchy and defined, and will still stand out in a busy mix.
The beautiful Tineo outer shell is finished in a high gloss lacquer, and combined with the timeless chrome-finished hardware, you get an elegant-looking snare that matches its incredible tone.
Dual Glide System:
The Dual Glide System snare strainer is a great feature of the Artist Series snares. 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.
The strainer and butt sides are also both armed with a fast-release snare wire detach function. This means that you can easily change the resonant head without having to loosen and adjust the Snare wires. A very ergonomic feature indeed.
Here’s what Sonor say about the Artist Series 13x5 Beech Snare 28 Ply in Tineo:
