Sonor’s impeccable reputation speaks for itself, and their amazing ProLite Series Snares continue to drive their legacy. Made in Germany, these incredibly high-spec snares have unparalleled build and sound quality, at an affordable price-point.
Materials and Construction:
The maple shell produces a warm and pronounced low-end with lots of clarity in the mid-range and top-end. The snare’s 5” depth helps in delivering a rich tone with some low-end presence, with its 13” width keeping it tight and defined.
Its dimensions and construction also give it more dynamic range, meaning you can play sensitively or full-out without the snare compromising your style of playing. Producing a full-bodied and balanced tone, this snare is versatile enough to use for a variety of styles, and can easily cut through any mix.
The incredible ebony w/ white stripes finish is covered in a high-gloss lacquer, accompanied by timeless chrome-plated hardware. This provides you with a very high-end looking snare, with its outstanding tone matching its classy aesthetic.
Dual Glide System:
The Dual Glide System snare strainer is a great feature of the ProLite 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.
