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 an elegant look.
Woods and Construction:
The 12-ply birch shell produces a bright and aggressive tone with lots of clarity in the top-end, providing you with pronounced rim shots and a fast attack. The snare’s 5” depth helps in delivering a deep tone, ensuring that some low-end punch is present. Stainless steel wires give a sensitive response, allowing you to adjust your playing dynamics without the snare compromising you.
The incredible Art design is finished in a high-gloss lacquer, accompanied by classic chrome-plated hardware. This offers you a very high-end and classy look, with its remarkable tone giving you the whole package.
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 12x5 Birch Snare 12 Ply in Art Design:
The very best snares

During the development process, design is as integral to the final product as sound quality. This attention to detail gives each Artist Snare Drum its own unmistakable character.
