The perfect match for your gig, no matter what style you play!

SONOR ProLite Sound

The core of the ProLite series is the sound spectrum provided by the extremely thin Vintage Maple shells with reinforcement ring. These provide an unmistakably open sound and an enormously wide tuning range for practically all styles of music. SONOR’s Vintage Maple shell is characterized by a soft, warm tone that highlights the lower pitches and provides balance in the mid-range and treble, without sacrificing projection and power.

SONOR ProLite Shell Design

Cross Laminated Tension Free Process (CLTF) - SONOR cross-laminates shells for superior stability, sonically enhanced resonance and spectacular tone. The CLTF process is a result of years of research by SONOR craftsmen.

Optimum Shell Measurement (OSM) - SONOR implements a slightly narrow outside shell measurement for optimized head contact. This is a SONOR specialty, resulting in excellent tone, better sustain and controlled decay.

SONOR ProLite Shell Thicknesses

9 plies for tom toms, floor toms and snare drums = 4 mm + 2 mm Dynamic Edge reinforcement rings at the edge of the shells

12 plies for bass drums = 6 mm + 2 mm Dynamic Edge reinforcement rings at the edge of the shells

Power Hoops – Clean Tuning and Crisp Attack!

2.3 mm SONOR Power Hoops on all snare drums, tom toms and floor toms. For 14" snare drums also die-cast hoops are available.

Redesigned (T.A.R.) Total Acoustic Resonance Mounting System

Vibration free mounting results in pure tone and warm sustain. Enhanced by Total Acoustic Resonance and Advanced Projection System (APS) your Drum enjoys sonic freedom and stays mechanically stable, resulting in beautiful tone and unmatched projection.

The patented Advanced Projection System (APS)

prevents direct contact between wood and metal, and supports the powerful SONOR sustain. Equipped with the APS rubber insulators are the tom mounting system, the bass drum mount, the bass drum spurs and floor tom legs.

TuneSafe – Right in Tune, 100% of the Time!

All SONOR lugs are equipped with the patented TuneSafe, which prevents the tension rods from loosening. Tune Safe supports maximum tuning stability even under extreme environments. Square-head tension rods with fine-pitch threads guarantee optimum tunability.
