DUAL GLIDE SYSTEM Snare Strainer Mechanism

SONOR, proudly celebrating 137 years of tradition of excellence, has announced the launch of new products, to be introduced at the Winter NAMM Show 2012 in Anaheim, CA, USA.

A new and innovative Snare Mechanism is now incorporated into the new Prolite Series, as well as the SQ² and Artist Series snare drums. The new strainer mechanism features a technically perfected snare wire engage-and-release system, along with great adjustability and a solid look and feel.

“DUAL GLIDE SYSTEM” refers to the precise and smooth action, which in turn eliminates any un-wanted sounds when the snare wires are placed in "on" or "off" position. Both the strainer and butt sides are equipped with a fast-release snare wire detach function, allowing the drummer to change the resonant head without having to loosen and adjust the Snare wires. A fine-tune adjustment knob is employed on both sides. Thanks to the well thought-out design and construction, the new strainer also works to replace the current strainer on any Made in Germany drum series, and will be available as an individual component for retro-fit onto any Sonor snare drum!
