SONOR announces new SoundWire models

SONOR, proudly celebrating a tradition of over 135 years of excellence has announced the launch of 6 new SoundWire models to be introduced at Winter NAMM 2013.

The snare wires were developed along with the new Gavin Harrison “Protean” Signature Snare Drum and Gavin himself designed these special 8-strand snare wire configurations for 12” and 14” Snare Drums:

“Straight 8” - features 8 Stainless Steel strands in center position. This snare wire gives a nice clear and crisp bite to the sound.

“EQ” - features 8 Bronze strands off center providing a dry and direct sound.

“Spacer” - features 8 Brass strands in different diameters and unique spacing in between the strands offering a nice warm tone.

SONOR SoundWire snares are made in Germany and each set comes in an attractive wood box that not only looks great but also protects the wires.
