Jared Shavelson (Boysetsfire) joins SONOR


SONOR is proud to announce the newest addition to its family of artists, Jared Shavelson!

Jared has worked with a number of artists throughout his career, including The Rentals, Howls, Paint It Black, The Hope Conspiracy, Pure Love to name but a few. Most recently, he has been working with Boysetsfire, another tour to celebrate their 20th band anniversary hits off in Europe in October.

Says Jared: "I remember being in my second year of high school and getting called to the music room over the loud speaker during some class I wasn't paying attention in, "Jared Shavelson, please report to Mr. Houghs office." Quick side note, Mr. Hough was my music teacher, the greatest teacher I have ever had, he was my mentor, he pushed me and brought out the love of music I have today, he is the reason I went on studying jazz and continue to learn because he thought me that you're never done learning. I bolted to the music wing only to find a delivery of a new Sonor S Class drum set! I was called to unpack it, tune it and continue to play that drum set for the rest of the day, written out of every class to get that kit warmed up for jazz band after school and the 6:30 band before school the next day. Both of which I played for anyways. That was my introduction to Sonor. Those drums sounded killer! Ever since then I've always wanted to play Sonor."

Welcome to the family!
