PRODUCT NEWS 2014: Ascent & Force Finish News


SONOR, proudly celebrating a tradition of over 135 years of excellence has announced the addition of several new finishes to the Select Force, Essential Force and Ascent Series to be introduced at Winter NAMM 2014.

The Ascent Series marks the revival of the famous Beech shell construction that has been a trademark of SONOR throughout the decades. While developing the series SONOR's design team has worked closely with some of the top SONOR artists and sound specialists to create the proper sound. Thin Beech shells for all bass drums and thick Beech shells for snare drums, tom toms and floor toms result in full rich tone, powerful and clear.

The newest additions to the finish family are Coral Red (high gloss) and Matte Black (with black hardware).

The Essential Force Series was designed for the advanced drummers who are not willing to sacrifice their musical freedom. 6 ply Birchwood shells are the superb foundation for these kits, creating a dynamic sound range.

A high gloss Creme White is now available in the Essential Force range.

The pinnacle of the Force Series, Select Force, was designed especially for advanced and semi-professional drummers. The 7 ply Canadian Maple shell offers uncompromisingly rich and warm sounds, highlight lower pitches and provide balance in the mid-range and treble.

Select Force Series drums are now additionally offered in the new Transparent Black Burst and Blue Galaxy Sparkle finishes.
