SONOR Artist John Miceli visits the SONOR factory

SONOR Artist John Miceli visits the SONOR factory during the
Meat Loaf „Three Bats –Seize the Night“ World Tour.

Last week, the SONOR headquarter in Aue hosted two very special guests: long time SONOR artist John Miceli and his drumtech Joe Libretti made a visit whilst having a day off on the recent Meat Loaf Tour, that leads them through sold out venues all over the world!

Says John: “I’ve been endorsing SONOR for more than 13 years now, and the craftsmanship, especially on the shells, has been exciting ever since.”

On the actual tour with Meat Loaf that is running until 2008, John uses an SQ2 Series Drumkit in Red Sparkle, consisting of 26x16” Bass Drum, 16x16” and 18x16” Floor Tom, 22x16” Gong Tom, 13x9” Tom Tom and a 14x6” Snare Drum. The vintage style shells are made out of North American maple.
