Raul Vargas


''I've played Sonor for many years, in symphonic orchestras, drum clinics and shows. As a drum teacher I've been able to teach many students with Sonor as well. To me it is the best drum brand, because it has a model for each musical situation, and all of them are incredible. It's an honor to be part of the Sonor family.''
