Ken Hensley & Live Fire
"I have played on lots of different drums and brands through the years and every time I thought I had found the perfect drums. That was before I got my first Sonor SQ2 kit with Vintage Beech shells. It is the best sounding drums I've ever heard. It has a warm tone with massive punch and the look is amazing. I'm extremely proud of being a part of the Sonor family"
