ProLite Features

Simply the best

The core of the ProLite series is the sound spectrum provided by the extremely thin Vintage Maple shells with reinforcement ring. It provides open and crystal clear dynamics. An indistinguishable, soft, warm and very low sound.

Optimum Shell Measurement (O.S.M.)

SONOR implements a slightly narrow outside shell measurement for optimized head contact. This is a SONOR specialty, resulting in excellent tone, better sustain and controlled decay. All shells are formed by only using pressure from the outside in our special moulds.

SONOR ProLite shell design

SONOR cross-laminates shells for superior stability, sonically enhanced resonance and spectacular tone. The CLTF process is a result of years of research by SONOR craftsmen.

SONOR ProLite shell thickness

9 plies for tom toms, floor toms and snare drums = 4 mm + 2 mm Dynamic Edge reinforcement rings at the edges.

12 plies for bass drums = 6 mm + 2 mm Dynamic Edge reinforcement rings at the edges.

Dual Glide System

The DUAL GLIDE SYSTEM represents a snare strainer mechanism. The strainer mechanism features a technically perfected snare wire engage-and-release system, along with great adjustability and a solid look and feel.

Total Acoustic Resonance Mounting System (T.A.R.)

Vibration free mounting results in pure tone and warm sustain. Enhanced by Total Acoustic Resonance and Advanced Projection System your Drum enjoys sonic freedom and stays mechanically stable, resulting in beautiful tone and unmatched projection.

Bass drum claws

The rubber insert beneath the bass drum claws assures that your wooden hoop will not be scratched. The recessed design of the tension rod and the raised synthetic insert of the bass drum claw protects your cases from snagging and scratching damage.
