Dual glide

Our innovative DGS (Dual Glide System) snare strainer offers a new standard of precise and smooth snare action combined with clever features in detail like the detachable snare wire attachment.

Inspired by classics

From the classic racing tracks of Europe to the Malecón in Havana, our inspiration for the look and feel of our new SQ1 drum series came from many sources. Inspired by vintage car designs we put together a palette of four unique lacquer finishes. Each of these colors is precision hand lacquered at the ­Sonor factory and finished with a special matte coating that gives each drum its exclusive touch.

All SQ1 drums are hand lacquered and finished at the Sonor factory in Germany in an 8 step process.
