"SONOR drums have remained my first and only choice as a high quality instrument for the past 40 years. My sound is the ’SONOR sound’, I can‘t imagine playing any other drum kit." Steve Smith
One Of A Kind
Steve Smith, one of the world’s greatest drummers, has been endorsing SONOR Drums for more then 30 years – more than just a good reason to celebrate with a Steve Smith Signature Snare Drum model. Steve and the SONOR engineers created a true masterpiece that is addicted to sound, features, design and most of all, Steve’s input. The 14" x 5.5" Signature Snare Drum is an outstanding instrument, made out of an exclusive, 2.5 mm cast steel shell / 2.5 mm reinforcement rings and two air vents. Vintage style Phonic lugs with integrated TuneSafe are in place for a vintage look, and die-cast hoops and a REMO fiberskyn 3 batter head in Diplomat thickness add to the overall effect of what Steve is looking for in a snare drum: a crisp, full-bodied instrument with an immediate and effortless playing response. Besides the Signature badge, Steve’s Signature is engraved on a Re-Issue of the "Hilite Exclusive" badge, adding another "Vintage SONOR" touch. Steve uses this instrument in studio sessions and live on tour with Journey, Vital Information and Jazz Legacy.
