“Wherever my ideas lead me to, Sonor drums bring them to life.”



Gavin Harrison

“I believe every drummer has an inner voice they‘re trying to convey. Sonor drums articulate that inner voice and help me express my true drum personality. 
Sonor drums speak my language.”


Jack DeJohnette

“I always think of the drum set as a piano. I have been playing Sonor drums for more than 40 years and have always appreciated the innovative and consistent high quality of their instruments. I know I can always count on Sonor drums to give me the kind of sound quality that helps inspire my creative ideas.”

– Jack DeJohnette

Jack DeJohnette is considered one of the most inspirational musicians today. Known for his innovative performances with Miles Davis he has a recorded legacy that is second to no other jazz drummer. He has performed with Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, 
Pat Metheny and Herbie Hancock just to name a few.
