Sonor launches new AQ2 Series of drums

The new AQ2 Series from Sonor has been launched on September 23 and 24 at the UK Drum Show in Manchester. 2 days later on September 26 at 6:00 pm the AQ2 Series was introduced online at a live event on and Facebook live. Canadian Sonor Artist Emmanuelle Caplette asked Sonor Product Manager Frank Boestfleisch what makes the AQ2 Series drums so special.

Like that defined Sound which is facilitated by 100% maple shells and the new designed "SmartMount". The minimalistic yet functional design of the "SmartMount" avoids unnecessary drilling holes and metal to shell contact. This leads to better sustain and better visibility of the shell surface.

Which leads to the professional look of the kits. Maple shells and 4 hi-gloss lacquerings to choose from. Additionally there's a classic white marine pearl wrap from Delmar available.

Unique individuality. The choice of configurations and sizes is pretty much unique in this price range. You can choose out of 5 standard sets and extend and mix and match these to your individual needs. The same finishes and shell hardware within the AQ2 Series allow for countless options.

Stage: 22"x17,5"BD, 14"x6"SD, 10"x7"TT, 12"x8"TT, 16"x15"FT
