ProLite Updates 2019

The "Lite" series have a long tradition at SONOR. Already in 1983 the "SONORLITE" series was presented. In 1988 came "HiLite" and then in 2000 the "Delite" series, which was finally replaced in 2012 by the ProLite series. All SONOR "Lite" series have become classics and are appreciated by drummers around the world for their incomparable SONOR sound.

In today's fast paced world, it's good to be able to rely on something consistent. Unchanged remains the characteristic sound of the Vintage Maple Shell and the high-quality, elegant shell hardware, which differs only slightly from our custom flagship line SQ² and thus represents the pinnacle of SONOR drum construction art in series production.

However, the adjustments in the ProLite series are not just cosmetic, although the 3 new, high-quality veneer finishes are the most obvious changes. Especially the shell sizes and set configurations meet the requirements of a young, demanding generation of drummers.

Whenever superstars like Gavin Harrison, Jost Nickel and Aaron Spears travel around the world and can not bring their personal SONOR set with them, they know they can rely on the ProLite sound.
