This is a timeless color that is stunning visually to match its incredible sound. Its constructed from a 9ply beech shell along with redesigned 2.3 triple flanged Superprofil hoops made from steel. These hoops are a throw back from the 50s and are matched with teardrop style lugs equipped with the tunesafe system that keeps tension rods in place and free from loosening while playing. This snare comes with a Coated Ambassador top head and a Ambassador snare side head.
The SONOR team, in cooperation with artists and collectors, worked tirelessly to bring the Vintage Series line of instruments as close as possible to the look, feel and sound of its predecessor the Teardrop drums. SONOR then combined its knowledge of modern drum building with the look and sound of vintage drums to create an instrument that will hold up to todays modern playing. Utilizing rounded bearing edges on all drums, the VINTAGE Series represents the return of the old SONOR sound into its product line. SONOR introduced the 45 degree bearing edge in 1975, which is still in use today on all SQ2, Prolite, and Force series drums. With the addition of the Vintage Series, drummers will have access to a complete palette of sounds that is uniquely SONOR.
