The Sonor SQ2 Drum System is the pinnacle of Sonor's workshop process, representing their highest level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. With finely-tuned manufacturing materials, these Custom kits are a guaranteed way to deliver a unique tone and style to match.
The SQ2s may not be the cheapest kits out there, but the 5-Piece Shell Kit in Birdseye Azure is worth every penny. An exquisite example of premier drum production that sounds as good as it looks.
As well as our in-store offering of preset configurations, you can also build your own custom configuration at the Sonor SQ2 Drum Configurator.
Courtesy of Sonor's Smartmount technology and all-maple shells, the AQ2 is a great entry-to-mid level range for those new to the Sonor ecosystem. Each drum component is easily interchangeable kits, so you can build a custom configuration based around your choice of Toms and Snare with minimum hassle.
Check out the compact AQ2 Bop Kit in Brown Fade - a gorgeous example of the series that remains affordable enough for most.
The Prolite series is Sonor's eco-friendly approach to drum manufacturing. Utilising hand-picked wood selections from eco-friendly resources, precision metal components and a superior lacquering process, each Prolite Kit is the epitome of German manufacturing. The ProLite Series combines superior tone, leading-edge design, function and precision to deliver the perfect balance of sustainability and quality. A supremely versatile kit for any level of player or style of music.
The 3-Piece Prolite Elder Tree Kit is our favourite, allowing scope for kit expansion to your personal tastes.
Sonor also produces a top-quality range of snare drums. Our current PMT Staff Favourite is the Benny Greb Signature Snare! Combining a blend of tradition and innovation, filled with passion and strict attention to detail, this snare is stunning in both style and sound.
