From Dream to Drum
Sonor and Benny Greb first started working on this signature snare in 2010 with the goal of creating a snare that’s as versatile and musical as Benny himself.
Combining a blend of tradition and innovation, filled with passion and strict attention to detail, this snare is stunning in both style and sound.
Initially a 13” x 5.75” snare may seem like a strange choice because most snares feature a standard 5", 5.5” or 6.5” depth.
Benny selected a 5.75” snare drum because of his experience using a wide variety of different snares in various sizes.
His two most favoured snares were a pair of Sonor SQ2 drums, both of which were 13” and had a thin beech construction.
However, one was 6.5” and the other 5” and Benny says he found himself switching between the two often.
While the 5” offered a better response in higher tunings and delivered wonderful delicate ghost notes, the 6.5” provided a more open tone and superior body.
Benny, therefore, chose a depth that’s between the two in order to achieve the best of both options.
The result is a handmade snare that is easy to tune, delivers fat, funky tone, clear highs and has a great snare wire response.
Delivering the vintage style of older snare drums, this Benny Greb signature snare is constructed from beech to deliver a wonderfully warm, transparent tone.
The shell is a thin 9 ply / 5mm thick and as a result produces beautifully resonant tone, while the beech wood offers its characteristic pronounced highs and mids and luscious punchy low end.
Producing a superb combination of sensitive response and focused projection, this is a versatile snare that has a wide tuning range and is capable of fulfilling the most diverse demands.
Whether you want the light delicacy of jazz or need the full-on impact of metal, this snare is able to adapt to achieve the exact sound you need.
The shell is finished with 45 degree bearing edges to give a modern twist to the quintessentially vintage shell and offer robust projection and attack.
For well rounded, fat punch and cutting projection, look no further than the Sonor Benny Greb signature snare.
The exterior of the 13” snare features a beautiful outer veneer of Scandinavian Birch to provide a strikingly sophisticated aesthetic.
The rich darker grain of the birch perfectly accentuates the light colour of the wood to provide a look filled with timeless style.
The centre of the shell is adorned with a synthetic design ring to add a sleek style twist to the appearance that perfectly captures the blend of tradition and innovation that this snare is based on.
Offering a personalised touch to the signature drum, this Sonor snare is fitted with a cartoon head Benny Greb badge which features a print of Benny’s signature.
