Highlighting the high-end nature of this stunning drum kit, this Sonor ProLite features a beautiful Elder Tree finish.
The gorgeous swirled aesthetic of the Elder Tree grain is filled with various shades of brown, grey and red to provide a stylishly sophisticated aesthetic.
The striking standout look of the shells is complemented perfectly by the all chrome hardware.
A really unique kit in terms of style and sound, this Sonor ProLite Elder Tree drum kit is the essence of high-end percussion.
This Sonor ProLite drum kit features shells that are constructed from extremely thin vintage maple and fitted with reinforcement rings.
The 12” rack tom and 14” floor tom are 9 plies / 4mm thick while the bass drum is 12 plies / 6mm thick and all of the shells are finished with 2mm reinforcement rings at the edges.
Delivering an unmistakably open sound and an enormously wide tuning range, this Sonor drum kit offers superbly versatile tone.
From the thunderous power of rock to the higher pitched intricacy of jazz and everything in between, this drum kit is capable of accommodating a range of sounds and styles.
Characterised by their soft warm tone, the Sonor Vintage Maple shells produce full low-end pitch combined with well balanced mids and highs that offer projection and power.
Whether you need the cut for live performance or want the full depth of tone for studio recording, this kit has the versatility to make sure you always achieve the exact tone you require.
After years of extensive research and development, Sonor have utilised the optimum production processes to deliver their ProLite drums.
Designed to offer superior stability and excellent sustain, Sonor combine two specific techniques to achieve their shell construction.
The first of these methods is the Cross Laminated Tension Free Process which involves the alternating of the shell plies to deliver superior stability, sonically enhanced resonance and spectacular tone.
The second is the use of an Optimum Shell Measurement which involves the outside of the shells having a slightly narrow measurement to optimise the contact between the head and the drum.
This Sonor speciality ensures the shells provide excellent tone, better sustain and controlled decay.
The combination of these two specific processes serves to ensure this stunning 3-piece kit delivers full, robust resonance, impressively wide-ranging tone and unparalleled sustain.
The innovative, painstaking attention to detail does not stop with the shell construction, it is also present throughout the hardware design.
Sonor have engineered their tom mounting system to offer precise tom placement without impeding the resonance of the shell.
That’s why their redesigned Total Acoustic Resonance Mounting System, or TAR for short, attaches to the shell of the drum at 4 lug points.
Linking to the drum via the shell hardware instead of attaching directly to the wooden shell enables the TAR to deliver vibration free mounting that results in pure tone and warm sustain.
Sonor have also developed a patented Advanced Projection System that is featured throughout the drum kit hardware to provide sustain support.
This innovative system features rubber insulators positioned in the tom mounting system, bass drum mount, bass drum spurs and floor tom legs to prevent direct contact between wood and metal.
The combination of these two sound aiding hardware designs works to ensure this Sonor ProLite shell pack offers the optimum in tonal freedom and resonant sustain.
Offering quick and easy setup, the bass drum spurs of the Sonor ProLite kick drum have been refined over time to deliver reliability and style.
The spurs feature memory locks to enable you to consistently and repeatedly achieve your preferred settings.
The feet of the bass drum spurs also feature integrated spikes to provide extra secure hold for your kick drum placement.
Simply twist the rubber foot to reveal the spike. Then once the spike is at your desired position fasten the screw to lock it in place.
Hoops and Heads
The Sonor ProLite kit comes fitted with Made by Remo USA heads as standard to deliver superb durability and superior sound straight out of the box.
The toms feature Sonor Clear Medium heads while the bass drum has a Sonor Clear Power batter head and a Sonor Power White reso head with Black Sonor Logo.
The drumheads are held firmly in place by the 2mm Sonor Power Hoops to provide clean tuning and crisp attack.
Each of the drums in this 3-piece Sonor ProLite shell pack feature Sonor’s TuneSafe technology designed to ensure easier and longer lasting tuning.
Each of the Sonor lugs are equipped with this patented TuneSafe design which works to prevent the tension rods from loosening as you play.
Each tension rod has a square head with fine-pitch threads to guarantee optimum tunability.
The combination of the tension rods and the TuneSafe system results in a drum kit that provides maximum tuning stability.
Combining impressive attention to detail with stunningly sophisticated style, the Sonor ProLite is the epitome of high-end, professional percussion.
The precisely crafted Vintage Maple shells with reinforcement rings deliver beautifully rich warm tone with wonderfully controlled sustain.
The sound aiding hardware design ensures optimum tone, unimpeded resonance and reliable tuning, while the striking Elder Tree finish provides a unique aesthetic that exudes stylish sophistication.
