From its modern birch shells to its cutting-edge tom mounts, the SQ1 series is proof that Sonor is an unstoppable force in the drum world. These exquisite German drums pack a ferocious tone and sport designer good looks inspired by hot rods of the mid-20th century. Shells are built from select plies of European birch for great tonal balance and a crisp, modern attack. Hardware innovations include visually clean, acoustically neutral Sound Sustainer tom/floor brackets and Sonor's renowned TuneSafe lugs, which keep tuning stable between takes. Whether you live on the road or in the studio, Sweetwater's Sonor SQ1 shell packs are guaranteed to bring out the best in your performances. Just ask Chris Coleman and Nir Z â€” two artists who have already made the switch to SQ1.
