""As German engineers we are fascinated by German engineering. After seeing that stylish German sports car we had to build a drum kit with this special colour"" says Product Manager Frank Boestfleisch. ""An SQ² player ordered that color once so we knew it would look pretty cool. We asked our Facebook fans just regarding the bass drum hoop and the response was overwhelming.""
SONOR ProLite Sound
The core of the ProLite series is the sound spectrum provided by the extremely thin Vintage Maple shells with reinforcement ring. These provide an unmistakably open sound and an enormously wide tuning range for practically all styles of music. SONOR’s Vintage Maple shell is characterized by a soft, warm tone that highlights the lower pitches and provides balance in the mid-range and treble, without sacrificing projection and power.
SONOR ProLite Shell Design
Cross Laminated Tension Free Process (CLTF) - SONOR cross-laminates shells for superior stability, sonically enhanced resonance and spectacular tone. The CLTF process is a result of years of research by SONOR craftsmen.
Optimum Shell Measurement (OSM) - SONOR implements a slightly narrow outside shell measurement for optimized head contact. This is a SONOR specialty, resulting in excellent tone, better sustain and controlled decay.
