Overview

The Sonor team, in cooperation with artists and collectors, worked tirelessly to bring the new Vintage drum line as close as possible to the look, feel and sound of its predecessor, the Teardrop drums. Sonor then combined its knowledge of modern drum building, with the look and sound of vintage drums, to create an instrument that will hold up to today's modern playing.

Like in the original Teardrop drums, the Vintage drum series feature hand-selected premium German Beech shells with rounded bearing edges. Sonor has carefully recreated the look and feel of the 1950s teardrop lug and updated it with Sonor's exclusive Tunesafe™ system. Being sure not to overlook any details, Sonor has redesigned the Superprofil triple flanged hoops and brought back the timeless Sonor badge and logo used in between 1952 and 1961.

Sonor Vintage Series Sound
The rounded bearing edge creates more head contact, which generates a beefier and little shorter sound in comparison to the 45-degree cut shells. The result is a warm, dry, but yet resonant sound that you'll notice on older drum records.

Sonor Vintage Series Shell Design
The Vintage Series is constructed with a 9-ply, 6 mm cross laminated tension free (CLTF) shell on all drums.

Super50 Snare Strainer
Vintage snare drums feature a new throw off. The 'Super 50', a completely redesigned strainer, was inspired by the throw off which was used on the Sonor D-411 and D-412 snares in the 1950s.

Superprofil Hoops—Redesigned
Sonor has redesigned the original "Superprofil" hoop from the 1950s - a 2.3 mm triple flanged steel hoop with classic shape on snare drum, tom toms and floor toms.

TuneSafe—Right in Tune, 100% of the Time
All Sonor lugs are equipped with the patented TuneSafe, which prevents the tension rods from loosening. Tune Safe supports maximum tuning stability even under extreme environments. Square-head tension rods with fine-pitch threads guarantee optimum tunability.
