SONOR Drums is releasing two new signature snare drums in collaboration with world-renowned German drummer Benny Greb. The existing 13 x 5.75″ beech snare, with an outer veneer of Scandinavian birch, now comes with a bubinga wood inlay and classy vintage teardrop lugs alongside a new dampening mechanism called the “MonoRail”, of which every drum has two. These feature Benny’s favorite dampening materials, called “The Felt”, and “The Sheep”, for maximum flexibility.
As well as this is the all-new Benny Greb Signature Brass model. It features a vintage brass finish and teardrop lugs on a 1.2mm brass shell. It has the warmth and roundness typical for this material, which SONOR says gives: “Pleasant overtones that accentuate edge rim shots.”
SONOR go on to say: “Benny Greb is one of the most versatile and busiest members of the SONOR family – be it in a band setting or with his various solo projects. His signature style on the kit, his deep technical knowledge and his winning personality always impress. No wonder that Benny´s clinics and drum camps, which he holds all over the world, are always fully booked. That’s why SONOR is proud to release a second signature snare drum series in close cooperation with this outstanding artist.”
