Celebrating the 140th anniversary of the company, Sonor brings back an iconic look and sound of the time between the 1950s and early 1970s. The Sonor team, in cooperation with artists and collectors, worked to bring the Vintage series drums as close as possible to the look, feel, and sound of its predecessor, the Teardrop drums.
Like the original Teardrop drums, the Vintage series drums feature hand-selected premium German beech shells with rounded bearing edges. Sonor has recreated the look of the 1950s teardrop lug and updated it with its exclusive Tunesafe tuning system. Sonor also redesigned the Superprofil triple flanged hoops and brought back the Sonor logo and badge used between 1952 and 1961.
“Sonor has really captured the look and feel of the original Teardrop drums,” said product manager Gary Ingraffia. “With three very classic finishes and traditional sizes, the Vintage series is a unique offering in the drum market.”
The drums are available in two 3”piece preconfigured shell sets, a 20×14 bass drum, 12×8 tom, and 14×12 floor tom and a 22×14 bass drum, 13×8 tom, and 16×14 floor tom. The Vintage series comes in three finishes, Vintage Natural, Vintage Onyx, and Vintage Pearl and a selection of add-on drums and snare drums will be available.
