Mt Juliet TN April 15, 2024…The New Teak Semi-Gloss veneer finish brings simple elegance to the popular Vintage series. With classic styling that feels like something familiar for decades, this brand-new look was hand-selected to fit the retro cool of these iconic drums. Combining coarsely grained texture along with a warm, medium-toned heartwood look, this offering harkens back to the late 1960’s and Early 1970’s. The new teak veneer is applied to German Beech shells appointed with SONOR teardrop lugs and superprofile hoops, producing the timeless analog sound in a digital world that Vintage Series has become known for. “These drums are immortal,” remarks SONOR brand Manager Jeff Mulvihill. “It’s truly a look and sound that never goes out of style.”

Made in Germany, SONOR Vintage Series drums produce the full and articulate sound characteristics that SONOR is known for. The nine ply 6mm beech shells exude full, warm tone with evenly balanced lows, mids, and highs that project like no other instrument. Hand-crafted using the SONOR proprietary Cross-Laminated Tension Free (CLTF) process and Optimum Shell Measurements (OSM), the slightly undersized diameters allow for perfect contact between the shell and the drumhead in all tunings. With great sound a prerequisite, standard TuneSafe lugs and Remo USA drumheads ensure tuning stability, while the Semi-Gloss Teak supplies the look that’s chic.
