Sonor introduces the SQ1 series, a new dimension in sound. Birch shells in combination with new innovative Sound Sustainer technology form the basis of a drum series with extraordinary sound characteristics. Together with exclusive matte lacquer finishes, a professional drum concept for live performance and studio recording was developed.

Birch - the secret behind acoustic versatility

SQ1 drum shells are made of 100% European Birch. Because of its sound characteristics - balanced in low, mid and high - the Birch drum sound is very popular for studio recordings as well as live performances. Sonor's unique CLTF "Cross Lamination Tension Free" and OSM "Optimum Shell Measurement" process (slightly narrowed outside shell measurement) provide excellent sustain and easy tuning.

Sound Sustainer - the intelligent drum mount

For decades Sonor has cooperated with scientific institutes to optimize the acoustic performance of their drums. The new Sound Sustainer technology is based on concepts applied in the automotive industry. A 2-component connection (rubber to metal) enables complete isolation of the metal mount and the wooden shell. This guarantees a particularly long lasting and clean decaying sustain, not just for tom toms but also all floor toms in the SQ1 series.

Look & Feel inspired by classic cars

The colours and styles of legendary car classics were the inspiration for the colour selection of the SQ1 series. Four matte lacquer surfaces are handcrafted with Sonor's precision sanding, polishing and lacquer procedures. A special lacquer is used to seal all inside shells.

The SQ1 snares are of super quality. It's a shame they somehow don't get the same respect as the One of a Kids, the signatures or SQ2s. It's thoughtfully made, loud and very sensitive.
