140 years of German engineering

Only when sound is becoming a real experience, the SONOR quality standard is met. From precision craftsmanship musical expression is shaped.

Sonor drums

For decades SONOR has supported the constant improvement of percussion instruments on a scientific level. The close cooperation with research institutes, renowned musicologists and leading artists builds the basis for these efforts. Several groundbreaking developments were made possible by these mutual activities.

SONOR drums and hardware receive top results almost regularly from test reports in leading drum and percussion magazines. As a first in musical instruments, SONOR received the highest design award of Germany in 1994. But always one key element remains through all certificates and achievements: The dedication of SONOR to offer sound the best possible basis.
