The Sonorlite Shell The Sonorlite drum shell is unique in several respects. It is made from Scaninavian Birch, which is also used in the production of aircraft. Its ratio of strength to weight is particularly favorable to percussion, so that a Sonorlite shell can be nearly 50% lighter than comparable shells. Snare drums and bass drums are 12-ply and measure 7mms, while tom tom and floor tom shells are 9-ply and measure 6mms. SONORLITE Sonorlite drums have been developed in response to drummers who are not only seeking an instrument with high quality sound, but also require a light, rigid shell design. In the construction of Sonorlite we have strived to meet the most demanding sound requirements. The same high manufacturing standards that we use in our full Sonor product range have naturally been applied to Sonorlite. Nothing has been compromised, We have given painstaking attention to even the smallest detail. The Sonorlite Sound Sonorlite drums produce a warm, rich and modern sound. The balanced sound volume is achieved by special shell sizes. Every Sonorlite shell is veneered inside with selected plies of high-quality Scandinavian Birch, giving them the final touch to the sound. The Sonorlite Finish Sonorlite drums are available in the following finishes:
Scandinavian Birch MB
