Already in the 60's SONOR Teardrop kits were build to the highest quality standards and were highly rated by international stars like Connie Kay, Roy Haynes, Sonny Payne or Kenny 'Klook' Clarke.
SONOR Teardrop kits are one of the most sought after vintage drums. Utilizing rounded bearing edges, the new VINTAGE series drums represent the return of the 'old SONOR sound' into its product line. SONOR introduced the 45 degree bearing edge in 1975, which we still use today on all SQ2, Prolite, and Force series drums. With the addition of the Vintage Series, drummers will have access to a complete palette of sounds that is uniquely SONOR.
The SONOR team, in cooperation with artists and collectors, worked tirelessly to bring the new Vintage drum line as close as possible to the look, feel and sound of its predecessor the Teardrop drums. SONOR then combined its knowledge of modern drum building, with the look and sound of vintage drums, to create an instrument that will hold up to today's modern playing.
Like in the original Teardrop drums, the VINTAGE drum series feature hand-selected premium German Beech shells with rounded bearing edges. We have carefully recreated the look and feel of the 1950's teardrop lug and updated it with SONOR's exclusive Tunesafe system. Being sure not to overlook any details, SONOR has redesigned the Superprofil triple flanged hoops and brought back the timeless SONOR badge and logo used in between 1952 and 1961.
Vintage bass drums and shell sets are now available with the re-issue of the classic "iron"-shape bracket, which fits all SONOR single and double tom holder.
