Sonor SQ1 Shell Pack With Matching Snare Drum – Drummer’s Review

Here’s our review of a Sonor Drums SQ1 Series shell pack with matching snare drum, featuring…

  • 100% birch shells,
  • 22″ x 17.5″ bass drum,
  • 10″ x 7″ rack tom,
  • 12″ x 8″ rack tom,
  • 16″ x 15″ floor tom,
  • 14″ x 6.5″ snare drum,
  • USA-Made, Sonor branded Remo heads fitted throughout.

Sonor says…“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. When developing SQ1, Sonor tested several combinations of Birch-based shell materials. Sonor’s conclusion was that pure Birch provided the most versatile sounding drum. 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.”
