Sonor gave their Artist Series "Earth" model an overhaul in 2016.
The core of the snare drum, a 27 ply (26 mm) Beech shell, delivers a deep, yet dry sound that's well suited for Funk, Fusion and any kind of EDM. Being introduced over 10 years ago, it received a major overhaul in design and now features the high gloss "Tineo" veneer, along with chrome hardware.
