Sonor SQ1 6.5" x 14" Snare
Birch - the secret behind acoustic versatility
This drum is 6.5" (depth) x 14" (diameter), finished in Satin Gold Metallic.
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.
