Sonor Benny Greb Signature 13x5.75" Birch Snare Drum

 

Since 2004, drumming scene’s shooting star Benny Greb is part of the SONOR family. Says Benny: "For me as an artist it is key to embrace both tradition and innovation, and the guys at the SONOR Drum company do that same thing. I feel close to people that love what they do and who are dedicated to quality. That’s why I feel close to the SONOR Company."

Benny can be found playing with an assortment of musicians, all demanding his tasteful and immaculate playing style. You will find him in rock settings, laying down a ferocious backbeat with both Stoppok and The Ron Spielman Trio, in jazz with the aptly titled Benny Greb Brass Band.

Early 2010, SONOR and Benny begun working on a very special Snare Drum, Benny’s very own Signature model that is as versatile and musical as Benny himself. Benny favors Beech, and that’s what gives the Drum its transparency, warmth and a wide tuning range with a fat sound. The beautiful outer veneer is Scandinavian Birch that adds a timeless look to the Drum. But it wouldn’t be Benny without adding something very special. The personalized Benny Greb badge shows his unique "Cartoon-head", and a synthetic design ring is being applied to the shell.

"In all of my recent recordings you can hear the huge sound and versatility of this great instrument. I’m happy to share this sound now with you. Have fun with it!" Benny Greb

Manufacture
Sonor

Sonor is a German drum kit and percussion manufacturer. In the 1980s, Sonor's tagline was "The Rolls of drums". The drums were made very thick (13 mm) and heavy shells that were beech wood, with an innermost and outermost ply of furniture-grade veneers, such as rosewood and bubinga. Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden was one of the most prominent Sonor artists of the 1980s, along with Steve Smith of Journey, Phil Rudd of AC/DC, Thomas Haake of Meshuggah and jazz legend Jack DeJohnette. Sonor invented the modern screw thread drum-construction and the metal snare drum in the early 20th century. William F. Ludwig got this idea in his early years back in Germany from Sonor and began to use it later in Chicago. As the 1980s progressed, the market began to stray away from thick heavy shells and Sonor started slimming down its shells with a line called "Sonorlite" and "Hilite", a step away from the idea a drum shell should resonate like a violin or guitar body. The thinner the shell, the lower the fundamental tone.
