With its beech shells, rounded bearing edges, Superprofil hoops and teardrop lugs, Sonor's Vintage Series recalls a fondly- remembered defining period in the German company's year evolution. As the drum world forges ahead with new innovations there is a definite parallel movement towards resurrecting some of the better aspects of vintage styles. Gretsch and Ludwig have done it and now it is Sonor's turn. In the UK of the s, Trixon was more visible, but Sonor was already quietly making top quality 'teardrop' lug kits. So elongated were these lugs that they had to be offset on the shallower snares and toms, creating a chic image which Sonor has recreated in its new Vintage Series. The aim is to recapture the vibe of that period from the s when Sonor modernised, up till the mids when the more familiar, heavy-duty Sonor kicked in.
