Sonor AS 12 1307 AM Artist Snare

Snare Drum

The newest addition to the Artist Snare Program is the exclusive 13" x 7" Amboyna snare. This snare drum consists of a thick maple drum shell (Heavy Maple) that reflects the perfection offered in a Sonor drum construction in its entirety.

The sound spectrum ranges from sensitive to brutal and is especially distinguished by a soft warm tone with stressed lower frequencies and balanced mids as well as highs. A great all-rounder! With one of the finest and highest quality wood surfaces - the Amboyna veneer and the gold-plated fittings of this snare drum make it a real beauty.

A great tool!

Rainer, 25.08.2013
This drum immediately triggers a "want". I rarely have such a beautiful and perfectly worked instrument in my hands. It is almost too bad to play.

The mechanics are outstanding, here Sonor shows where the hammer hangs. The snare can be tuned very well and retains its sound characteristics over a wide pitch range. She loses her belly with a resonant skin and a high beat rhythm, then exhorts her owner to downtun.

Optimal it sounds to my taste with medium mood. This is where the low frequencies that characterize a 7 "deep maple kettle are the best, and surpasses all the snares that I have been able to play in this sound, so anyone who is looking for this sound will be lucky.

It has a good volume and sounds slightly more present than a 14s snare of the same type. Or the other way around: you need less skin tension and can make the snare less powerful, warmer and ultimately even a little quieter. Where quiet is relatively, if one is not straight with a 7a and guchzartem Stroke is blessed.

If I had not already a great working main snare, then I would use them as such. But I am looking for a Sidesnare with higher mood, which does not sound so bright. She can do that too, but then she loses her character and sounds interchangeable. I can not do this either to her or to myself.

In view of the price, we will separate again, and my search continues.

My dreams

sinuswave, 24.11.2013
Apart from the fact that it looks good:

This snare is high quality. There is nothing to complain about in the processing. SONOR shows in this drum, how decades of experience in drum construction, in a top instrument. The sound is "stunning" in the "true" mood in the truest sense of the word.

My Rating: Absolute Refernzklasse!
... and a real collector's item ...

Why SONOR does not offer this jewel with a suitable hardcase is worth asking. That should actually be with such a model standard.
