SONOR – an Industry leader in the finest Drums and Percussion Instruments, used and loved by Artists such as Jojo Mayer, Bradlee Dean and others is a testament to their innovation and dependability. Now SONOR has created another kit that will excite and thrill drummers and percussionists worldwide.
Following in the footsteps of the extremely successful Safari and Bop drum kits, Sonor announces the launch of the Martini, a new take on the “cocktail kit.” Small in size but mighty in attitude, this little powerhouse will be offered in a gorgeous, retro Emerald Isle turquoise sparkle and include natural-grain “one-of-a kind” finish bass drum hoops.
Martini’s compact poplar shells (bass drum 14” x 12,” rack tom 8”x 8,” floor tom 13” x 10” and a 12” x 5” steel snare) produce bright tone with powerful, full projection and a single tom holder is included to mount the rack tom. Top-quality Sonor fittings and tuning lugs, featuring the TuneSafe system guarantee consistent performance making these drums reliable for pros and hobbyists alike. Martini’s shells are cross-laminated for strength and dependability and top-quality Remo heads are included.
“Today’s working drummers require great sounding kits that are quick to set up, that don’t require tons of space on-stage and that are easy to transport,” said Product Manager Larry Nelson. “We believe Martini combines portability with great sound at an affordable price and we’re very excited to bring it to market.”
Xombiewoof Magazine’s Music Reviewer and Staff Drummer / Percussionist Joseph Timmons took a look at the Martini’s Specs and had this to add: “I loved playing on the Bop kit when it was brought in for Xombiewoof to review; its sound was full and with varied tuning was able to let me play anything I wanted to in any style. Whether it was Jazz, Rock or Metal rhythms, the Bop was magnificent, I am sure the Martini will be the same. I highly recommend you check this kit out. I would also recommend you consider pairing this with the Perfect Balance Bass Drum Pedal, designed by renowned drummer Jojo Mayer and produced by SONOR, it has the flexibility and speed I have yet to see in other pedals, once I used it I have never gone back to my old pedal, it’s reflexive speed is unrivaled. I will definitely add the Martini to my collection of SONOR Drums”
