Sonor is well-known for its ultra-high end SQ2 system custom drums, and its off-the-peg Delite and S-Classix kits feature in many a player's 'lottery win' list. In recent years, however, Sonor's mid-range Force offerings have demonstrated that you don't have to be a Euromillionaire to play a Sonor. In fact, with the Force 2007 Rock kit, Sonor has torn up the rule book and re-defined ‘mid-range’. Excellence for under a grand.
