Ahhhh, EvilD. You sly dog! ;)

Excellent post, my friend. Really thoughtful. I wonder what XLN has in store for us?

it's like you guys did EXACTLY what I asked for, Sonor snares!!! Keep them coming, they have lots!

BUT..... you state that "The first drum ever produced by Sonor was a marching snare drum dated to 1942 ". Really??? Cause my 1975 Rosewood Phonics drums are their 100th anniversary series. AND check this out http://www.sonormuseum.com/genesis/genesis.html

I would also LOVE to see a Signature Bubinga set of Sonors from the 80s in my setup....PLEASE!

You seem to be absolutely right. I wonder what our date is from, could be the first snare manufactured in a specific factory or in a specific style.

I've asked Jakob to take a look at it. I'll make sure we correct the info. Cheers for the history lesson! :)

That's the right step forward ! Purchased the Sonor today and couldn't be happier. My kinda Snare !

Future Kitpieces I'd love to see could definitely be RotoToms, muffled Snares a la NI's 'tea towel' option and let's not forget toms without the reso skins for that late 70s sound.

The Sonor snare kit piece rocks!

But I was wondering if it really was made in the USA as stated on the XLN web site.

It is the first time I ever heard of US made Sonor snares.

Has somebody some additional information?

Cheers

The first Sonor Designer Snare might have been made somewhere else, but the one we sampled was made in the U.S.

"This specimen was made in the US during the mid 90s in Sonors world class drum shop"

snare sounds great, i want just to point out, that 10$ does not equal 10 euro :p its not fair kinda, cause in my country 10$ is about 27 zł, and 10 euro over 40zł :) so its almost 5 bucks more expensive. just not cool :p

nonetheless, i love your drums, keep makin' more ! i miss especially some sweet meinl cymbals :)

I'm glad you like it!

The price difference is there because we are forced to add Swedish VAT (25%) on sales within the EU, unless the buyer has a company with a valid VAT number.

I also got this new snare kitpiece about a week ago, and I love it!

I would love to see more stuff like this. But right now I am very much looking forward to the Metal AdPak!!!!

Thanks XLN, your software is awesome!
