The first thing you will probably notice about this Sonor AQ1 Ltd Edition 22'' 5 Piece Stage Drum Kit is its blazing high gloss lacquer Lite Yellow finish that promises to set the stage alight. But as beautiful as it is, there's a lot more to this limited edition short run kit then it's amazing aesthetic. Behind the good-looks, you’ll find everything a player needs in a kit and more besides. This is a great intermediate kit that comes with some amazing features and with the inclusion of Sonor’s brilliant 2000 series hardware pack, is ready to play. Quality build, fantastic sound, sensational value.
The shells of this AQ1 are constructed of 6 layers of 100% Birch wood with a final thickness of 7.2mm, which results in a highly resonant, high volume sound with an energetic attack. This great sound is then enhanced by the addition of Remo UT Pinstripe drum heads which bring out sweet full-bodied lows, and Sonor’s Smart Mount System.
The AQ1 rack toms are suspended using the Smart Mount System; an innovative, simple yet highly effective low-contact mounting system allows your shells the freedom to resonate freely and open up to their maximum potential. The mount supported by a suspension rail that is limited to a mere two points of contact - cleverly situated between the shell and its lugs and buffered by hard rubber washers that encourage more resonance and aid in balancing sustain.
This scorcher of a kit also features chrome snare/tom hoops and hardware, a matching set-colour bass drum hoop, and an attractive AQ1 nameplate. Two of the great things about this kit is the matching 14 x 6” Snare drum and the inclusion of a 5-piece hardware set - meaning that you’ll be set up and playing in no time at all.
The Sonor HS 2000 Hardware Set is a sturdy entry-level collection of double-braced drum hardware - 5 pieces of lightweight, robust chrome designed to stand up to extensive playing. It consists of 2 x boom cymbal stands, 1 x snare stands, 1 x hi-hat stand and single pedal - all strong and reliable, and perfect for gigging or home use.
The Sonor AQ1 Ltd Edition 22'' 5 Piece Stage Drum Kit is a cracking kit that fuses high quality components with clever, frugal design that amounts to an amazing price. And don’t forget - this particular finish is a limited edition on a really short run-out, so won’t be around for very long at all. Grab it while you can - it will be the sunshine of your life.
