S-Classix Drums have been discontinued since December 2013
The Sonor S Classix Scandinavian Birchwood Series is designed for advanced and professional drummers alike, and for admirers of the classic Sonor look of the 1960's and 70's.
Combined with state-of-the-art features and timeless retro finishes, the S Classix set is becoming the centerpiece of Sonor's drum series. With an extensive range of individual components to choose from, the S-Classix Series offers everything you could want in a genuine Sonor drum!
The Sonor S-Classix series features thin, full birch shells made of Scandinavian birchwood. These drums provide maximum strength and perfect, neutral tuning thanks to tension-free cross lamination of the individual layers of wood (CLTF Cross Lamination Free Process).
With thin birch shells, this series offers a convincingly pithy and compulsive sound with powerful treble, mid-range pitches, and well-balanced deep tones. Finishes are available in high-quality wood veneers or attractive retro finishes.
Sonor S Classix Shell Thickness
9 layers fir toms, floor toms and snare drums = 5 mm
9 layers for bass drums = 6 mm (medium shell)
Power Hoops - Clean Tuning and Crisp Attack!
2.3 mm Sonor Power Hoops on all snare drums. 14" snare drums with chrome-plated die-cast hoop rims are available as an option.
TuneSafe - Right in Tune 100% of the Time!
All Sonor lugs are equipped with the TuneSafe, which prevents tension rods from loosening even under the hardest hard rim shots or loosely tuned heads. The new square tension screws with fine-pitch threads guarantee optimum tunability.
