Since 2004, the drumming scene’s shooting star Benny Greb has been part of the SONOR family. Says Benny: “For me as an artist it is key to embrace both tradition and innovation, and the guys at the Sonor drum company do that same thing. I feel close to people that love what they do and who are dedicated to quality. That’s why I feel close to the Sonor Company.”
Early 2010, SONOR and Benny began working on a very special Snare Drum, Benny’s very own Signature model that is as versatile and musical as Benny himself.
Benny favors Beech, and that’s what gives the drum its transparency, warmth and a wide tuning range with a fat sound. The special shell size – 13” in diameter and 5.75” in depth is the outcome of experimenting with the primary snare drum he has used over the years, a 13x6.5”, with alternative depths of 5” and 5.5”. The beautiful outer veneer is Scandinavian Birch that adds a timeless look to the drum. But it wouldn’t be Benny without adding something very special. The personalized Benny Greb badge shows his unique “Cartoon-head”, and a soft rubber ring is being applied to the shell.
