OVERVIEW

A snare drum designed in partnership with the rock-steady backbeat of AC/DC.

With a 30-year relationship, Sonor and Phil Rudd teamed up to create another unique Signature Snare Drum Model. Phil's history with AC/DC is as long as his history with Sonor Drums, starting in the early 1970's. The 5-piece Rock and Roll combo is without a doubt one of the most important, influential and successful rock bands of all time. More than three decades into a career that shows no signs of slowing down or letting up, AC/DC, like electricity itself, provides the world with an essential source of power and energy.

Since forming in 1973, AC/DC's high voltage rock 'n' roll has flowed out into the world via consistently sold-out concert tours and global sales totalling more than 200 million albums and counting. Phil, a born Australian is no less one of the most important persons in the drum world, having influenced thousands of drummers all over the globe. His playing style is truly unique and a trademark of its own and the AC/DC sound.

In 2009, Sonor and Phil started to work on a new Signature Model that is all about Phil's sound, and at the same time celebrating the 30+ years of relationship. The Snare Drum is based on Phil's all-time favourite Snare Drum, the Sonor Horst Link Signature Brass model, while adding exciting new features and face. The final prototype Snare Drum was presented to Phil in early 2009 during the "Black Ice" World Tour and used from thereon.

The Snare Drum is made out of a 1mm Chrome-over-Brass Shell and comes with the latest Double-Lugs that include the internal TuneSafe feature. A very important feature for Phil, stating "Huge concert tours like the Black Ice tour require fully functional gear, and the TuneSafe feature has been a stable one when it comes to the ability of keeping the drums in tune". Die Cast Hoops add a nice crack, while the sound overall is to be described best as focused, dry and cutting.

All hardware comes in Chrome. With a diameter of 14" and a depth of 5", it is truly homage to the Horst Link Signature Model Drum that has been with Phil during the past years on worldwide tours and in Studio. Besides the Signature Badge, Phil's Signature is engraved on a Re-Issue of the Signature Badge, adding a "Vintage" touch.
