Benny Greb's Custom Snare Drum is a beautiful 5-3/4"x13" snare with a 5mm thin beech shell and a Scandinavian birch veneer semigloss finish.

Sonor introduces a great new artist signature snare drum, the Benny Greb Signature Snare Drum featuring a 5-3/4”x13” 5mm Thin Beech shell with a Scandinavian Birch veneer semigloss finish as well as other professional quality Sonor features. The Benny Greb Signature Snare Drum is an authentic reproduction of his first and favorite Sonor snare .

Since 2004, the drumming scene 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 is why I feel close to the Sonor Company.”

Benny can be found playing with an assortment of musicians, all demanding his tasteful and immaculate playing style. You will find him in rock settings, laying down a ferocious backbeat with both Stoppok and The Ron Spielman Trio, in jazz with the aptly titled Benny Greb Brass Band.

Early 2010, SONOR and Benny begun 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 is what gives the drum its transparency, warmth and a wide tuning range with a fat sound. 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 applied to the shell.

“IN ALL OF MY RECENT RECORDINGS YOU CAN HEAR THE HUGE SOUND AND VERSATILITY OF THIS GREAT INSTRUMENT. I AM HAPPY TO SHARE THIS SOUND NOW WITH YOU. HAVE FUN WITH IT!” - Benny Greb

Comments about Sonor Benny Greb Signature Snare Drum:

Straight out of the box, this drum blew me away. Pictures cannot do this instrument justice. Once you hold it yourself and see the attention to detail and beauty of this drum, a child like excitement will devour you. Before tuning, with even the lightest tap of the head, the drum speaks with the sensitivity of the steel wires.

This drum is anorexic to say the least.
But unless you play with extra heavy sticks and hit the drum with the force of a gorilla, choking will not be an issue. This drum can take a beating and CANNOT sound bad!

In lower tuninging, it is FAT, PUNCHY, and still retains its sensitivity.
In higher tunings, it is clear as a bell with a CRACK and POP, that I never realized would sound so good.

Playing this instrument is being able to play the perfect sounding snare drum in any application IMO

it is ultra resonant, but very easy to tune.
if you're wondering if the drum is worth the cost. it absolutely is. I love and use it more than my DW Edge, Joyful Noise TKO brass, or even my Brady Jarrah Block. And at an even better price.

Comments about Sonor Benny Greb Signature Snare Drum:

Found this snare while looking for the "perfect" snare, so my options were leading towards a Ludwig Black Beauty, although I appreciate the history of that snare, I listened to One Video of this Snare Benny Greb designed, and I knew this was the snare of my dreams!
Sure enough, This snare was in my hands, the look alone was enough for me to believe the power of this snare. After a few snare head configs, I found the sound that was meant for me.
Currently using: Evans HD dry/Hazy 300 with Puresound Twisted snare wires.
This snare can do it all! This snare is the end all of all other snares. Don't look back when you have this snare bc every other snare will seem like child's play.
BUY THIS SNARE!
