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.
