Sonor Ascent Review

The Ascent series’ design team worked closely with top Sonor Artists to create this perfect sound instrument. Every aspect of the set is designed to deliver high-end results.

Coming from a German manufacturer, you can never expect anything less. Sometimes I think they over-engineer their products. But that is just what makes them unique.


The drums feature a 9-ply configuration for the tom-toms, floor toms, and the snare, measuring 8.75mm. The bass drum is 7-ply and measures 6.35mm, which makes it sound loud and clears.

Every drum comes with a 45-degree bearing edge and a new light-weight tension lugs with TuneSafe functionality. TAR (Total Acoustic Resonance) tom mount system makes tuning the toms fast and easy.

Also, the comes in 9 incredible wood veneers, sparkle, and solid faced and Burst finishes. With these is are black chrome shell hardware with certain finishes. Each drum matches the rest of the kit with perfection.

Besides, this series is equipped with REMO USA drumheads and rubber padded bass drum claws. These are some of the features that set it apart from other manufacturers.


Ascent Series drum kit is configured with a 22-inch bass drum, 10 and 12-inch toms, 16-inch floor toms, and a 14-inch snare could be all you need to get your drumming skills to the next level. They come with the latest technologies, making them a good option for the modern drummer.
