Snare Series 1960-1970

On this page you’ll find Sonor drums produced in the 1960’s. Not all drums can be dated exactly, but a type of badge, finish, hardware etc. can put a drum in a certain timeframe. Since some drums were produced for several years, sometimes with an “era-overlap”, I’ll place them where I think they’ll fit best.
