November/December 09 Updates

Welcome to our November/December Artist Update – everything you need to know about the worldwide SONOR artist family!

CHRISTOPH SCHNEIDER and RAMMSTEIN are touring Europe with an energetic and explosive tour (everybody that attended a show previously knows what I’m talking about!) – check out the tourdates on
As posted earlier, Christoph got a brandnew SQ2 series kit consisting of 2x 24x19” Bass Drums, 14x13” Tom Tom, 20x15” Gong Tom, 16x15” Floor Tom, 18x17” Floor Tom – all made out of Medium Maple shells, as well as a 12x5” Snare Drum with Heavy Birch shell. His kit is entirely wrapped with our new “Red Tribal” finish that we introduced this year. The main snare drum that he uses live is our 14x6” Artist Series Bell Bronze model.
For the recording of the new album “Liebe ist für alle da” Christoph used Delite Drums (Vintage Maple Shells).
Check out the Making of Videos of “Pussy”, the first single outtake – and notice what his band mates have to say about Christoph’s drumming AND his new drums!!
