Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Aaron Spears has joined the Sonor artist ros­ter.

Spears, who pre­vi­ously had a long work­ing re­la­tion­ship with Drum Work­shop, re­veals that it was the com­pany’s flag­ship SQ2 line that con­vinced him to make the switch.

He ex­plains: “When I re­play in my mind the ex­act mo­ment when I sat be­hind an SQ2 kit for the first time, all I can do is smile... It was at that pre­cise mo­ment I re­alised that I had just found some­thing ex­tremely spe­cial.

“If I close my eyes I swear I can hear and feel ex­actly what I felt in that show­room. With­out a doubt I knew that I was play­ing some of the most amaz­ing drums on the planet. I was to­tally im­pressed with the warmth of the tones, the bal­ance of the at­tack, and how quickly and ef­fort­lessly they tuned up. I just kept shak­ing my head be­cause I couldn’t be­lieve what I was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing.”

Spears, whose cred­its in­clude pop roy­alty such as Usher and Ari­ana Grande, de­scribed his first ex­pe­ri­ence with an SQ2 kit as un­real.’‘

My en­tire life, drums have al­ways been ex­tremely fun for me and I’m thank­ful for that,” he adds. “Play­ing the SQ2 kit takes that fun to higher lev­els for me that I hon­estly didn’t know was pos­si­ble. It’s truly an hon­our for me to be a part of the leg­endary Sonor fam­ily.”

Well, he seems pretty pleased, doesn’t he? And Thomas Barth, Sonor’s In­ter­na­tional Artist Re­la­tions Man­ager, is feel­ing chuffed too.

He says: “Aaron play­ing our drums and be­ing a part of the Sonor fam­ily is huge for us and beyond ex­cit­ing. He’s not only an out­stand­ing and su­per-tal­ented drum­mer, but also such a hum­ble hu­man be­ing with a big heart, which makes him a per­fect fit for the artist fam­ily. We’re all very much look­ing for­ward to this and highly ap­pre­ci­ate his trust in the Sonor brand and the peo­ple be­hind it!”
