Since 2004, drumming scenes shooting star Benny Greb is 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. Thats 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, Bennys very own Signature model that is as versatile and musical as Benny himself. Benny favors Beech, and thats 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 wouldnt be Benny without adding something very special. The personalized Benny Greb badge shows his unique Cartoon-head, and a soft rubber ring is being applied to the shell.
IN ALL OF MY RECENT RECORDINGS YOU CAN HEAR THE HUGE SOUND AND VERSATILITY OF THIS GREAT INSTRUMENT. IM HAPPY TO SHARE THIS SOUND NOW WITH YOU. HAVE FUN WITH IT! - Benny Greb
