Message to CANOPUS
Canopus drums have a voice and unique sound ever found before. When I heard and tried (I remember in Milan during a concert of my colleague Adam Pache) for the first time a Canopus Drum I thought: " Wow ...I found my sound, this is my drums!" I never had a standard Kit because in terms of sound, I don’t have ever found the right balance. Canopus drums are fantastic, different; it is the perfect instrument with which I can continue my personal sound research.
