Product Description


When playing a metal shell snare drum, in a live or studio situation, sometimes a more powerful presence and maximum intensity of sound is desired. Canopus SO3M, with its 3mm brass shell, meets this challenge with outstanding results. We observed that a thicker metal shell did not automatically meet these demands – they often did not give back a sonic result to match the energy and passion with which the drummer was playing.

The SO3M has met and surpassed these demands with spectacular results! It has a wide range -with unlimited power and intensity. Most importantly, it has a full, rich tone. It delivers everything that the player wants from it in terms of power, tone and volume. The 3mm seamless brass shell allows it to provide unprecedented sound at extreme volumes. As well, Canopus has developed a unique, original edge shape for the SO3 which provides extreme responsiveness and a range of expression guaranteed to satisfy all players.

3mm Solid Brass Snare Drum Hoop

Canopus die-cast hoops produce a clearly defined tone . They respond to every stroke with full-bodied projection . We have focused on hoop shape and thickness, and used the unique properties of zinc material in order to provide a natural “crack” sound.

A nylon nut is built in the strainer switch CSA-20S.
Canopus’ switch is so designed to prevent “loosening of snare wire” during the performance by creating moderate friction on the tension adjustment dial by the torque controlled nylon nut.
