NV60-M5 Snare Drum Sound Chart



Power & Tone

The sound that was loved back in the 60’s by drummers in many genres, such as Jazz, Rock and R&B, has come back to life!We managed to produce a thick and warm sound by applying Canopus’ original edge shaping method to European Maple shells. Additionally, the classic combination of uniquely shaped reinforcement rings, flat gray interior coating, and inner muffler has been reproduced. The sound of power and tone from that era is back!

Clarence Penn
“Finally a drum that you can tune high but keeps all of the body, warmth and clarity I look for….with other drums you hear only ”crack” where as this one you hear “body and crack” my new favorite snare!”Clarence Penn
