The next step – classic sound evolved
While many steel snare drums may have a somewhat uncontrollable sound, the Canopus S-1450 gives steel a new character. By finishing the drum with nickel plating, and using solid brass tube this drum has a balanced and mellow sound – whilst still retaining the desired brightness of steel. This drum has a presence that will never be overshadowed by the mid-range tones of string and keyboard instruments.
Unlike many steel drums, the distinct sharp sound of our steel drum gives no impression of cheapness and coldness.
