Armando Luongo Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

Armando Luongo

I heard the first time the canopus drum kit in 2011 when I went for the first time in NY. At that time I was looking for a vintage bop kit but finilly I realized that the canopus NV60 M1 sounded exactly the way I was looking for. This drum kit can "sing"!!!

The Neo Vintage series is amazing, I have been looking for this kind of sound since I was playing music as a kid in France. The touch and the feel is incredible and the drums sing when you play them. I have been even more inspired to play the music I love on this wonderful instrument!

These Drums are just amazing. The tuning range is ridiculous. The Bass Drum has so much attack… The Toms sing! The Snare Drum is my favorite from all my Snare Drum collection. The Neo Vintage NV60-M1 series are the most versatile drums from all the Canopus lines. You can play ANY style with these...

These drums have a great tonal quality. They are easy and perfect to tune and have a warm, rich and punctuate sound. I can use them in a lot of different musical situations and they project very well. Very inspiring instruments!

The Canopus NV60-M1 drums are quickly becoming a legendary, much sought-after drum kit, as more great players discover the beauty, depth and versatility of their sound. There is a reason that world-class jazz artists such as Clarence Penn, Kenny Washingon, Brian Blade, Harvey Mason, Adam Cruz,...

There is a certain sound I have always had in my head and I finally found the drum that can produce it. I have 7 other drum sets but the Canopus NV60-M1 is the only one I play anymore. Superb sound and craftsmanship

Robert Delich Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

Robert Delich

In all my years of playing, I've played just about every drum brand name imaginable. Undoubtedly, Canopus Drums are exactly the sound I've been looking for. Above and beyond their great design, Canopus quality engineering and craftsmanship has developed and produced a clear, clean, and projecting...

I have the great fortune to now play a set of Canopus NV-M1 drums. This is a wonderful musical instrument. As a lifetime (40+ years) of owning Gretsch, and having studied with Mel Lewis , we know what they used. Had Canopus been on the scene back then I have no doubt that it would have been...

Eliot Zigmund Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

Eliot Zigmund

There is a comparison to the old Gretsch, but like comparing a 1958 Maserati to a 2012 Maserati. The nice rounded, clear, but flat, not much ring, die cast sound is there, but the Canopus drums are just so much easier to play and the sound projects so well. Also, they sound and feel consistent in...

It's easy to play, easy to tune, and it really helps me express myself at my highest musical level. I look forward to playing them for many years to come.

Cedrick Bec

Canopus is the only manufacturer that is concerned with the deep and soulfull vintage jazz sound. In the neo-vintage kit, i found all what i loved in my vintage jazz kit, without the disadvantage of the old capricious hardware. They succeed to make those legendary drums' voices alive thanks to...

The new Canopus set (Neo-Vintage series NV60-M1) is really a dream come true. It's the sound every drummer has inside his or her mind. but that's so hard to finde. I am sure that it will make drummers around the world feel like crying for joy!

Andrew Dickson Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

Andrew Dickson

All I can say is that they are amazing! They are definitely the best sounding drums I have ever played. I never thought I would play a better kit than my 50s Gretsch - I was wrong. They are so easy to tune - very sensitive.
