Marco Steffiano Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M2

Marco Steffiano

This kit is perfect for me. Its big and open. The kick has a lot of punch. and the toms sounded deep. I can feel the old school rock vibe,but it can fit for modern music.

Marco Steffiano Review on Mahogany Snare Drum

Marco Steffiano

Im using the 14x6,5 mahogany snare. I love it. Its sounded big, deep but has a lot of crack. I usually use a medium low tuning.

Dana Fitzsimons Review on NV60-M1 Snare Drum

Dana Fitzsimons

The heart of my kit is this 6.5x14 Neo Vintage NV60-M1 snare in mahogany satin. It delivers everything I love about classic Gretsch snares, but with its lighter solid brass hardware and unique design it has a very musical transparency coupled with tone for days. I’m using the plated vintage snare...

Dana Fitzsimons Review on R.F.M. Series

Dana Fitzsimons

The kit has arrived and I am knocked out. They open up with the lightest touch and it makes me want to play softer. They are super light in weight but deliver the best of the tone of the great vintage drums - but brought up to date. The attention to detail is amazing. Fit and finish are perfect;...

Matt Young Review on YAIBA II Drum Kit

Matt Young

The warmth and aesthetic of the Yaiba II Bop Kit are an aural and visual wonder! I'm in love with these drums for their dexterity and the attention to detail they were crafted with. They perform equally well in dead, low, medium, high, and cranked tunings! Plus the Yaiba Gray Sparkle... say no...

Shay Godwin Review on Vintage Snare Wire

Shay Godwin

I have been using Canopus snare wires exclusively for over a decade. Their evenness and crispresponse have no equal in the industry. Do not underestimate the importance of snare wires on the overall sound of your snare drums!

Steve Hirsh Review on R.F.M. Series

Steve Hirsh

My RFM drums are the warmest, most musical drums I've owned, in nearly 50 years of playing. I like to tune my drums high, and the RFM don't lose any of their tone, even at the highest tunings. And the 15" bass drum is about my favorite ever - incredible tone and articulation, and it's easy to haul...

Max Klots

Bolt Tight washers keep drums in tune and add that velvety tone to the sound.

Max Klots Review on Speed Master Bearing

Max Klots

When I first tried Canopus Speed Star ball bearing with my Yamaha Flying Dragon, I was really impressed! I mean, if you feel an instant improvement in the instrument you've been happily using for the last 15 years, isn't it something?!

Dustin Perle | Drum Dept. Manager (CenterStaging) Review on Hybrid Cymbal Boom Stand

Dustin Perle | Drum Dept. Manager (CenterStaging)

The average cymbal stand weighs around 13 lbs, and the Canopus Hybrid weighs only 8 lbs (closer to 7). This hardware is very smart, and very sharp looking. The drum throne is also very classy. Almost feels like an office chair, more than the typical vinyl throne.

Mark Schulman Review on Back Beat Snare Wire 30

Mark Schulman

If you need a snare tone that allows you to communicate the subtlety of every ghost note and the huge fat back of every back beat, then you best buy yourself a Canopus Back Beat Snare Wire 30 or 42 for your favorite snare drum!

Jimmy Macbride Review on Vintage Snare Wire

Jimmy Macbride

Canopus Vintage snare wires will enhance the sound of any snare drum enormously - adding increased depth, sensitivity and dynamic range. I use them on all of my snare drums and cannot recommend them enough.

I installed Bolt Tight washers on one of my drums and it improved the sound immensely while also making the drum easier to tune and help keep its tuning.

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"!!!

Antoine Fatout Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

Antoine Fatout

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!

Vlade Guigni Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

Vlade Guigni

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...
