Tutty Moreno Review on YAIBA II Drum Kit

Tutty Moreno

In my long relationship with Canopus -since the very first time, when I went to the small old factory and was introduced to Zelkova snare (Canopus' only original product by then, circa 1988) - I've never had the slightest doubt about the quality that came from the ideas (and ideals) of Shinichi...

Jason Sutter

Canopus has changed the game again with their new 30 strand snare wire! My new go to snares, as they provide the body and depth of their 40 strand wire with the snap and unrivaled articulation of the 20s...try them and they will be YOUR new go to snares wires!

Curt Bisquera

It responds with more articulation as well as less sympathetic buzz...from the lightest buzz roll to super thundering back beats, this new 30 Strand Wire will make ALL the difference in your sound and playing. It might be my new favorite!

Albe Bonacci Review on Back Beat Snare Wire 30

Albe Bonacci

The new Canopus 30 strand snare wires help me get the perfect balance of shell vs. wire sound. They bridge the gap between the 20 and 42 strand amazingly. With the fat, sensitive, crisp sound I’ ve come to love, without added snare buzz. Beautiful.

John Morgan Review on Neo Vintage NV60-M1

John Morgan

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

The music at Terra Blues NYC is only served one way; authentic. With its rich sounding snare and deep, punchy bass drum, the Canopus drum kit delivers any blues shuffle beat with bonafide results.
