Matt Starr

Bolt Tight has opened up my snare drum SO much, it was a big surprise. I can't wait to try them on my toms!

Jess Birch (Steve Maxwell NY) Review on Bolt Tight

Bolt Tight is one of my favorite Canopus products. It adds depth Eliot Zigmund aand tone to my drums. Tuning is smoother and more accurate. Its also a great upgrade for vintage drums.

Eric White (SIR New York) Review on Bolt Tight

Bolt Tight washers are a brilliant addition to any drum. They create an almost hydraulic feel to the tension rods and make tuning the drums a pleasure. Bolt Tight = good stuff.

Uli Frost Review on Bolt Tight

If you like a solution for a great drum tuning, then use Canopus Bolt Tight.

Mick Frangou Review on Speed Star Bearing

Mick Frangou

When I tried out my pedal on my kick drum with the Speed Star bearing I realised the return was significantly faster than with the pedal's original factory fitted bearing, almost too fast. I like a very light spring tension on my pedals and, at first, it was difficult to get the spring light...

Anthony Michelli

I just installed Canopus' Speed Star Bearing on my Sonor Perfect Balance pedal. It makes this already amazing pedal even smoother, faster and effortless to play on. Excellent!

Alphonse Mouzon Review on R.F.M. Series

Alphonse Mouzon

CANOPUS R.F.M drum kit are the best drums that I’ve ever played thus far! Their strengths are in the design, quality and exceptional sound!! It doesn't matter if I’m playing a “live” concert or recording in the studio, the impeccable steady tone, sound and crispness of CANOPUS DRUMS comes...

Pheeroan akLaff Review on Birch Series

Pheeroan akLaff

Birch is my favorite wood for the American Drum-set. It's projection can respond to 20th Century instruments and it's resonance is mellow enough to blend with ancient instruments. The Canopus artisans bring out the most musical resonance in birch I have heard.

Bolt Tight is a great product. We find it really keeps drums in tune whilst still allowing you to tension any bolt at any time

If you want the warmest sound for your snare, you got to get the Canopus Bolt Tight. For the most sensitivity, Bolt Tights are the one.

Jonathon Peretz Review on Hybrid Cymbal Stand

Jonathon Peretz

Strong but not too heavy. Definitely lighter than stands of equal size and strength. Very easy to adjust and tighten.

Dean Schweiger Review on Flat Base Snare Stand

Dean Schweiger

I have been using all Canopus hardware for years and can not speak highly enough about how well they have served me on my tour. At almost every show I receive high praise, comments, and questions on the Canopus hardware I use in my set up.

Tutty Moreno(Joyce) Review on LIght Weight Hi-Hat Stand

Tutty Moreno(Joyce)

For a drummer who travels and tours all the time, it's great and comfortable to have hardware as light as this. Canopus made this with real grace, a beautiful design and functionality. I can definitely say that Canopus is the future-today.

Matt Starr Review on Back Beat Snare Wire 42

Matt Starr

Canopus snares have dramatically improved the sound of my snare drum. Warmer, fatter & more clarity.

Lee Ruff Review on Vintage Snare Wire

Lee Ruff

Your line of snare wires is absolutely great. It's quite obvious that you have done extensive experimenting in the development of your line of snare wires. I can remember when I was touring back in the 60s, how snare wires were designed. Many drummers today still put the "old" wires on a "new"...

Fred Dinkins Review on Vintage Snare Wire

Fred Dinkins

Canopus snare wires are the best! They allow you to execute dynamics with ease. You can hear the smallest ghost notes and eliminate unwanted snare chatter because of the extreme sensitivity that you get from the snare wires
