Message to CANOPUS
Wow!!!!!!!!!!! I am so impressed with my Canopus snare wires and although I did not think that they would make a big difference, they really did. The response I got from these wires after putting them on my snare was like night and day. I used the DR wires on my 13 x 9 snare since I play a Motown style with my band Soul Sound Revue. Conversely, when I am performing in a Gospel setting I tend to use the NP wires and they also work out great. Most drummers know the ugly overtones you get from playing especially when the speaker in back of you or next to you just rattles and everyone then asks “where are the overtones coming from?” For me, I don’t have to deal with overtones anymore thanks to Canopus. I am proud to be part of the Canopus family and I look forward to a great future with Canopus.
