Message to CANOPUS
This snare produces a crisp and full tone, with great sensibility. It works fantastic at various ranges, being a great choice when the word is versatility. The vintage wires, brass lugs and die cast hoops make this snare a top notch choice!
This kit has incredible tone quality, it's easy to tune and very balanced in sound. Its touch and feel are great, which makes this set a dream come true if you are looking for that vintage sound with a modern approach. Canopus craftsmanship has produced these kits with great projection, clarity, and control and I feel fortunate to play these phenomenal instruments!
