Message to CANOPUS
After many years of collecting drums, both vintage and beyond, I have finally found in Canopus a company that encompasses the sounds I crave, in their ability to hand craft incredible consistent instruments. I no longer have to search far and wide to find drum kits that suit me, Canopus are making them all!
