Message to CANOPUS
think that every drummer, after achieving a certain technical level should have the possibility to develop and apply the acquired technique musically.
Personally, I have been always in the search of a drum set that allowed me to easily replicate the musical phrases I had in mind.
I must say, I have played many drum sets, but there was always something that was left to be desired.
Fortunately, I had the opportunity to play the Canopus drum set.
These new drum sets allowed me the opportunity to easily create tasteful musical phrases with the right sound.
Also, Canopus drum sets are great for playing all styles of music, including jazz, funk and fusion.
They are great for studio recordings because of their deep but delicate sound.
