Message to CANOPUS
I tried Canopus Drums for the first time at a big show with all the big drum brands represented there. I had the chance to try most of them but when I put my eyes and drumsticks on the beautiful Canopus I knew this was the sound, looks and quality I was looking for. You get every little bit of shell resonance and amazing sound with Canopus Drums, no doubt my drum kit for life
