Message to CANOPUS

When I played a Canopus drums first time, I was immediately fell in love with the quality of the harmonics, sound setting and the vintage sound. I met representative of Canoput at Musikmesse 2013, I played some Brazilian rhythm such as samba, bossa nova, baiao. Neo Vintage M1 sounds perfectly fits for these grooves. I am very happy to be a part an artist of Canopus drums which always admired. I hope our partnership and friendship will last for years!
