Message to CANOPUS
I play the Canopus Neo Vintage Series NV 60-M1. They are a tribute to the legendary Round Badge Gretsch Drums from the 60's except the NV 60-M1 series have a greater range of tuning possibilities as well as a wider dynamic range. Essentially, Canopus has brought these historic drums into the 21st century, maintaining all the desirable qualities of vintage drums while be able to function in a modern setting.
