Message to CANOPUS
The search is over! I have finally found my musical voice.
Played light or strong the tone is pure, warm and really sings. I have played many different rental kits on different tours and stages from Europe and Australia to Africa and Japan. When I first played a Canopus kit on a gig in Miami I couldn’t believe the sound and feel of the drums. I was immediately in love.
The love affair continues! Thank you Canopus for a true work of art.
