Sharp, Dark Tone with Great Presence

Bubinga wood characteristically creates a dark tone with solid core sound. It is much harder and heavier than Maple or Birch and beacause of these it has been associated with a high, metalic overtone wich some drummers find difficult to deal with. However, by coordinating the number of piles and using our unique edge shaping, CANOPUS has created a pleasant sound with incredible definition.

What is R&D Line?

The drums of Canopus R&D Line have been developed in order to satisfy particular sound concepts created in the course of our ongoing research, and as a result of our commitment to meeting the specific needs of our endorsers.
In our efforts to bring these “sound concepts” to life we use unique materials of outstanding quality. We strive to bring out the unique character of each material.
The result is a series of drums which, though not necessarily “all-round” or absolutely versatile, possess an amazing individuality.
While we regularly sell R&D line drums made to our suggested specifications, we are also able to accommodate customers’ special requests regarding bearing edge shape, hardware and colors.
