Message to CANOPUS
I was introduced to Canopus Drums by Darren Beckett on a tour of New Zealand and Australia in 2010. The tour was a triple bill featuring Diana Krall, Madeline Peyroux and Melody Gardot. Darren was kind enough to let me use his Canopus RFM’s for the run and they quickly became the drums I sought for every engagement.
