I first played Canopus drums at 'Smalls' jazz club in NYC with Joshua Redman, they had a warmth and depth of a truly vintage sound. It was like I was born to play these drums!! I used the R.F.M. on Brandon Flowers solo record, they were amazing in the studio, easy to mic and they really sang!! Touring with Brandon the Zelkova snare will reach the very back of the arena, and I need everyone to feel that backbeat! I believe in this company, they have a love for the instrument that they craft into every drum, and you will feel it!! Truly unique.
