What We Think

Now, you can enjoy a vintage-like sound which is both dry and resilient. It displays a full low frequency response, short sustain and clear projection. Playing these drums will give you a comfortable feeling of familiarity - like the sound and feel of an instrument you have known for many years.

Canopus 6.5x14 The Brass Polished Shell Snare Drum - Quick n' Dirty

This Canopus 6.5x14 The Brass snare drum has a 1mm brass shell that produces soft and thick tone with a beautiful high brass resonance. The fullness and sensitivity of brass is thoroughly expressed by the shell vibration. Vintage snare wires and brass lugs come as standard equipment. This snare is available for SoundPure's Try-Before-You-Buy Program, so if you want to hear how it sounds in your hands, shoot us an email to Drums@SoundPure.com or call us anytime at 919.682.5552. Thanks for watching!

Manufacturer's Description from Canopus

White Ash was the material widely used to make Fender guitars until the middle of 1950s. Strong attack and quick response are the primary characteristics of this material. Since ash wood is relatively rigid, and challenging to process, its use for musical instruments has gradually decreased over time.

On the other hand, it shows some favorable characteristics - displaying a well balanced nature, both in resiliency and hardness. Of all woods ash has the best strength to weight ratio - making it the wood of choice for baseball bats. Its wonderful bending properties make it popular for fine woodworking and furniture making. These qualities combine to make it an ideal material for strong, light, resonant drums.

We have combined the ash material with poplar and, using Canopus' original processing technique for the bearing edges, this has enabled us to create a drum sound with a "seasoned taste" to it.

About Manufacturer

Based in Japan, Canopus Drums is one of the world’s leading custom drum builders.

In addition to seamless soild-shell shells like the Zelkova model, Canopus offers ply shells from mahogany, birch, and maple, as well as acrylic and, carbon fiber
