What We Think

The Canopus The Brass snare drum brings a vintage style with modern build quality to new heights. This eight lug drum features Canopus' brass double sided lugs with a pair of chrome die cast hoops on top and bottom. This design minimizes the amount of surface area taken up on the shell and really allows the drum to resonate. The brass shell delivers the crispness generally associated with metal snare drums but also a warm tone, with clear and defined rim shots that are capable cutting through louder music. The lower tunings have a nice wet defined note that is perfect for backbeats and the higher tunings excel at crisp snap and attack. The die cast hoops create a nice focused sound allowing heavy hitters to achieve greater rimshots and more dynamic players will appreciate the beautiful side-stick note. On the road less travelled, the Canopus The Brass snare drum delivers big tone in a minimalistic package.
