Canopus Drums


In our opinion, the folks at Canopus Drums offer the absolute pinnacle in drum manufacture. With their ‘Regular’, ‘Vintage’ and ‘R&D’ lines, Canopus are able to give you exactly the sound you hear in your head.

If you are after cutting edge contemporary sounds, the RFM, Ash or Birch series drums marry painstakingly researched construction features and shell configurations with tried and tested wood species.

Or perhaps you are looking for ‘that classic 60s’ sound’? The Neo Vintage series has got you covered. Featuring round-over bearing edges and classic (or ‘vintage’) shell configurations, coupled with typical Japanese precision craftsmanship, the gorgeous sounding drums are built to last and are an absolute dream to play.

At the other end of the spectrum, the R&D series aims to push boundaries by developing drums using modern materials (Acrylic, Carbon Fibre and more), as well as current technology and production techniques.
