The New YAIBA Groove and Bop kits are the result of Canopus's research into finding the perfect shell type to suit specific sonic and stylistic requirements. They settled upon Birch (6-ply) for the Groove kit and Maple for the Bop kit. Their commitment to producing the ideal sound led them to this decision to use different shell types within one series – in this, Canopus are confident to say that they have introduced a completely new concept to the drum industry.
The New YAIBA models have inherited the great Canopus sound and have also specialized and refined the concept of the original YAIBA – but they sit in a much more affordable price range. This is a “dream come true” for those drummers who have always wanted to easily have the Canopus sound.
In producing these drums, Canopus adopted a different approach for the shell construction, heads and hardware. In addition to this, they switched from nitrocellulose lacquer, the use of which is particularly costly and time consuming, to a different type of lacquer – one used by many other drum makers for their high-end models. This has reduced the time of the drying process, shortened their overall production time and enabled them to significantly reduce the kit's price.
With all the revolutionary ideas featured in New YAIBA, it is indeed a drum kit of unmatched price and value.
