Dry and Dark Sound
The ideals sought for the Harvey Mason signature snare drum were described as “dry” and “short sustain”.
The main shell construction is White Birch, which gives a dark tone and great projection. Canopus added an outer ply of Walnut to add dryness and to give a shorter, controlled sustain.
The shell is designed with an inner grain direction to emphasize the direct sound. It really is a versatile snare drum that responds well to multiple head choices in many genres of music.
Canopus applied the perfect matching bearing edge to this hybrid shell and managed to obtain a crisp and pleasant sound.
This snare is especially good for Jazz and Fusion styles.
Harvey Mason says:
'My Canopus snare drums are versatile, consistent, warm, bright, responsive, sensitive, and equally adaptable in live gigs or recording sessions. And it’s hand- made!! It’s a must for every serious drum artist and studio. Trust me on this!!'
