Specialized Rock sound with 10 lugs

Type-R's wood shell delivers the power of a metal drum – with great projection and crispness.

In today’s rock drum sound, role of the snare drum can be seen like the engine in a car – to move the music forward, and to provide a definitive backbeat for the band.

Canopus applied an extremely accurate bearing edge to an 8mm American Maple shell to bring out the maximum power and projection. They have also applied acrylic lacquer to make the sound more solid.

By making it with 10 lugs, Canopus managed to produce a shorter shell vibration – giving a tight, sharp sound.
Moreover, they used Red Lock (CLT-4), to ensure that the tension bolts do not loosen.
