Powerful presense and rich tone

When playing a metal shell snare drum, in a live or studio situation, sometimes a more powerful presence and maximum intensity of sound is desired. Canopus observed that a thicker metal shell did not automatically meet these demands – they often did not give back a sonic result to match the energy and passion with which the drummer was playing. The Canopus Magnum has an extremely wide range – with unlimited power and intensity. Most importantly, it has a full, rich tone.

It delivers everything that the player wants from it in terms of power, tone and volume. The 3mm seamless brass shell allows it to provide unprecedented sound at extreme volume. What's more, Canopus has developed a unique, original edge shape for the BTR which provides extreme responsiveness and a range of expression guaranteed to satisfy all players.

This snare drum is available in a variety of finishes, so please get in touch to know more. Please note that some of the pictured finishes may not be currently available.
