Canopus Carbon Fiber Snare

Canopus Cannon Snare Dum Carbon Fiber

After more than 3 years of joint development with a carbon fiber specialist Canopus has managed to produce a unique shell construction. An unprecedented Carbon Fiber Snare sound has been born.

By utilizing the strong properties of carbon fiber Canopus has achieved a shell thickness of 2 mm. With an innovative reinforcing ring design, and Canopus’ unique edge professing, this drum displays remarkable clarity. Canopus has managed to achieve the optimum sound from this material – similar to the characteristics of a hardwood drum. It displays an intense attack with a low fundamental tone. While, typically, a carbon shell may bring to mind an “unnatural” sound, the CTR-1465 has real depth of sound. It gives a sharp short sustain – but never sounds tight or choked. Its response can handle fast passages with remarkable definition and sound quality.
