Sizes: 14"x18"BD/8"x12"TT/14"x14"FT/Optional 5.5"x14" Snare
This is a gorgeous vintage style kit we just got in from the fine folks at Canopus Drums. It is the M1 kit from their Neo-Vintage series & was painstakingly designed to speak with the sonic voice of the much sought after traditional bebop size kits made famous on many of the legendary 1960's jazz records. These drums definitely have that Great Sound! And we'd know, because we've been lucky enough to own quite a few of the original 1960's kits that this set emulates. The maple wood that was carefully selected for these drums is unsurpassed in quality & beauty. These are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside
Thanks to the high quality build on these babies, they far exceed the tuning range of the original 1960's sets they tip their hat to, making them much more than just a one trick pony that you crank up high for bebop. While they do shine in that high tuning range & do the hard-bop jazz thing effortlessly, they also sound angelic at lower & medium tunings.
*This kit features a gorgeous & timeless Natural Oil finish, maple/poplar shell construction, vintage 1960's bearing edges, lo-mass brass lugs, die-cast rims, & Canopus suspension mount for tom tom with bass drum mount.
*(Price is for kit without snare. Snare is an additional $700. See Canopus Snare section for more on this gorgeous matching M1 snare or to purchase separately.)
Below is from the Canopus site:
Classic Jazz Sound
Our shell design for the M1 is a result of analyzing the drum sound that dominated the jazz world in the 1960’s. Our shell construction consists of maple and poplar in 7 ply (for TT/FT) and 10 ply (for BD). Our snare drums utilize the same 7 ply maple and poplar combination, but with a customized layout for the NV60-M1 snare drum. In addition to using vintage bearing edges as a guide for our own unique design, we have adopted die-cast hoops as standard equipment on our floor toms and tom toms. The core of the drum sound comes to life in high pitched tuning, and totally eliminates the differences and instabilities that have traditionally hampered the sound of vintage instruments.
