Canopus Drums is entering the 2017 Snare Drum Olympics! Japanese drum manufacturer Canopus is well known for their extremely well-engineered drum products and for the great sound of their instruments. In particular, the unique Canopus Zelkova snare drum which is hollowed out from one piece of two hundred-year-old Zelkova trees (Japanese Redwood) in a special parabolic shape. We don't know which drum or drums Canopus is entering in the contest yet, but any of their high-end drums will set an early benchmark for the contest.
Canopus and all the other contestants will be featured in year long ads in Not So Modern Drummer, announcements and press releases in the other major drum and music consumer and industry magazines and sites, videos on YouTube, displays at the Chicago Drum Show in May, and a lot of buzz on all the social networks.
