Canopus Vintage Snarewire 14"
From a warm whisper to a deep roar - Elevate your snare drum to its full potential The snare drum is the most important component in the drum set, and the snare-wire is a crucial component of your drum’s sound. This fact has not been widely recognized until very recently; only a few drummers understand this important connection. In 1960, Ludwig and Slingerland manufactured what has now become the standard for good vintage wires. Several manufacturers have tried to re-produce the sound. After years of research, we have replicated the Slingerland wire taking several factors into account such as material, spiral diameter and pitch. We finally decided on a core thickness of 0.5 mm, a spiral diameter of 1.35mm and a pitch of 3.4 mm. In that process, we also found that the end plate is another determinant of a snare-wire’s sensitivity, and we have tried various sizes for these as well. We concluded that 0.5mm is optimal to hold the wires. We also decided to exclude the guiding grooves for snare strings and tapes that most manufacturers use. These guiding grooves impaired the sensitivity of the snare drum. Our end plate is quite thin however; it may have caused breakage of strings and tapes. We resolved the problem by having the lapel at the holes on the end plate. After years of careful analysis of the material composition, thickness of the end plate, shaping experiments and production consideration, we have the CANOPUS Vintage Snare Wire.Super Jazz drummer Bill Stewart once visited us. He was so impressed by our proto-type Vintage Snare Wires he asked us if he could use it. Many CANOPUS endorsers appreciate the sound quality of this snare wire. 42 Strand Rich Impact These new Canopus 42 strand snare wires give a unique rich and full sound, and provide great impact.Having 42 strands may initially give an impression of being “too much”, but the VSW-42 wires feature ultra thin end plates – allowing players to enjoy maximum tone and response at all volume levels, whilst also providing great sensitivity and control over the sound. Players can enjoy a comfortably muted, tight sound and very quick response. * 0.5mm thick Brass End Plate* Vintage Wire 42 Strand* Dry (DR) Only

Canopus BackBeat Snarewire
Snare wires which enhance even the subtitles of nuances in the midst of very loud backbeats! By adopting spiral wires with an abundance of coils coupled with 1mm end-plates, we have achieved a good balance between volume that is aggressive enough for a powerful backbeat and swift response for delicate phrasing. With this one snare wire, you can hav a an aggressive, loud snare sound and maintain sensitivity. CPSS-BB14DR（Dry=Without plating） These snare wires create a loud attack and sharp response even for ghost notes. Very effective for wood-shell snare drums. CPSS-BB14NP（Nickel plated） These snare wires have both a loud attack and bright sound. They have an enormous effect on metal-shell snare drums. They will improve the potential of a loud snare tremendously. CPSS-BB14SNPW (Nickel Plated) Canopus Back Beat snare wires have been developed to emphasize the back-beat – especially in high volume situations where the snare sound may feel like it is being buried by other instruments.Maintaining these qualities of the standard Canopus Back Beat wires, we have developed the extra wide 42 strand snare wire – which allows the drummer to play comfortably, without straining, while delivering a full, pleasing snare back-beat at all volume levels. We have eliminated 2 common problems of other wide snares: 1) Canopus 42 strand snare wires do not mute the resonance and response of the drum. 2) We have controlled the indistinct sound created by excess snare buzz. Furthermore, the 42 strand snare uses high quality nickel plated wires which highlight every nuance of sound and vibration and yet have a controlled response and sustain. Enjoy the open, powerful and responsive sound.

Canopus Snare Wire Parts
Nylon Snare Wire Belt (CNB) We have selected flexible nylon fiber for its excellent durability in a woven belt. With this innovative snare belt, we got a natural response of a snare wire similar to the snare wire cord, and what is more, the choked sound caused by conventional film belt is not noticed at all. Snare Wire Cord (CNC) This is an ideal cord for a sustaining, “natural bound” and “stabilizing” snare wire. The only drawback used to be a sudden break of the string while in use.Canopus has conducted research into core fiber material, thread volume and weaving technique to come up with a very durable snare cord with natural bound (compared with our products in the past).The fitting of these snare wires have vastly improved whether loosely or tightly adjusted. This is a most suitable item for situations where delicacy is required (in a recording for instance).
Canopus Bolt Tight
By combining Bolt-Tight and Red-Lock, you have our “Iron-Wall Guard” to ensure that even tuning and consistent sound are retained through even the most punishing performances.

Canopus 1 Ply snare drum
What is 1ply Series? When we look back on the history of snare drums we see a transition of crafting techniques. From hollowed one piece shell, to 1 ply shell, to plywood shell with reinforcement, plywood shell without reinforcement, and then block shell construction. Though this transition was in the pursuit of efficiency, each method of construction has resulted in a different sound. Through Canopus’ research into the various combinations of materials, number of plies, and reinforcement we have continued to introduce a variety of new drums. With the Zelkova snare drum Canopus has presented the ultimate sound for a one piece, hollowed shell. The notable characteristics of a 1-ply shell are a deep sound and pure tone. It has been a new challenge for Canopus to take advantage of these qualities and create new instruments displaying the diverse sound character of different wood materials. The 1ply Oak Snare Drum White Oak is very familiar to drummers as a material for drumsticks. The primary characteristics of oak are its hardness and resilience. The unique combination of hardness and density provides superior projection. The sound has a perfect balance of both high and low end frequencies. The White Oaks snare drum gives a unique sound – powerful tone and projection. Lugs: Chrome Hoop: High End Vintage Hoop / 8 Snarewire: Vintage CPSL-14DR Shell: 1ply Oak 4,5mm / reinforcement hoops High Edge HoopWith a height of 20.5mm these hoops offer direct sound projection and focused sound. These hoops will respond to different stick positions to produce a wide variety of rim shot sounds. The 1ply Maple Snare Drum It is generally recognized that, when compared to plywood, a single-ply maple shell gives a softer, warmer sound. However, due to the drying process, many single-ply shells have a dominant high frequency which is somewhat unpleasant to the ear. We searched for the ideal material to overcome this obstacle – and it came true when we met master wood-craftsman, Mr.Anton Sutej. The material he has chosen – “Soft Maple” features an unmatched softness – its very nature gives the classic, vintage sound – with a sense of nostalgia that transcends history and time. It provides a smoothness of sound not usually found in modern drums. SSSM is brought to life by the fusion of our soft maple material and the unique techniques of Canopus. It comes equipped with our newly developed nickel plated Brass Straight Hoops as standard feature. The classic, vintage sound of the “good old days” – highly sought in “collectors item” drums has been reproduced by Canopus. Lug: Chrome Hoop: Brass Straight Hoop / 8 Snarewire: Vintage CPSL-14DR Shell: 1ply soft maple 5.5mm / reinforcement hoops Finish: oil, wrap or lacquer Brass Straight HoopThe distinctive character of brass hoops is a soft and pure sustain – perfectly suited to the reproduction of the classic, vintage sound. Strainer A nylon nut is built in the strainer switch CSA-20S.Canopus’ switch is so designed to prevent “loosening of snare wire” during the performance by creating moderate friction on the tension adjustment dial by the torque controlled nylon nut.
