For those who know what they’re buying and why they cost…
Canopus Snare Wires are special – very special indeed – and if you’ve got a special (vintage) Snare Drum, then that Snare Drum deserves special treatment! With 20 strands fixed to very thin 0.5mm end-pates, the Vintage wires are designed to open up the sound of your old shell and breathe across the full range of its capability.
Canopus Snare Wires are made in Japan, precision manufactured to make sure you get the best response from your Snare Drum. Their attention to detail is striking – but then again, you are paying a premium price for a premium product. If you are in the bracket of Snare Drum buyers who insist on the best vintage drums available, these Snare Wires will already be on your radar.
The Canopus CPSL-14DR Snare Wire is a drier sounding, non-chrome plated model which works really well with wood shelled Snare Drums. If you want to enhance the warmth and open up a wood shell drum, then these are well worth the investment.
The Canopus CPSL-14NP Snare Wire is chrome plated and extremely suited to metal shelled Snare Drums. Enhancing the attack and response of metal shells, these are perfect for old Ludwig/Gretsch/Slingerland drums, especially the chrome-over-brass shells.
The outstanding feedback we have received from customers fitting these to their vintage Snare Drums or equivalent modern high-end drums have convinced us that Canopus Snare Wires are well worth a place on our shop wall.
