The Mahogany Sound with a Contemporary Edge
Canopus has recognized that Mahogany has a unique sound – heard in many vintage drums. We have taken this special wood and created a new contemporary sound. We have exercised our ingenuity in shell construction- using 6ply mahogany-poplar-birch with maple reinforcement, and edge-shaping to create a clear, crisp, well-rounded tone.
“The CANOPUS Mahogany series drums are in a class by themselves. These instruments really sing. The 18″ Kick drum sounds so huge you would believe it was a 22″ with your eyes closed. The Toms project very well with minimal effort and produce a warm and solid tone with every stroke. The master craftsmen at Canopus Drum company continue to deliver high quality instruments that are unequivocally consistent in both the audio and visual categories. Congrats on the Mahogany series!”

The Mahogany drums sound amazing with the band, the other musicians were surprised at the full sound coming out of this small drum set. The toms are tuned high but still sound full and rich. The 18" bass drum is tuned low and boomy, the snare is tuned high but still very responsive with a fat crack when you lay into it. Overall the drums have a very warm, woody sound. I feel I can get a jazz and rock sound out of this small kit by simply changing my touch.

I have been playing Canopus Drums for over a decade and they are some of the finest instruments being made.
