Shane Says

“When I pitched the idea to the folks at Canopus, they were hesitant at first. I figured it wasn't going to happen. Several months later, I received an email from them saying how amazed they were at the sound, and that they wanted to do it! The end result is this masterpiece; truly one of the finest snare drums I have ever played. It's so remarkably sensitive, and absolutely cracking when it needs to be. Canopus outdid themselves with this one.“

Product Description

The Definitive Boutique Snare Drum!

The one, the only, the flagship of Canopus Drums - The Zelkova. This magnificent snare drum is equal parts genius, eccentricity, opulence and madness. Each Zelkova shell is HOLLOWED FROM A STUMP of precious 200 year old Zelkova wood, also called Akagi or "red wood." The wood is then seasoned naturally for 3 YEARS and treated to reduce the moisture content down to 9 percent. Canopus has perfected this process, and the result is nothing short of miraculous. Believe the hype. Fun fact - The idea for an 8-inch deep Zelkova was conceived at the Drum Center of Portsmouth!
