Not long ago, we took a look at the Canopus Yoshihito Eto signature snare drum (go check out the review and watch the video – excellent drum). In that same shipment, the good people at Canopus were nice enough to ship over two drums from their Neo Vintage series. Each of the snares in this […]Read more "Canopus Neo Vintage M4 Snare Drum"
They’re back! Tama’s original run of Superstar drums have an excellent reputation among collectors, and are favored for their full, focused, and punchy tone.

They’re really nice sticks, and you should take a few minutes to read the review.
