The Canopus Zelkova! Yes, the legend! One peice of hollowed wood into the shape of a snare drum, no tension, no glue, just the wood! This is made from 200 year old Zelkova wood, also called Akagi or “red wood.” The sound that is produced from a single piece of wood has a unique and powerful attack. Each stroke produces a “block of sound” with a sharp edge and a thick low pitch, while maintaining the warmth of natural wood. The special nature of Zelkova is highly revered and sought after by top drummers around the world.
