The options are nearly limitless:

Plies, thickness, wood type, edges, and depth


Chrome plated aluminum tube lug

Chrome plated brass tube

Cast modern tube


Hand-tooled brass tube

Counter hoops

1.6 Triple flange:

It's no coincidence that 1.6 hoops are used on most vintage drum kits. These hoops feel great on the hands and have less complex overtones 

2.3 Triple flange:

These hoops give a little extra power, a modern crack, and more resonance

2.3 Double flange with clips:

These hoops offer a dry, articulate crack

Die cast:

This option would include contrast to the 1.6 and 2.3 hoops. Excellent for when a drier sound is desired with a pronounced side stick


Throw and butt:


The working drummer's throw

Light, greaseless, smooth and locks when engaged

Modern side throw:

Smooth, traditional throw with ergonomic rubber knob


Canopus Vintage

Our standard bearing edge is a 30 degree with a small 45 counter-cut back to the apex

Extreme sensitivity

Type 2: A bit more narrow for more vintage response and less cross-talk
