Hal Leonard is now the exclusive distributor of the Canopus' “boutique” line of high-quality drum accessories and hardware for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The Canopus drum set line will remain direct with Canopus.

Based in Tokyo and founded in 1977, Canopus hardware leans towards the classic vintage drum hardware, with more modern appointments and features. Product categories include Bolt Tight, Brass Washers, Hybrid Hardware & Light Weight Hardware, Mufflers, and an extensive line of snares. For Hal Leonard, Canopus is added to their current lineup of Gibraltar and Gretsch hardware as well as Gretsch Full Range line of drums.

“Canopus is so beloved by their artists. We are honored and excited to bring this line to our network of dealers,” says Brad Smith, VP of Hal Leonard MI Products Distribution. “Canopus is a great compliment to our current line-up. These unique products give the dealers and their customers more options.”

“We’ve worked hard to get in this position. Hal Leonard offers the right level of support to serve the world’s largest music-making market,” says Nori Kitagawa, Canopus International Sales Manager. “We look forward to many years of success, releasing new products and servicing the creative drummers who want the best. You have our commitment.”
