Hal Leonard to Distribute Canopus Drum Accessories, Hardware

Hal Leonard has been named the exclusive distributor of the Canopus boutique line of drum accessories and hardware for the U.S. and Canada, effective immediately. 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 boasting more modern appointments and features. Product categories include Bolt Tight, Brass Washers, Hybrid Hardware and Lightweight Hardware, Mufflers and an extensive line of snares. For Hal Leonard, Canopus has been added to its current lineup of Gibraltar and Gretsch hardware as well as its Gretsch full-range line of drums.

“Canopus is so beloved by [its] artists. We are honored and excited to bring this line to our network of dealers,” said Brad Smith, vice president of Hal Leonard’s MI products distribution. “Canopus is a great compliment to our current lineup. 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,” said 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.”
