The L30-1455ICM is the result of our experiment blending the projection and response of maple with the rigid and resilient features of carbon fiber.
When dealing with a hybrid shell blending wood and carbon fiber, the characteristics of the wood tend to be more noticeable, and high-priced carbon fiber could easily be only regarded as covering material (e.g. acrylic material).
With the L30-1455ICM , we have created a distinctive sound by carefully researching the ratio of carbon fiber to maple, the bearing edge, and the shape of the bed. The production of sound now draws a unique curve line: (Fig. C curve)
In order to further highlight the shell’s character, we have adopted an all-round edge and a flat 3mm-deep bed that controls the response of the snare wire and drum shell when the volume drops to the softest ranges. This snare drum responds dramatically when a force above a certain level is applied and the sound totally disappears when it falls below a certain level. This gives the L30-1455 ICM a unique characteristic that is different from all other Canopus drums pursuing a distinctive interaction with the snare wires. Additionally, since it is designed for use in situations where no control is required at low volumes, it is actually very easy to play. You can experience clear cut attacks in your drum rolls that are unimpeded by resonating wires from previous attacks.
