As it happens we chose metalworking at first. Copper, brass, titanium, and stainless steel for all of their differences have one common advantage - a powerful and piercing sound.
First series of snares by ARCANUM Drum Company with the name “ARTIST” demonstrated the acoustic potential of each type of metal and different methods of processing.
However, we didn’t give up on our experiments. While testing a copper double-layer shell we found a way better sound than we were expecting! With this new design, we managed to discover copper’s tonal spectrum, which made its sounding deeper and wider. After that, we tested this double-layer design with each metal we could use. We also designed new hoops based on the same principle. And as for the light lugs and the strainer with magnetic resistance - they have been waiting for their “hour of triumph”. And that’s how we created our custom series – the “HAND CANNON”!
In order to combine the new sound of HAND CANNON with the artistic richness of the ARTIST project, we came up with the HAND CANNON Autograph series!
