What a line-up! The Opus One series is packed with versatility, color, taste, and personality. It's great to see a series aimed to put the basics at their best: easy command of tuning and timbral control; simple construction and design; good sounding pitch at all tunings with beautiful tone; a refreshing beautiful look.

The Opus One snare drums have an incredible richness and depth to their sound while also having the ability to cut through the texture of an orchestra. Each model offers a unique tone and color that can help draw the appropriate character out of a piece. We are incredibly delighted to have the Opus One drums in our snare drum inventory!

The 14" x 4" brass Opus One snare has become my main instrument of choice. It's beautiful construction, unparalleled sensitivity, and evenness of articulation at all dynamics allows me to perform modern repertoire without having to sacrifice warmth for clarity.

From the very first notes on my Opus One 4" X 14" Brass drum, I knew I had found my go-to Delecluse and solo drum. Clear, resonant, and responsive at all dynamic levels, this drum allows me to express the most amount of information possible to the listener. It's the type of instrument that perks ears and turns heads.
