British Drum Co.

British Drum Co. shells manufactured in the UK, boasting handcrafted snare drums and drum kits including the Legend Series, Lounge Series and the Bluebird snare drum.

As one of the most exciting drum companies in Britian, British Drum Company drum kits have risen to become one of the most sought after kits in the UK today. Their drums consist of handmade shells produced in the UK using Scandinavian Birch, adhering to British drum making traditions; with the focus on stunning design, innovation and high quality materials.

Founded in 2015 by award winning master drum maker Keith Keough, Brit Award winning Kasabian drummer Ian Matthews, world renowned comedian and drum lover Al Murray, Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Corps drummer Stu Warmington, and prolific engineering designer Alan Kitching.

The key to the British Drum Company's signature sound is their Cold-Press Moulding technique used in the manufacture of their drums. As the name suggests, this eliminates the use of heat in the shell building process, maintaining the full sonic potential of the wood which would otherwise be compromised by the addition of heat in the pressing procedure.

Notable products include their Legend Series and Lounge Series drum kits, their range of handmade snare drums such as The Big Softy, The Bluebird and The Merlin, plus the Keo percussion range which features cajons, shakers and snare dampeners.
