British Drum Co. snare drums are manufactured in the UK to the highest of standards with a stunning attention to detail.

As one of the most exciting drum companies in Britain, 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.

Winner for the Music Industry Association Award for "Highly Recommended" under the Percussion Category for the Trusted Music Store Award 2016.

The Merlin, with a hefty 20ply, 10.5mm thick shell struck from a perfect recipe of maple and birch. With its 45 degree super smooth edges and 1.8mm hand cut snare beds, its lustrous silky matt finish makes the Merlin fit perfectly into any musical situation.

Already a favourite amongst pro drummers, the Merlin has gained recognition as one of the top snare drums on the market today.

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.
