British Drum Co. Legend Series is British Drum Co’s flagship drum range and is the ultimate offering for any modern rock drummer.
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.
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.
A culmination of tried and tested traditional methods of shell moulding have resulted in a cold pressed birch shell with unique “Finish-Matching” reinforcement rings, an attention to detail that’s become expected of British Drum Co. Hand cut 45 degree bearing edges polished to a smooth lustre ensures the British Drum Co. Legend Series will adapt to any musical situation.
The Legend Series is beautifully decorated with elegant and sophisticated Palladium hardware that is unique to British Drum Co. Inspired by the classic design period of Art-Deco.
