Handmade in Great Britain. Deep and warm, yet very clean sounding snare drum. Ultimate add on to your new British Drum Co. drum kit.

All British Drum Company Legend snare drums now feature their new Palladium snare lug. Designed around the Art-Deco period the new lug gives life to a new identity to be proud of.

All British Drum Co. snare drums are fitted with their British traditional snare strainer and their custom snare straps which help give a smoother on-off action. All hoops are 2.3mm triple flange for a more responsive feel and all tension rods are fitted with a 3mm thick black nylon washer to aid smoother tuning and reduce the chance of de-tuning.


Cold Press Moulding” is key to the British Drum Co’s signature sound. Using years of experience in wood working and drum shell manufacture we believe the secret to our sound and the key to a stable drum shell is the absence of heat when pressing and moulding the shells. Our timber and shells are allowed to naturally acclimatise to the surrounding environment before and after being moulded. Regarded as the finest shells reviewed by Geoff Nichols of Rhythm Magazine.
