Brand: British Drum Co
Based in Stockport and founded by Master Drum Builder Keith Keough, The British Drum Company adheres to the proudest traditions of British drum manufacturing, using only British made shells, employing striking design and committing to constant innovation.
Legend is the British Drum Company's flagship drum set and is the ultimate offering for any drummer.
A culmination of tried and tested traditional methods of shell moulding have resulted in a cold pressed birch shell with mahogany reinforcement rings. Renowned for its studio qualities and live performance, the birch shell pushes very strong mid to high end frequencies and channels a powerful clean tone, that is enhanced by our signature mahogany reinforcement rings.
The shell is furnished with a hand cut 45 degree bearing edge which is finished to a very high standard. Attention to detail is taken in every aspect of the Legend's make up, and no other kit rivals it for its unique cold pressed shells and tonal quality.
The birch ply shell is made up from a 10ply, 6mm thick shell using cross laminated plies. Using almost as many plies to every mm creates a super strong shell for its thickness that enhances the tonal character of the birch shell. The Legend kit is available in six standard finishes but can also be tailored to your specific finish on special request.

Last Salesman finish Classic Maple available! This limited edition finish has now been discontinued by Ludwig meaning this is the last one we'll see.
This revitalization of the 1950s/1960s Sales Rep Kit in collaboration with Patrick Carney (Black Keys) is a superb nod to the past. Proudly made in Monroe, North Carolina, Ludwig takes great care in selecting only the finest quality materials for Classic Maple drums.
This process starts with select North American maple. The maple is cut into panels. The outside panel is 1.8mm thick, two ply, cross laminated maple. Cross lamination is the process in which the panels are made of two glued plies of wood, with the grain direction of one ply at 90 degrees in relation to the grain direction of the adjacent ply. The outside grain runs circumferential with the shell.
The center panel is 2.4 mm thick, three ply, cross-laminated maple. The middle ply runs circumferential with the shell, and the outer plies are at 90 degrees. The inside panel is 1.8mm thick, two ply, cross laminated maple. The inside grain runs circumferential with the shell. This gives the 7-ply shells a total thickness of 6mm.
The bearing edges are cut to a 45 degree angle within 1/16" from the outside edge. The sharp edges are rounded by light sanding for a smooth even surface. This process results in what is the unmistakable signature Ludwig sound.
Finish: Back in the 50s & 60s, Ludwig Road Reps would take similar kits door to door, with the range of finishes applied to one drum. And thus, the Salesman kit was established.
*Please Note: Stands, Cymbals and Snare not included, shell pack only.
New for 2016 - Keystone X - a bold new twist on the classic Ludwig sound.
Rather than merely revisiting the sound that made them famous, Keystone Series Drums carve a new niche in Ludwig's sonic identity. In fusing of their Classic Maple shell core with American Red Oak, Keystone's "pre-EQ'd" tone sculpts focus and articulation for the drummer seeking volume, attack, and power.
Made in the USA
Keystone Series is made under the same strict quality and structural standards as all Classic Maple and Legacy drums. A perfect balance between high-volume cut and subtle articluation is achieved for the live music drummer, putting a modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.
Three-ply Classic Maple core with 1/16" inner and outer plys of American Red Oak.
Keystone's 5-ply combination of a Classic Maple three-ply core between inner and outer 1/16" plys of American Red Oak creates a thin, dense shell that speaks loudly with quick, even decay. To draw further resonance from this unique hybrid, the dual 45-degree bearing edge is pulled to the center of the shell to seat perfectly into the head.
Finish: Arctic Oak - matte lacquered shell (inner and outer)

The shells all feature 7ply American Birch.

It's this ethos that has made the Marshall name, and of course the Marshall sound, recognised the world over. Constant research and development, the manufacture of high quality products and the active search for new opportunities are at the very heart of Marshall.

The Pearl Wedge Tri Site Cajon, from Pearl represents an entirely new method of Cajon construction. The "triangle" instrument offers two identical playing surfaces, which are at a 90° to each other. This allows you to play in an upright sitting position even when you have both hands on the playing surface. The arched side of this Cajon results in a large resonating chamber, on which the bass port is located. This results in the sound receiving significantly more low-end and power. The robust and insensitive fibreglass body is equipped with an imitation wood coating. The snares in the interior of the Cajon are fixed.
The stunning Hand Hammered Series is hammered entirely by hand to create that warmer, lower tone that’s synonymous with hammered shells.
Hand Hammered metal snare drums feature a 1mm thick steel shell with an impressive plated finish. Each shell is hammered entirely by hand creating that warmer, lower tone, synonymous with hammered metal shells. The lower fundamental tone pitches hammered snare drums between wood and flat metal.
During the hammering process extra care is taken to avoid hammering around the seating of the lugs and the throw-off to ensure that they fix flush to the shell. Each Hand Hammered snare is fitted with ‘Sun’ double lugs, Tri-Throw snare mechanism, Tru-Tune tension rods, 2.3mm chrome hoops, 20 strand snare wire, Natal branded snare ribbons and Remo heads.
For years, drummers have coveted the patented Collector's Series Edge snare drum for its hybrid sonic qualities. It consistently delivers the best of metal and wood shell tonal spectrums combined with maximum volume and attack.
Enter the new Reverse Edge snare! This John Good-designed beauty is composed of a raw cast aluminum center and has Walnut wood top and bottom rings. The 14in diameter is 6in in depth and is fitted with MAG Throw-Off Systems with 3 position butt-plates, True-Pitch50 Tuning Rods, True-Tone Snare Wires, True-Hoops, and heads by Remo USA.
Their sound is decidedly warm and fat, making them the perfect backbeat snares.
Mapex started the design of Armory with the idea that players want to spend more time playing and less time tuning their drums. The result is the SONIClear™ Bearing Edge, which increases the contact between the drumhead and shell and allows the head to sit flat on the edge, this produces a stronger and more centred pitch and makes the drums remarkably easy to tune.
The increased contact also enhances shell vibration, making the tonal nuances produced by different shell materials more prominent. The effect of the Armory Hybrid Shell, which uses a blend of maple and birch, is increased brilliance and projection on the rack toms and a fatter and darker punch from the floor toms and bass drum.
Finish: Arctic White
*Please Note: Cymbals and Stands are not included.
Bliss series are new cymbals made in the ancient tradition. Every one is an individual work of art, painstakingly hand forged, and hand hammered.
They have a warmth that seduces at low volume and thunders with a froth of dark undertones at more extreme volumes. These cymbals come alive, shimmering and wobbling as if the mere touch of human hands excites the cymbal and it can’t wait to get it’s voice out there and sing.
They are exceptionally resilient and slightly soft on the stick. The undertones are warm, rich, dark with an edge of dragon’s breath. Each one is a unique, complex voice that will excite your imagination.
These smaller BLISS Cymbals are extremely effective, responsive cymbals. You can play all Bliss cymbals with just your fingertips or crash with your hands or mallets, but they are equally at home under the most driving stick. A little bit of that raw ocean surf and tantalizing trashiness supports the distinctive burst of sound generated by these exceptional crash cymbals.
The STORM Fast Fusion set packs punch, power and potent tone.
With a compact 20x16 kick drum, the 10x7 and 12x8 shallow toms
can be dropped down for positioning at a comfortable height for shorter
stature players or those of us who just like to see above the toms! Those
quicker decaying 10x7 and 12x8 rack toms are cut with the new Soniclear
bearing edge so they tune up quickly and the edge enhances the deeper
frequencies of the Poplar shell with plenty of volume and attack. The 14x12 shallow floor is solid yet not too rumbling, in keeping with the other shells for a unified, clean mix of tone. The colour matched 14x5 snare is well rounded and can be used for any number of genre and style.
