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.

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)
Brand: Liberty Drums
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.

Pearl's double chain drive glides silently within the cam channel providing a super smooth, quiet, powerful precision feel. Since there are no sprockets involved, there is much less wear on the chain and less noise in the studio. Includes case.
Bass pedals rely on the shape of the cam - round or offset, large or small - to give each pedal its characteristic action and feel. Some brands offer more than one shape to cater to the diverse style differences and preferences of the drumming public. Unfortunately, if you want another cam you have to buy a whole new pedal or install a new cam providing you can buy one separately in the first place.
Pearl`s PowerShifter Eliminator pedal comes standard with four cams, each with a unique shape and all interchange at the push of a button thus giving the Eliminator the action and feel of four different pedals for the price of one!
Interchangeable Cam System:
The interchangeable cam system features four uniquely shaped cams. The Black Cam is Pearl's original linear-feel cam for smooth, well-balanced action. The White Cam is also linear but larger in diameter for a lighter feel and increased power. The Blue Cam is offset and starts with a light feel at the beginning of the stroke and accelerates with speed and power upon impact. The Red Cam is radically offset and provides great response for sensitive footwork and extreme power upon impact. The Purple Cam is right in between the Blue and Red cams so it splits the difference. The Yellow Cam has a top-heavy feel and it can play moderate tempos with very even dynamics. For example, when playing shuffles, the second beat of the "duh-duh" is as strong as the first. All cams attach and detach easily at the push of a button.
Belt Drive and Dual Chain Drive:
PowerShifter Eliminator pedals are available with either dual chain drive or belt drive. The belt is made from three plies of super-strength polymers for extreme dependability, smoothness and quiet action. Both chain and belt drives are adjustable to allow the angle of the footboard to be set to ones preference. Additionally, the chain (model #CCA-5) and belt (model #BCA-1), both available at your authorized Pearl dealer, can be quickly interchanged using only a drumkey and Phillips head screwdriver.
Traction Control Footboard:
The footboard features Pearl`s Traction Control system that permits the user to alter the amount of slip-resistance on the footboard for optimum control and speed. The integrated Traction Plate features Traction Grip dots, rubberized disks, that can be removed completely or inserted one at a time and selectively positioned to provide just the right amount of slip-resistance where you want for your playing style. In addition, the Traction Plate can be rotated with the Traction Grip dots facing toward the front or the rear of the pedal for traction control near the ball of the foot or near the toes for additional customization of the feel.
The PowerShifter allows the footboard to move forward or backward to change the leverage for light, normal, or heavy feel. Combined with the Interchangeable Cam System, the PowerShifter Eliminator is the most adjustable pedal in the world.
Ergonomically Designed Footboard and Heel:
Featured on all PowerShifter Eliminator, PowerShifter and PowerPro pedals. Footboard surfaces are smooth for "power slides" but give ample resistance for control. Integrated hinge adds speed and increases reliability. The heel is tapered for comfort and control.
Toe Clamp Height Adjuster:
The PowerShifter Eliminator features a Toe Clamp height adjuster that accommodates bass drum hoop of all thickness. The pedal is secured to the drum hoop with a side mounted clamping system that allows easy attachment and removal.
Stainless Steel Universal Joints:
All Pearl Double Pedals feature precision Stainless Steel Universal Joints. We made them 20% thicker than standard steel universal joints to make them the most dependable and precise on the market today!
Standard on all PowerShifter Eliminator and PowerShifter pedals, the QuadBeater features 2 plastic and 2 felt faces to create four distinctly different sounds.
Whether on stage or in the studio the Birch Series provides workhorse versatility with unquestionable thoroughbred performance.
Birch, a hardwood, gives a full bodied sound as its tight grain
structure produces plenty of low-mid punch. Birch, although more
resonant in the top end than Ash, still has plenty of attack while
maintaining a ‘mid-scooped’ tone, a quality favoured by studio engineers
and recording artists.
Birch shells are 7 ply and feature a high gloss lacquer finish.
Finish: Tobacco Fade lacquer

From those very first amplifiers built in the back of Jim Marshall's
music shop in 1960s London, right through to the present day
purpose-built factory in Milton Keynes, Marshall Amplification has
always supported British design, British innovation and British
manufacturing. 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

ground, face to face, also builds greater synergy between Natal UK and
the production team in Taiwan. This partnership ensures that Natal drums
and hardware exceed expectations. Exclusive manufacturing and the
‘hands on’ approach to quality control means that Natal raises the bar

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 comfortabe 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.

Arcadia combines Natal quality and craftsmanship with real value for money. Taking inspiration from the award winning Originals Series, Arcadia kits are designed for drummers who want a lower cost kit, but are unwilling to compromise on sound or build quality.
The Birch shells produce a full bodied sound as its tight grain structure produces plenty of low-mid punch. Although more resonant in the top end than Ash, Birch still has plenty of attack while maintaining a ‘mid-scooped’ tone, a quality favoured by studio engineers and recording artists.

The attack is immediate. And the bright sound of this cymbal - powered
by silver it its B20 Bronze - slices through the music around it. From
low volumes to loud, this cymbal explodes with power and sustain.
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: Photon Blue
*Please Note: Cymbals and Stands are not included.
This rugged, collapsible double-braced 3-legged stand lets you easily adjust the boom on the fly, and it will stay where you put it. Rubber feet keep the PDP Concept Series Cymbal Stand from slipping on the floor, and super-dependable clutches let you put that cymbal where you need it.
