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)

Condition: Very good condition. Batter head is a Remo Ambassador Coated with some stick marks.
Nicknamed “The Brick” for its sheer weight, the Epic “Brick” snare drum employs a 20-ply, 15mm thick, 7x14" all Birch shell for tight focus and articulate play at high-volumes. 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops and separate tension Keystone lugs are added to the equation for higher tuning capabilities.

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.

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.
Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. In 2014, three crashes and two hats join the series to expand the unique Masters sound atmosphere to additional cymbal types. Masters integrate the experience of the decades long art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers.
Paiste 22in Masters "Rosie" Crisp Ride
Sound Character: Fairly bright, rich, open, warm. Wide range, fairly clean mix. Even, controllable feel with quick response. Crisp, clear stick sound over a rich, warm wash. All-purpose ride cymbal suitable for a broad range of musical styles. Developed in co-operation with session great Ndugu Chancler.
The aesthetically striking shell is hammered entirely by hand to create a drier, darker fundamental tone than flat alloy or wood. During the traditional hammering process extra care is taken to avoid hammering around the lug seatings and the throw-off to ensure that they fix flush to the shell.
META Hand Hammered features brushed nickel Originals Series hardware fittings: Sun lugs, three-way Tri-Throw snare mechanism, Tru-Tune tension rods for more stable tuning, triple flanged hoops, with 20 strand snare wire, Natal branded woven snare tapes and Evans heads.
The Falcon Single Pedal (P1000) and the Falcon Double Pedal (P1000TW) are completely new designs from Mapex and both models are designed to be the smoothest-playing pedals ever made.
The Falcon’s exclusive hollow inox steel drive shaft offers the utmost in strength without adding unwanted drag or excess weight. This increases the smooth operation of the pedal and gives Falcon a sensationally smooth feel. By allowing the torque-free spring mechanism to move independently the Falcon’s stroke and recoil motions are exceptionally smooth and feel more natural to the foot.
"Every feature and adjustment has been engineered to make Falcon feel as if it's an extension of your foot," said Joe Hibbs, R and D Manager at Mapex USA. “Every artist that has tested this pedal has been able to fine tune it to their liking within minutes — right out of the box. Falcon is a pedal for the people. This is a pedal that can satisfy virtually every drummer.”
Because the Falcon’s footprint is more compact than other bass drum pedals, it’s easy to comfortably position between the hi-hat and snare stands. The Falcon’s easy-to-reach, resistance-free Talon clamp adjustment can be tightened with one hand from a seated position, making set-up quick and easy, even in the tightest spaces.
The Falcon’s patented Talon bass drum hoop clamp features locking claws that move independently from the pedal frame. Even if the bass drum is pitched at a severe angle, the pedal remains flat to the floor and securely clamped to the drum for the utmost comfort and security
The Falcon is equipped with interchangeable cams to suit each player’s individual style. The “Glide” cam offers an equal amount of inertia from the beginning to the end of the stroke, while the “Pursuit” cam is recommended for increased power and maximum impact. The reversible beater head comes with interchangeable 10 gram and 20 gram inserts. By choosing one of these weights (or playing without any additional weight at all) the player can choose the desired degree of centrifugal force.
The Falcon’s footboard design provides the feel of a longer board without the additional weight and mass. A lighter footboard provides greater control with less fatigue and its uniquely sculpted profile allows the players to position his foot at any angle and operate the pedal with minimal expended energy, making even the most intricate patterns seem effortless.
The footboard angle and beater angle are independently adjustable, enabling the player to fine-tune the ideal combination of playing comfort and force of stroke. The footboard and heel plate are hinged using an exclusive sealed bearing mechanism that offers zero resistance and secure operation with no lateral movement.
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.

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.
