The Legend Series is British Drum Co’s flagship range and features their 10ply birch shells set off by a new Exo-Tone series finish called Night Skye.
Hand Crafted in Britain
The British Drum Co Legend kit is constructed from 100% Scandinavian birch and features cross laminated 10 ply / 6mm shells. This cross-lamination process means the grains of each ply are altered between vertical and horizontal to deliver a super strong and durable shell build despite its thin size.
The thin 6mm profile serves to provide a drum shell with superb resonance and full projection with a naturally lower fundamental tone.The combination of the grain alternation process and the thin shell construction works to ensure a drum kit with brilliant strength and robust resonance. Each of the shells are also finished with 2 ply reinforcement rings to provide extra strength and to add improved focus to the shell tone.
Exo-Tone Night Skye finish
One of a range of colour options available, the Night Skye finish is part of British Drum Co’s Exo-Tone series. Providing a classic black aesthetic filled with subtle flecks of shimmering sparkle, the Night Skye finish delivers a super sophisticated look.
The cold press moulding process allows BDC to put the laminate finish into the mould as the first layer of the drum shell. This means there is an exceptionally strong bond between the finish and the drum as the finish laminate practically becomes part of the shell.
The laminate is precisely hand cut and perfectly fitted to ensure both ends butt up together before being covered with a stylish laser cut Exo-Tone strip.

Adding a beautiful touch of elegance to the drum shell finish, each of the shells of the BDC Legend kit are adorned with their stunning Palladium hardware. Inspired by the architecture and automotive design of the Art Deco period, the stylish palladium hardware provides an instantly classic look.
Toms and floor tom are fitted with small single lugs while the bass drum has larger single lugs. The 22” bass drum is fitted with cast alloy claws which echo the palladium lug styling and feature Shore 60 hardness moulded rubber gaskets to protect the wooden hoops.
Toms and floor toms are fitted with Palladium tom brackets that feature a vertical fixing that ensures minimal contact between the bracket and drum to deliver 360-degree shell resonance. The brackets also have an internal chevron feature that provides a secure hold of tom arms and floor tom legs whilst preventing rotation. Each tom bracket is fitted with a self-aligning and visually integrated memory lock to deliver clean looks and easily replicable settings.
