Made of 10ply, 6mm birch, there are almost two plies for every mm, making for a super strong shell with amazing tonal character from the birch that is enhanced by the shell’s overall thickness.
The Legend shell’s bearing edge also plays an integral role in the sound of the drum. In the Legend Series, the bearing edge is hand cut and features an inner 45 degree cut with a 1mm, 45 degree outer cut.
Key to the British Drum Company’s signature sound is the cold press moulding process. Every drum is hand built by skilled craftsmen. The shells are precision-cut to achieve the desired thickness. When the craftsmen hear the ‘click’ of each ply accurately fitting into place, they know they have achieved the perfect fit. Cold-press moulding is the heart of the British Drum Co. signature sound.
Every British Drum Co. Legend Series kit is fitted with Palladium hardware. Solid, reliable engineered hardware, beautifully presented in rich, chrome-plated steel – Palladium plays a major part in making British Drum Co. drums look and sound amazing!
