Seamless Aluminium Shell

The British Drum Company Aviator snare features a 1.2mm seamless aluminium shell to deliver a sleek aesthetic and a superbly sensitive tone.

The anodised surface of the shell creates a sophisticated appearance while the aluminium produces a dry, controlled sound with a brilliantly wide dynamic range.

Offering a superb amount of sensitivity, the Aviator provides an articulate stick response to accommodate anything from delicate ghost notes to blistering back beats. 

Producing a crisp, clean sound suitable for all playing styles and musical genres, the Aviator is a versatile snare for the diverse, modern drummer.

Aircraft Aesthetics

Influenced by the stylishly sleek, streamlined looks of aviation history, the British Drum Company have designed their Aviator snare to have a cool, understated aesthetic.

Creating a stunning shadow line around the centre of the drum, the aluminium shell features a subtle inverted central bead which also serves to control the tone of the snare.

The Aviator is fitted with BDC's stylish art deco palladium lugs, palladium strainer and 2.3mm triple flanged hoops that perfectly complement the sophisticated look of the shell.

Providing the level of attention to detail we've come to expect from the British Drum Company, the Aviator snare is fitted with a B badge that's backed with a cherry veneer to add a hint of warmth to the otherwise metallic aesthetic.

Topped off with a stylish Aviation flight wings badge that gives a clear nod to the aircraft inspired design, this snare has a refined look to match its controlled sound.


The follow up to the British Drum Co. Bluebird snare, the Aviator is a classy addition to BDC's metal snare line up.

With its aircraft inspired sleek design, the inverted centre beaded 1.2mm aluminium shell delivers sophisticated style and a superbly sensitive response.

Providing crisp articulation and dry control, the Aviator produces a brilliantly versatile range of tone ideal for a wide variety of styles.

Perfectly completing the sleek look, the cherry backed logo badge and flight wings vent badge add a classy attention to detail.
