Aluminium Aviator

The shell of the British Drum Co Aviator snare is constructed from 1.2mm of seamless aluminium to deliver a sleek aesthetic and a superbly sensitive tone.

The anodised surface of the shell provides a sophisticated look while the aluminium delivers a dry, controlled sound with a brilliantly wide dynamic range.

Allowing you to achieve a superbly varied range of sensitivity, the Aviator produces an articulate stick response to accommodate anything from delicate ghost notes to full on heavy hits.

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

Aviation Aesthetics

Taking inspiration from the stylishly sleek, streamlined looks of aviation's history, British Drum Co have designed their Aviator snare to have a cool, understated aesthetic.

The aluminium shell features a subtle inverted central bead which, in addition to creating a stunning shadow line around the drum, helps to create the controlled tone of the snare.

Fitted with British Drum Co's stylish art deco palladium lugs, palladium strainer and 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, this 14 inch x 5.5 inch snare has a stunningly sophisticated look.

Adding 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 has a cherry veneer insert to add a hint of warmth to the otherwise metallic look of the shell.

The air vent also features a stylish Aviation flight wings badge design to give a clear nod to the aircraft inspired aesthetic.


The second metal snare drum of the British Drum Co range and the very first aluminium snare in the BDC arsenal, the Aviator snare drum is a classy addition to the line-up.

Featuring aircraft inspired sleek design, the 1.2mm aluminium shell with inverted centre band delivers sophisticated style and a superbly sensitive response.

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

The cherry backed logo badge and flight wings vent badge deliver a classy attention to detail to perfectly complete the sleek look.
