Overview

Merlin snare; an award winning, Maple and Birch hybrid snare drum from the British Drum company, seen here in the 14” x 5.5” size.

Award Winning Snare Drum

The Merlin snare drum from The British Drum Co. was the winner of the Music Industry Association “Highly Recommended” award under the Percussion Category for the Trusted Music Store Award 2016.

Maple and Birch Snare, Made in Britain

Coming with a nicely full-bodied 20ply, 10.5mm thick shell crafted from a perfect blend of Maple and Birch, the Merlin snare has a clean and clear sound that works well in both high and low tunings.

Its hand cut, 45 degree smooth edges enhance the tonal characteristics of the Merlin while the beautifully silky matt finish ensures it will fit into any musical scenario.

Cold Press Moulding

Key to the British Drum Company’s signature sound is the cold press moulding process. The timber and shells used in these packs are left to naturally acclimatise to the surrounding environment both before and after being moulded so they are shaped perfectly.

With years of experience in wood working and drum shell manufacturing, the British Drum Co. cite this method as the secret ingredient to their incredible sound.

With the absence of heat during the pressing and moulding process, it makes for an incredibly stable drum shell.

Palladium Hardware

As with all British Drum Co.’s snares, the Merlin snare drum comes with their new palladium snare lug with its design based on the art-deco period and it gives life and identity to their great equipment.

It is also with a British traditional snare strainer and snare straps which help give a smoother on-off action. All hoops are 2.3mm triple flange for a more responsive feel and all tension rods are fitted with a 3mm thick black nylon washer to aid smoother tuning and reduce the chance of de-tuning.
