100% English Yew

As with all British Drum Co drums, the Archer snare is made by hand in the North West of England to the highest quality standards.

Constructed from 10 plies of 100% English Yew Wood, the BDC Archer offers an alternative to the standard birch and maple drums on the market.

Yew was traditionally used in the creation of longbows by medieval English archers who favoured the wood because of its durable flexibility and robust strength.

British Drum Co have taken the characteristics of English Yew and injected them into the world of drums.

Creating a snare drum with supreme power and reliability, the BDC Archer snare generates a rich warm tone filled with fast attack.

Delivering a wide range of versatile tone, the 14" x 6" Archer snare drum produces a warm sound capable of achieving anything from maple like clarity to lively, potent brightness.

Whether you need the cut required for live performance settings or the depth of tone for studio recording, the Archer snare delivers understated confidence and stylistic flexibility to fulfil the most diverse musical needs.

30 Degree Bearing Edges

The Archer's English Yew shell is finished off with hand cut 30-degree round over bearing edges which perfectly complement the tone of the wood.

Known for its old school warm sound, the 30-degree bearing edge works brilliantly with the rich tone of the 10 ply English Yew shell to deliver a robust blend of punchy impact and tonal depth.

Cold Mould

All the British Drum Company drums are made using their unique cold press moulding process.

The plies of the drums are painstakingly hand cut to precise sizes, glued and placed into the mould where they are then pressed at room temperature.

The result is a drum shell with exceptional structural and tonal integrity.

Archer Aesthetics

The British Drum Company Archer snare drum has a stunning aesthetic.

Featuring eye catching trimmings, the 14" x 6" Archer has the attention to detail we've come to expect from the BDC range.

The Archer is fitted with vintage style mini claws, gold plated tension rods and a beautiful golden B badge embellished with green sycamore in recognition of British Drum Co's English heritage.

Adding a classy touch the vent badge of the snare is shaped like an arrow head, perfectly tying in the snare's name and the English Yew link to longbow crafting.

The snare is finished off with British Drum Co's beautiful palladium lugs and strainer, brass snare wires and black B logo snare straps.


Combining beautiful style with brilliantly versatile tone, the British Drum Co Archer snare drum is as pleasing to look at as it is to listen to.

The English Yew shell delivers a wide range of tone filled with rich warmth and fast punchy attack ideal for a variety of musical styles and settings.

The immense attention to detail in the form of the green backed gold badge and arrow head air vent, combined with the single flanged hoops, claw hooks and gold-plated tension rods, works to provide a snare with a truly beautiful aesthetic.
