The shells of the British Drum Co Legend kit are constructed entirely from Scandinavian Birch which is hand crafted into cross laminated 10 ply / 6mm shells.
The cross-lamination process involves alternating the grain direction of each ply as it is placed into the mould in order to deliver a super strong and durable shell.
The result is a set of drum shells that offer superior strength, rich resonance and ease of tuning to deliver full projection and a naturally lower fundamental tone.
Characterised by its boosted highs, reduced mids and punchy low-end response, birch delivers a drum sound filled with loud volume and piercing cut.
The ideal option for stage performance thanks to its powerful projection, this BDC legend kit is also capable of delivering depth of tone in the studio thanks to its robust lows.
Each shell is also fitted with 2 ply reinforcement rings to provide extra strength and add improved focus to the kit sound.
The end result is a drum kit that serves up awesome power and projection to deliver versatile modern tone.
Helping to accentuate the modern, upfront sound of the birch shells, each drum is finished with precision cut 45 degree bearing edges.
Working to add fast attack and deep control to the sound of the drums, the use of hand cut 45 degree bearing edges provides superb projection ideal for live performance.
As a result, the British Drum Co Legend kit offers a sound filled with modern immediacy and forthright impact.
Capable of producing crisp delicacy in high tunings combined with deep growling punchiness in lower tunings, this BDC legend kit is rich and resonant.
One of the key features of the British Drum Co building process, and what sets them apart from other drum manufacturers, is their cold press moulding system.
While some drum builders use heat during their shell production, the British Drum Company prefer to allow their timber and shells to acclimatize naturally to the surrounding temperature and environment before, during and after moulding.
Providing what they believe to be the secret to the success of their stable drum shells, the absence of heat when pressing and moulding the shells is what gives the drums their signature BDC sound.
Part of British Drum Co’s Exo-Tone finish range, this stunning Piccadilly White finish delivers a sleek, shimmering white aesthetic that exudes high end sophistication.
The cold press moulding process used by BDC allows the laminate finish to be put into the mould as the first layer of the drum shell.
This means there is an exceptionally strong bond between the finish and the shell because the laminate is technically part of the shell.
The finish laminate is precisely cut and perfectly fitted so that both ends butt together before being covered with a stylish laser cut Exo-Tone strip.
Not only does this precise attention to detail ensure a smart aesthetic it also works to make sure there is no wrap lift, overlap or splitting.
Furthermore, putting the finish laminate in the mould during the shell building process also means the shell is the correct size, unlike other companies who wrap the shell after moulding.
As a result, drumheads fit and sit better on the shells to provide improved tuning and tonal response.
Art Deco Styling
All the shells of the British Drum Co Legend shell pack are adorned with BDC’s signature palladium hardware.
Taking inspiration from architecture and automotive design of the art deco period, the stylish palladium hardware offers an instantly classic look.
The 12” rack tom and 16” floor tom are fitted with small single lugs while the bass drum has larger single lugs.
All of the lugs also feature nyloc inserts to prevent de-tuning while you play.
The 22” bass drum features cast alloy claws which echo the palladium lug styling and feature Shore 60 hardness rubber gaskets to protect the wooden hoops.
Both toms feature Palladium tom brackets that have been specifically designed to ensure minimal contact with the shell in order to provide full 360-degree resonance.
The tom brackets also feature integrated self-aligning memory locks to accommodate easy and consistent setup.
The two toms are framed with 2.3mm triple flanged hoops to provide versatile tuning and the bass drum features matching Piccadilly White bass drum hoops to ensure a consistent and clean aesthetic.
Offering versatile tone filled with robust power and cutting projection, this British Drum Co kit is the ideal choice for the diverse modern drummer.
The 10-ply cold press moulded birch shells, reinforcement rings and 45 degree bearing edges combine to offer a super strong drum kit with rich resonance, impactful punch and piercing volume.
