Classic Kit with Deep Tone
British Drum Co offer two different drum kit series.
The legend was designed to offer an upfront modern sound filled with attacking projection, while the lounge series provides more of a warm, old school sound.
Featuring a mixture of mahogany and birch combined with 30 degree bearing edges, this 3-piece British Drum Co kit offers vintage vibes in a modern format.
British Drum Co. Lounge Series 24” 3-Piece Shell Pack Configuration:

Built entirely by hand in the North West of England, these British Drum Co Lounge Series drums feature shells made from 9 plies of mahogany and Scandinavian birch.
The shells feature a cross laminated construction to deliver a 5.5mm shell that offers superior strength despite its thin size.
The combination of the two woods serves to deliver a rich, well balanced drum sound filled with the best characteristics of both woods.
Mahogany drums typically offer muted highs with smooth mids and a warm low-end response, while birch is known for it’s prominent highs, reduced mid-range and punchy bottom end.
What mahogany lacks in highs birch makes up for, while the smooth mids of mahogany fill the gap left by the subdued mid-range of birch.
With each wood compensating for potential short comings in the other’s character, the two woods compliment each other brilliantly to produce a well-balanced drum sound filled with vibrant resonance and cutting projection.
Capable of delivering responsive warmth and brightness as well as full depth and richness, the British Drum Co lounge kit offers versatile tone that’s able to meet the most diverse musical demands.
As with all shells in the BDC lounge series, these drums feature hand cut 30-degree round over bearing edges to add a wonderfully warm character to the kit sound.
The combination of the rich low-end warmth of mahogany, the punchy bottom end of the birch and the 30 degree bearing edges serves to deliver a drum sound filled with darkness and projection that’s typical of vintage kits.
Offering a superbly wide tuning range to accommodate the sound requirements of any style or performance setting, this British drum co kit delivers low fat tones when tuned down and bright warmth when cranked higher.
The ideal option for a vast array of playing styles, this British Drum Co lounge kit is a workhorse that will always deliver the sound you need.
The cutting projection of birch makes it ideal for the stage, while the deep warmth of mahogany makes it ideal for studio recording.
While other drum builders utilize heat in their production process, British Drum Co believe the absence of heat is what give their drum their signature sound.
British Drum Co use a proprietary cold press moulding system in the creation of their drum kits that allows the timber and shells to acclimatise naturally to the surrounding environmental temperature.
By allowing the wood to naturally acclimatise both before and after the moulding process, BDC believe they achieve the most stable drum shell possible.
The result is a drum kit that offers reliable tuning and optimum resonance.
This British Drum Company Lounge kit features a rich Kensington Crown finish to deliver an instantly classic style.
Echoing the vintage vibe of the kit’s sound, the deep brown colour of the Kensington Crown finish gives a nod to old school drum kits of the past.
The grained brown aesthetic of the shells offers a look filled with serious sophistication that is accentuated beautifully by the art deco styling of the palladium hardware.
The mahogany hoops of the bass drum offset the darker shell finish perfectly to add a sleek contrast of colour to the overall look.
Serving up vintage class in style and sound, this is a super sophisticated kit for the modern drummer with an old soul.
Art Deco Design
The British Drum Co lounge Kensington Crown kit is fitted with diamond chrome-plated full-length palladium lugs and low mass palladium brackets.
Providing a sleek and sophisticated look to the drum kit, the British designed Palladium hardware injects some classic art deco style into the kit aesthetic.
The low mass palladium brackets ensure minimal contact between the brackets and the drum shells to ensure the drums maintain their optimum resonance and sustain.
The 13” and 16” toms are both framed with 2.3mm triple flanged hoops to provide versatile tuning and the lugs feature nyloc inserts to prevent de-tuning while you play.
The brackets also feature integral palladium memory locks to provide quick, convenient and consistent kit set up every time.
All the drums are fitted with BDC branded Remo USA drumheads as standard to deliver optimum durability and superior sound straight out of the box.
Offering classic tone from a current kit, this British Drum Company Lounge Kit in Kensington Crown delivers modern day vintage vibes.
The blend of mahogany and birch serves to provide a beautifully balanced kit sound that has all bases covered.
The loud cutting projection of birch offers stage presence while the full warm lows of mahogany ensure depth of tone in the studio.
