BDC Lounge Wiltshire White
Despite being relative new comers to the drum world, the British Drum Company have catapulted to success thanks to their stunning attention to detail and beautifully handcrafted drum creations.
Owned by Kasabian drummer Ian Matthews, master drum builder Keith Keough (previously of Premier Drums) and Pub Landlord comedian and drummer Al Murray to name a few, this company has a wealth of knowledge and experience at its disposal.
Sitting perfectly alongside their Legend series kits, the Lounge drumkits provide a different shell construction to offer a warmer balance of tone.
The combination of mahogany, birch and 30 degree bearing edges serves to deliver a modern kit with a vintage vibe.
British Drum Co. Lounge Series 20” 3-Piece Shell Pack Configuration:
- 20” x 14” Bass Drum
- 12” x 8” Rack Tom
- 14” x 14” Floor Tom
Mahogany / Birch Blend
The shells of the British Drum Co Lounge kit are constructed from 9 plies of mahogany and Scandinavian birch to deliver a beautifully well-rounded characterful sound.
Utilising the best of both woods, these drums capture the boosted highs, reduced mids and punchy lows of birch and blend them with the subdued highs, smooth mids and warm bottom end of mahogany.
The result is a drum kit that offers loud and cutting projection courtesy of the birch wood and vibrant resonance thanks to the mahogany.
The blend of the two ensures a drum kit with a brilliantly versatile depth of tone ideal for a wide range of playing styles and musical settings.
The cutting projection and powerful bottom end of birch ensures this kit delivers impact on stage, while the beautifully warm, rich tone of mahogany is ideal for the studio.
Whereas other drum builders incorporate heat into their drum manufacturing process, British Drum Co believe the absence of it is what makes their signature sound.
Their proprietary cold press moulding system means the timber and shells are allowed to naturally acclimatise to the surrounding environment before and after moulding to ensure the most stable drum shell.
Each of the wood plies put into the cold mould are cross laminated to ensure a super strong shell construction.
This cross-lamination process means the grains of each ply are alternated between vertical and horizontal to deliver a super strong and durable shell build.
The result is 5.5mm thick lounge series shells that produce superb resonance thanks to their thin size without jeopardising strength.
30 Degree Round Over
Each of the hand crafted shells in this BDC Lounge kit are finished with precision cut 30-degree round over bearing edges to add a wonderfully warm character to the kit sound.
The combination of the rich low end of mahogany and the 30-degree hand cut edges serves to deliver a drumkit sound with a tremendously dark tone and punchy projection synonymous with vintage kits.
Offering an extremely wide tuning range to accommodate the sound requirements of any style or setting, this kit produces low fat tones when tuned down and brighter warmth when tuned higher.
Producing incredibly versatile tone and classically vintage vibes, this is a stunning kit capable of meeting the most varied of demands.
One of 4 colour options available in the lounge series, the Wiltshire White finish offers a beautifully natural aesthetic.
The stunning light colour of the outer ply features the natural wood grain to give each individual kit its own unique appearance.
The darker shade of the bass drum hoops provides a striking contrast for a stylishly classy look.
Offering sophisticated vintage style to match its wonderfully vintage sound, this British Drum Co kit is beautiful to look at and listen to.
Art Deco Detail
Perfectly accentuating the classy aesthetic of this lounge drumkit, each of the shells are adorned with BDC’s elegant Palladium Hardware.
Inspired by the architecture and automotive design of the Art Deco period, the stylish palladium hardware provides an instantly classic look.
All the shells are fitted with long double lugs to provide a consistently clean and cohesive aesthetic across the kit.
The 20” bass drum features cast alloy claw hooks which echo the palladium lug styling and are lined with Shore 60 hardness moulded rubber gaskets to protect the wooden hoops.
In keeping with the vintage styling of this kit, the rack tom is designed to be mounted from a snare stand (sold separately) and should ideally be paired with British Drum Co’s Tom Springs to ensure optimum tom tone.
The 16” floor tom is fitted with Palladium tom brackets that have a vertical fixing to ensure minimal contact between the drum and bracket.
This minimal contact ensures the floor tom is able to resonate freely 360 degrees around the shell without dead spots.
The brackets also have an internal chevron feature that not only provides a strong hold of floor tom legs but also totally eliminates rotation.
Each tom bracket is fitted with a self-aligning and visually integrated memory lock to deliver clean looks and easily replicable settings.
Delivering wonderfully versatile tone courtesy of the stunning blend of mahogany and birch, the British Drum Co Lounge kit is the ideal choice for the drummer who plays various styles.
The use of 30 degree rounded over bearing edges ensures a kit with a superbly rich warm tone ideal for recording, combined with punchy projection needed on stage.
The brilliantly vintage styling of the palladium lugs and Wiltshire White finish serve to ensure this kit looks as stunning as it sounds.
