BDC Lounge Windermere Pearl
Established in 2015, British Drum Company have gained popularity in a very short space of time thanks to their stunning attention to detail and beautifully handcrafted drum creations.
Owned by master drum builder Keith Keough, comedian and drummer Al Murray and internationally successful Kasabian drummer Ian Matthews to name a few, this company has a wealth of knowledge and experience at its disposal.
Sitting alongside their flagship Legend series, the Lounge kits provide a different shell construction to offer a warmer balance of tone.
The beautiful blend of mahogany and birch combined with 30 degree bearing edges serves to deliver a modern kit with a vintage vibe.
British Drum Co. Lounge Series 22” 3-Piece Shell Pack Configuration:
- 22” x 14” Bass Drum
- 12” x 8” Rack Tom
- 16” x 16” Floor Tom
Cold Mould Process
While other drum manufacturers like to incorporate heat into their drum building process, British Drum Co believe the absence of it is what makes their signature sound.
That's why they utilise a proprietary cold press moulding system that allows the timber and shells to naturally acclimatise to the surrounding environment before and after moulding to ensure the most stable drum shell is achieved.
Each of the wood plies put into the cold mould are cross laminated to ensure a super strong shell construction.
The cross-lamination process means the grains of each ply are alternated between vertical and horizontal to deliver a strong and durable shell build.
The result is 5.5mm thick lounge shells that produces superb resonance thanks to their thin size without jeopardising strength.
British Built Blend
British Drum Co’s lounge series kits are constructed from 9 plies of mahogany and Scandinavian birch to deliver a beautifully well-rounded characterful sound.
Combining the best of both woods, these drums capture the boosted highs, reduced mid-range and punchy lows of birch and blend them perfectly with the subtle highs, smooth mids and warm bottom end of mahogany.
The result is a BDC drumkit that delivers loud and cutting projection courtesy of the birch wood and vibrant resonance thanks to the mahogany.
The combination of the two produces a drum sound that’s brilliantly versatile; offering a depth of tone that’s 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.
Vintage Style Round Overs
All of the hand-crafted shells in this BDC lounge kit are finished with precision cut 30-degree round over bearing edges to inject a wonderfully warm character to the kit sound.
The combination of the rich low end of mahogany and the use of 30-degree bearing edges serves to deliver the tremendously dark tone and punchy projection synonymous with vintage kits.
Providing a superbly wide tuning range to accommodate the sound requirements of any style or setting, this kit produces low fat tones when tuned down and bright warmth when cranked higher.
Offering incredibly versatile tone and classically vintage vibes, this is a beautiful kit capable of meeting the most diverse demands.
One of 4 colours available in the lounge series, Windermere White delivers a stunningly sophisticated aesthetic.
The beautiful pearlescent finish offers a shimmering marble-like appearance to provide a classically stylish look.
The darker shade of the bass drum hoops creates a striking contrast to the light finish for a classy attention to detail.
Providing vintage style to match its wonderfully vintage sound, this British Drum Co kit is beautiful to look at and listen to.
Each of the shells are adorned with British Drum Co’s elegant Palladium hardware to perfectly accentuate the classy aesthetic of the Windermere Pearl.
Inspired by automotive and architectural design of the Art Deco period, the sleek palladium hardware provides an instantly classic look.
Each of the shells are fitted with long double ended lugs to provide a consistently clean and cohesive aesthetic across the kit.
The 22” bass drum is fitted with cast alloy claw hooks which continue the palladium lug styling and are lined with Shore 60 hardness moulded rubber gaskets to protect the wooden hoops.
Maintaining the vintage styling of the kit, the 12” rack tom is designed to be mounted from a snare stand (sold separately) and should ideally be paired with British Drum Co 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.
The 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 provides a secure hold of the floor tom legs by eliminating rotation.
All of the tom brackets are fitted with a self-aligning and visually integrated memory lock to deliver clean looks and easily replicable settings.
Providing brilliantly versatile tone thanks to the stunning blend of mahogany and birch, the British Drum Co Lounge kit is the ideal choice for the diverse modern drummer.
The 30 degree bearing edges ensure a superbly rich, warm tone perfect for recording, while the shell construction offers punchy projection ideal for the stage.
The vintage styling of the palladium lugs and Windermere Pearl finish serves to ensure this kit looks as stunning as it sounds.
