The British Drum Company are not just continuing this countries fine tradition of drum kit manufacture, they're taking it to whole new level.
Every aspect of this stunning kit has been designed, tested and hand build in their UK factory. The combination of this perfectly blended mahogany and birch shell gives life to a vibrant, full-bodied tone which is aided by a rounded over 30 degree bearing edge. All Lounge Series drums are fitted with the Palladium lugs which are inspired from the Art-Deco period and are centre mounted on the shell. These lugs complete the vintage feel and style.
The kit is then beautifully finished with BDC's trademark mahogany and birch bass drum hoops, which are produced from the same mahogany and birch as both the Lounge and Legend Series drums.
A great combination of woods is featured in the Lounge Series shells. With a thin 5.5mm mahogany and birch shell lovingly hand made from grade A timber. The tonal characteristics of the clean sounding birch is complimented with the warm darker tones of the mahogany unleashing a full-bodied, yet clean tone that sings through like no other shell on the market today.
The bearing edge on the Lounge shell, plays an important role in the drum's sound. Its 30 degree round over bearing edge gives more shell to head contact providing more body to its overall sound. The same edge is cut on all the Lounge Series shells to ensure unity and balance across the drum range.
Cold Press Moulding
"Cold Press Moulding" is key to the British Drum Co's signature sound. Using years of experience in wood working and drum shell manufacture they believe the secret to the sound and the key to a stable drum shell is the absence of heat when pressing and moulding the shells. Their timber and shells are allowed to naturally acclimatise to the surrounding environment before and after being moulded. Regarded as the finest shells reviewed by Geoff Nichols of Rhythm Magazine.
The Lounge Series is beautifully decorated with the elegant and sophisticated full-length Palladium hardware that is unique to the BDC. Inspired the by classic design period of Art-Deco.
