British Drum Company Legend Club 22 Birch 3 Piece Drum Set Carnaby Slate
The mighty sound of birch....
Our Legend Series drums are made from 10 ply 100% Scandinavian Birch, cross laminated and cold-press moulded into a shell only 6mm thick. Adding 2-ply reinforcement rings and precision-cut 45 degree bearing edges results in super-strong, thin shells that promote naturally lower fundamental tones with immediate attack and deep controlled sustain.
With a wide tuning range these precision hand-crafted drums are ultimately versatile. Tune them up to produce clean delicate highs for more subtle playing, and tune them down to get deep and punchy bass drums and thunderous toms with unparalleled low-end growl.
Legend Series drums are equally at home on any stage or any studio and will take you to anywhere your music demands.
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 we believe the secret to our sound and the key to a stable drum shell is the absence of heat when pressing and moulding the shells. Our 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.
All our Legend Series drums are fitted with our elegant “Palladium” hardware.
When designing our lugs and claw we took inspiration from the architectural and automotive designs of the Art Deco period which resulted in an instant classic look we’re extremely proud of.
The lug range comprises of a small single lug (for Legend toms), a large single lug (for Legend bass drums), a short double lug (for snares and Lounge toms), and a long double lug (for deep Lounge toms and Lounge bass drums).
Made from the same cast alloy, the claws echo the lug styling and are completed with Shore 60 hardness moulded rubber gaskets to protect our wooden hoops.
The same Art Deco theme continues into our Palladium tom brackets which uniquely attach to our shells with vertically aligned fixings that don’t stiffen up the shell like other mounts, allowing our shells to resonate a full 360 degrees without dead spots.
Our tom brackets have internal chevron features designed to clamp 10.5mm and 12.5mm diameter L-arms and floor tom legs securely while totally eliminating rotation. Self-aligning and visually integrated memory locks finish the clean look and ensure repeatable positioning.
- Included: 22 x 16″ bass drum, 16 x 16″ floor tom and 12 x 8″ rack tom
