Shell DesignA 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
Bearing EdgeThe 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 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.
