British Drum Co Aviator Snare Drum has landed. The first-ever Aluminium snare drum from the British Drum Co was influenced by the graceful lines and gleaming metal profiles of the classic craft of aviation history. Aviator is a snare drum to inspire your playing to stratospheric heights. This stylish, elegant snare drum delivers a dry, controlled sound with a sensitive response over a wide dynamic range. Aviator inspires you to articulate your sticking from graceful ghost notes to a full-throated roaring backbeat. This drum offers you a full range of crisp, clean sounds to suit all types of playing. Crafted from a seamless 1.2mm solid Aluminium shell, Aviator looks stunning with its sophisticated anodised surface, beautifully complemented by our stylish Palladium hardware. The cool, understated aesthetic of Aviator is highlighted by the subtle inverted central bead, presenting a stunning shadow line around the shell. The cosmetic appeal of Aviator is delicately enhanced by an element of warmth courtesy of the Cherry veneer insert integrated within the iconic British Drum Co ‘B’ badge.
The main features include:
- 1.2mm Aluminium shell with choice of 5.5″ and 6.5″ depths
- Triple-flanged hoops
- Palladium lugs
- Palladium snare strainer
- Laser-engraved name badge embellished with a piece of Cherry veneer brings a touch of warmth to the Aviator’s look
