British Drum Co’s flagship pipe band snare drum, the Axial snare drum is innovation defined. This 14″ x 12″ snare drum features an 8-ply Grade ‘A’ Scandinavian Birch with 45° top bearing edge ensuring optimum drumhead performance. Pioneering technological advances include the patent-pending super-light aircraft grade Aluminium Direct Drive upper and lower snare mechanisms for optimum parallel snare positioning, and the N-Circle™ bearing edge system utilising a 45° bearing edge providing the optimum balance between the head contact and tension for controlled tuning and excellent playability. Axial’s distinctive aesthetic owes much to its X-Frame™ cage-style tension system. This futuristic anodised Aluminium hardware is designed to complement the out-of-this-world shell finish options. Designed and engineered to look amazing, sound amazing and feel amazing, Axial is the pipe band drummer’s snare drum. All Axial snare drums are factory-fitted with Remo drumheads and supplied with a British Drum Co Magnetik Marching Drum Key.
