British Drum Co Regimental Series RS1 Snare Drum is designed and built exclusively in Britain. This 14″ x 12″ marching snare drum features an 8-ply 5mm Grade ‘A’ Scandinavian Birch and Old English Oak shell with 45° bearing edges ensuring optimum drumhead resonance, matching high-grade Aluminium powdercoat hoops, British Drum Co’s trademark Art Deco-style Palladium lugs, unique DragonTooth snare throw-off lever, MkII Palladium strainer and polished Stainless Steel ball feet. Brand new cutting-edge technology and innovation can be found in the drum’s new Levitone™ top and bottom snare mechanisms. The fully self-levelling top snare mechanism features an ultra-lightweight ‘heart’ device that controls the tension of a drive strap, which raises and lowers the snare wire height and ensures consistent snare wire contact across the drumhead. The bottom snare mechanism also optimises snare wire contact and when thrown-off, suspension bands pull the snare wires cleanly off the drumhead in a smooth parallel action ensuring no contact regardless of the drum’s orientation. All Regimental Series RS1 snare drums are factory-fitted with Remo drumheads and supplied with a British Drum Co Magnetik Marching Drum Key.
Available as standard in military livery, gloss black and gloss white finishes.
