British Drum Company 5.5x14 The Duke snare drum
This is an incredible snare drum and it is made from 3000 year old Bog Oak wood. We have four of these very limited drums coming our way so pre-order now (ships in May).
At the heart of this very special limited edition snare drum is a spectacular shell made from 3000 year-old bog oak. The bog oak, carbon dated to approximately 1000BC, has been crafted into a 6mm thick 10-ply shell using our cold mould process in our UK factory. We’ve then added a further 2-plys in bog oak reinforcement rings and round-over bearing edges to further unleash the naturally warm and dark sound of this incredible wood.
The Duke features 10-lugs, single-flange chrome plated hoops, mini butterfly claws, 24ct gold-plated slotted tension rods and is our first snare to feature our smooth-action Palladium Mk II snare strainer.
