Inspired by the aviation industry. The British Drum Co. ‘Aviator’ 14 x 6.5″ Aluminium Snare Drum takes the gleaming metal profiles and elegant lines used historically in aeronautic design, to create a drum that looks and sounds gorgeous.

The shell is crafted from seamless 1.2mm aluminium, with a smooth, matte, anodised surface being complemented by shining Palladium hardware. The sound is crisp, bone-dry and controlled, with a sensitive response at all dynamic levels. From grooves loaded with ghost notes, to solid pocket beats; the Aviator delivers a full range of clean snare tones for any kind of drummer.

    The Aviator incorporates aviation design and materials to give you a stunning sound and a distinct look. With a crisp sound and sensitive response at all dynamics, every detail of your drumming can be heard, whether you’re recording in the studio or performing on stage.

    The subtle nuances of the shell design are a sight to behold. There’s an inverted central bead around the shell, providing a visual shadow line all the way around. As with other British Drum Co snares, the logo badge features its own unique touch: a Cherry veneer insert providing a colourful tone to the ‘b’ logo.

    Unique Palladium hardware

    The British Drum Co. worked long and hard on the development of Palladium hardware. Inspired by the Art Deco period of art and design with its unique geometric patterns, both the sound and appearance were a careful consideration in its design. The chrome plated steel design ensures your snare drum is practical, sounds incredible and looks beautiful.
