Kit Setup

“I first played a British Drum Company drum kit last year at the Hundred Festival, since then I knew I had to have one.  I needed a kit that is adaptable to the variety of genres I play. From funk and soul to pop and rock, BDC is the perfect fit. The bright tones, attack and level of sustain control that the Legend Series has gives me the perfect level of adaptability I need. The attention to detail and level of precision in the creative process is what sets British Drum Company aside from the rest.  I loved the idea of representing a brand with such rich heritage and British roots incorporating traditional craftsmanship in their manufacturing process. I chose the Whitehaven finish as it has a vintage and high calibre look to it, the sparkling finish with hints of green, orange and pink looks stunning under stage lighting and is adaptable visually to any aesthetic”.
