AXIAL SERIES PIPE BAND DRUMS

PIPE BAND DRUMS FROM THE FUTURE

Axial is the brand new range of advanced technology pipe band drums from the British Drum Co.

 

Handcrafted in the UK to British Drum Co.’s highest standards, the Axial range represents a seminal moment in the evolution of pipe band drums. Featuring a snare drum, tenor drum and bass drum, the Axial range is both visually stunning and technically impressive.

 

Axial is the high-tension snare drum reinvented! 

Axial takes the concept of a high-tension, free-floating system to unsurpassed levels of innovation and performance.

 

Each drum is handbuilt using our unique cold-press moulding process to create an 8ply grade A Scandinavian Birch shell and features our revolutionary N-Circle™ bearing edge system. Axial hardware has been designed and precision engineered using low-mass, high-strength metals for optimum functionality. 

 

Every Axial drum is supplied with a British Drum Co.

Magnetik marching drum key as standard.

 

SNARE DRUM

British Drum Co.’s flagship pipe band snare drum. The Axial snare drum is innovation defined. Featuring our brand new Patent Pending Direct Drive snare mechanisms for optimum parallel snare positioning. 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 drummer’s snare drum.

DIRECT DRIVE UPPER SNARE

Our Patent Pending snare mechanism is precision engineered from super-light aircraft grade aluminium. This innovative upper snare mechanism guarantees optimum parallel snare wire positioning with a single, uncomplicated adjustment.

Snare height is operated by thumbscrews meaning 100% tool-less adjustment for extremely effective snare response. The elegant design offers fast snare wire changes and ensures snare wires will not move during normal playing.

DIRECT DRIVE LOWER SNARE

N-Circle™ is a revolution in snare drum bearing-edge technology.

 

Designed to equalise the distribution of tension across the bottom head, N-Circle™ is a finely tuned piece of engineering which acts as a vital component in the Axial snare drum. 

 

Precision crafted from high-density composite materials, N-Circle™ utilises a 45º round over bearing-edge providing the optimum balance between head contact and tension for controlled tuning and excellent playability.

 

The resulting increase in structural strength creates a more resilient shell and allows for higher tension throughout the drum.
