REGIMENTAL SERIES MARCHING DRUMS

INNOVATION FORGED FROM TRADITION

The Regimental Series is the brand new range of marching drums from the British Drum Co.

 

Handcrafted in the UK to British Drum Co.’s highest standards, the Regimental Series represents a groundbreaking moment in the evolution of marching drums. The range is comprised of four snare drums, three bass drums and a tenor drum.

 

What makes the Regimental Series stand apart from the competition is the level of innovation incorporated into the design of every drum.

 

Each drum is handbuilt with an 8ply 5mm grade A Scandinavian Birch shell and finished with an interior veneer of Old English Oak and a 45º bearing edge. Our art-deco inspired Palladium hardware adorns every drum to deliver stylish and reliable functionality.

BRITISH DRUM CO. MARCHING DIVISION

We are extremely proud of our Regimental Series range of marching drums. From the very beginning of the British Drum Co. it has been our goal to develop a range of military drums that recognises and respects the heritage of British drum-making whilst pushing the boundaries with outstanding innovation.

 

At the heart of the Regimental Series is the combined vision of master drum-builder Keith Keough, Marching Division Manager Stu Warmington and Engineering Design Manager, Alan Kitching.  Keith’s reputation as one of the world’s foremost craftsman in the world of drum-making is assured, whilst Stu is universally recognised as a major authority on all aspects of military and marching drumming. Alan Kitching is respected within the drumming community for his expertise and innovation as an outstanding design engineer. Alan has been instrumental in the design and development of the hardware innovations in the Regimental Series.

Together, their expertise represents the pinnacle of marching drum knowledge and influence within the sector.

 

The marching drumming community has witnessed the development of the British Drum Co., building a respect that has attracted such world-class performers as 19 times World Drum Corps Champion, Jim Kilpatrick, who celebrates his role with us as International Marching Specialist. 

 

We continue to attract global players and performers who recognise the high quality of the drums we make and embrace our values of supporting the marching world at the very highest levels. We hold true to our mission to create marching drums that look amazing, sound amazing and make you feel amazing!
