The iconic Palladium hardware that now graces all British Drum Co. drums is one of our proudest achievements.
Led by our design team, we worked long and hard in the development of this elegant hardware, researching the geometric and graceful examples of the classic Art Deco period of art and design. The elegant symmetry of the architecture, the flowing lines of the automotive industries' greatest cars and the timeless poster designs from the classic days of cinema all contributed to the melting pot of influences that led to Palladium.
The aesthetics alone were not our only challenge. Whatever we developed also had to function as a piece of high-quality drum hardware, enhancing and complementing the integrity of our shells. Practicality of production was also a major consideration, ensuring trouble-free manufacture whilst maintaining a consistent look and feel of every item.
The result was the outstanding hardware that you see on all our drums. Unique and instantly recognisable, Palladium hardware is a confident example of our commitment to quality and innovation. There is even a respectful nod to the heritage of classic British drum making. Solid, reliable engineered hardware, beautifully presented in rich, chrome-plated steel - Palladium plays a major part in making British Drum Co. drums look amazing, sound amazing and feel amazing!
