Connor Hopkins I am BDC announcement

From playing on BDC kits to visiting the factory, Ellie has been looking forward to joining the BDC family of artists. Ellie writes "Every BDC kit that I’ve seen, played and heard has been flawless. However, visiting the factory took me from loving BDC drums to ADORING BDC drums. I was blown away by the craftsmanship and genuine passion that goes into the production of BDC drums. I left and told everyone I knew, drummers and non-drummers that they HAD to just see the workmanship and skill that goes into making these drums."

"The experience was a drummer’s version of being in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! Just seeing the precision alongside the love and care that goes into what they do really blew me away." - Ellie

Ellie chose a LEGEND series drum kit in a special edition finish of a high-gloss radiant seafoam green. "Everything about this kit is what I had envisioned my “perfect” drum kit would look like since I was a little girl. It’s bold, it’s fun and it’s beautiful."

Alongside her new kit, Ellie has chosen a Bluebird snare to accompany it. "When I put the Bluebird into a higher tuning, it was a no brainer for me. The response and the crisp attack just made me want to take it out on a gig, instantly!"

Tina Clarke, Artist Relations Manager at British Drum Co., comments on the latest addition. "I’m excited to welcome Ellie East to the BDC artist family. I love Ellie’s enthusiasm for drums and all things BDC. Ellie had a very specific vision for the colour of her dream kit, I’m very happy that we managed to exceed Ellie’s expectations. The kit looks and sounds amazing, it’s probably one of my favourite finishes ever"
