Rich started his BDC journey with his visit to the headquarters for a Factory Tour back in December last year. His experience was certainly enlightening, as he writes "BDC make the most incredible instruments. They do this by-hand, with passion, innovation and meticulous attention to detail. "

"I like music and art that is beautifully crafted and has a strong sense of individual identity" Rich continues, "BDC drums embody these characteristics, they really are works of art in their own right. All aspects of construction is second-to-none, and it all adds up to beautiful and unique instruments which sound and look incredible. This is why I choose to play BDC drums.”

Rich Kass' kit setup is quite the list! He chose three kits in a shimmering Whitehaven finish, alongside four of our BDC snares; The Archer, Aviator, Bluebird and a fabulous Founder's Reserve Bog Oak.

Regarding his chosen finish, Rich responds “The Whitehaven finish is the perfect finish for me! The white colour is neutral so blends perfectly with any surrounding, but as soon as the stage lights hit it, it turns into a kaleidoscope producing such beautiful depth of colour and brilliant reflections of light. It sounds and feels beautiful to play. You can really tell that these drums have been hand-built at every step of the build-process."

"It sounds, feels and looks beautiful. I was particularly impressed with the build quality of everything as I set up the drums for the first time - everything looks and feels premium and built to last and the bearing edges on every drum were perfect - which is a first!" - Rich

Keith Keough, CEO of British Drum Company, "We are thrilled to have Rich Kass join our BDC artist roster. Rich is an extraordinary drummer with great talent and we can't wait to see him perform with his new collection of BDC drums"
