British Drum Co. BDC Super 7 Snare Drum


At last, the long awaited 13” x 7” snare drum from the British Drum Co. - the Super 7! This is the snare drum everyone has been asking for.


The Super 7 really is quite a special drum. The inner shell is handcrafted from sumptuous Purpleheart veneers with an outer finished in high-gloss lacquered Fiddleback Sycamore. The 13” x 7” size offers drummers a higher pitch without sacrificing the “body” of the drum’s tone. The inclusion of no less than four vents adds sensitivity and increases the volume - this is a loud drum!


Handbuilt in the UK, the Super 7 is a 13” x 7”, 10-ply shell with 45º bearing edges, constructed using our unique cold press moulding process to create a shell with exceptional structural and tonal integrity. The Super 7 is a stunning snare drum that displays a bespoke designed namebadge accented with Purpleheart veneer, complementing the matching veneer featured in the B badge.


The Super 7 is extremely versatile, offering a wide range of playable tones, from bright, cutting backbeats, through to warm and subtle delicate grace notes. Perfect for the studio, but equally at home performing on stage, the Super 7 is a very special snare drum that looks as good as it sounds - both on the inside as well as the outside. Try the new Super 7 for yourself - we’re sure you will be as happy with the results as we are!
