HAND CRAFTED IN THE UK 

Handcrafted in the UK, Talisman is seamlessly spun from British Steel. The characteristic ridges undulating across the outer surface of the 14” x 6.5” shell reveal the artisan’s craft in a signature finish, unique to every single drum. Cool and visually understated, Talisman does not hold back when played. 

Loud, vibrant and full of tone, the seamless steel shell really sings. Designed by one of the world’s greatest metal drummers, Talisman is not a snare drum to be ignored.

NICKO McBRAIN'S TALISMAN

SIGNATURE SNARE DRUM

Talisman - the steel snare drum Nicko McBrain has been waiting for all his life.

Talisman has been a labour of love for Nicko. Deeply involved in the design and development of this signature snare drum, Nicko’s passion for engineering excellence played a significant role in bringing Talisman to life.

Nicko McBrain waited a lifetime to play the Talisman snare drum.

You can share that dream and make it your reality right now.

All British Drum Co. lugs contain ThreadGrip technology.  

The plastic retainer inside the lug that holds the ferrule nut in place has been deliberately under-sized, allowing the tension rod to "bite" into the plastic and provide a tighter grip in the lug. 

The result is a drum that will hold the drum head under tension far more reliably for longer periods of time, keeping your drums in tune longer so they sound amazing all the time!
