The Archer snare is as unique as its name suggests. Combining a traditional look with a powerful, layered sound – this drum is guaranteed to be the next perfect addition to your percussion arsenal.
This snare drum takes its inspiration from the iconic longbow used by English archers during the middle ages. Just like those weapons, the Archer is handcrafted in the UK from a rare English yew; a hardwood that is known for its fast attack and warm, thick tones. It is also characterised by a durability and rugged nature that ensures it is reliable, powerful and flexible enough to be applied to a multitude of contrasting genres and styles.
A 10-ply shell construction is produced using the British Drum Co. cold-press moulding process (which ensures the natural sonic qualities of each wood reaches its optimum potential). This is then partnered with 30° round-over bearing edges, with the end result being a shell that maintains a rugged build and supreme sound. The drum is highlighted further with vintage influenced mini claws and a golden badge encasing some green sycamore. This harks back nicely to the brands proud English heritage.
An Archer snare is as versatile as you want it to be. Its minimal look definitely shouldn’t be underestimated. The drum projects sound with great complexity, from warm clear tones, right on through to crisp and bright sonics. Its these great dynamics that allow it to comfortably slot into just about any kind of mix.
