The Lounge drum set is overtly retro in its design with thin 9ply, 5mm mahogany and birch shells which are then complemented with birch 3ply 1.5mm reinforcement rings. The combination of this perfectly blended shell gives life to a clean yet powerful tone, while the mahogany lends a darker, deeper and softer balance to the overall sound of these drums, aided by a rounded bearing edge.
All Lounge Series drums are fitted with British Drum Companies Beaver Tail inspired low mass lugs which are center mounted on the shell. These lugs finalize the vintage feel and style and further enhance the shells’ natural resonance.
The kit is then beautifully finished with trademarked mahogany and birch bass drum hoops, which are produced from the same mahogany and birch as the Legend Series drums.

Hand made in BDC's Cheshire workshop by a team of skilled craftsmen, the Lounge is available in six natural veneer finishes. Dorchester Blue, Buckingham Scarlett, Windsor Dark, Carnaby Rock, Wardour Pommele and The Executive.
A few words from The British Drum Company
"It was simple really," says Al Murray as he fills us in on the company's birth. "I had got to know Keith during his time at Premier, he built me an astonishing drum kit, and so when that came to an end it seemed like the logical thing to do, to go into business together. Someone like Keith has to be making drums!. I’m very lucky to have met some brilliant people in the world of drums, thanks to the Pub Landlord, and now it’s great to have the chance to roll my sleeves up and get properly involved: in lots of ways I feel it’s our duty to quality.”
Kasabian drummer Matthews, who becomes the company's first high-profile endorser, says: "I am excited to be part of this amazing new project. A new company that not only embraces the held traditions of drum design, but to inspire and further the development of this wonderful instrument. To be part of that process is such a privilege, and to do it with this team is an honor."
Keough adds: "I have never felt so positive about a team of people or drum brand! The passion, drive and commitment for this new venture will be apparent throughout our new and exciting range of drums."
