The Merlin snare range from the British Drum Company Includes some genuinly fantastic looking and sounding pieces. With over twenty years expertise in drum design and manufacture, they've created one of the most versatile wooden snare drums on the market today
Solid, hand made and stylish
Perfectly hand crafted at the BDC's Cheshire workshop, craftsmen have taken two classic and great sounding woods and blended them to present a hefty 20ply, 10.5mm thick shell struck from a secret recipe of maple and birch.
Great tone from custom-made hardware
The Merlin shell has a unique bearing edge that starts with an outer 30 degree round over edge which continues rounded over the top peak of the edge and flows into a standard 45 degree inner edge. This unique edge gives better head to shell contact and allows the snare to tune high without choking or can be tuned down very low for a much fatter, deeper tone. The Merlin is then beautifully decorated with solid brass, heavy duty tube lugs and comes as standard with duel ended adjustable LST strainer and matching butt plate.
