British Drum Co. Bluebird 14” x 6” Snare Drum
A classic in every sense, Bluebird’s 14” x 6” chrome over brass shell forms a foundation to the resonant character of this drum, with a stylish double bead to focus the sound.
At the heart of your kit you need a snare drum you can depend on, an instrument that responds to every nuance of your playing, whatever your style. Bluebird is the snare drum that sings, from a whisper to a scream, giving you the freedom to express your music the way you intended. From the acoustic demands of a club gig to the amplified roar of the concert stage, Bluebird will always respond to your playing style.
A classic in every sense, Bluebird’s 14” x 6” chrome over brass shell forms a foundation to the resonant character of this drum, with a stylish double bead to focus the sound. The art-deco inspired Palladium hardware is elegance defined, but is also designed to optimise the connection between the shell and the heads, creating a snare sound that is inherently more musical than metallic.
The exacting build quality of Bluebird delivers superb sensitivity across the entire surface of the batter head, meaning sticking will be precise and crisp, rimshots will be deep and defined, side-sticking will be tight and cutting. This level of sensitivity is highlighted when played to extremes - delicate brushwork is rich and expressive, whilst playing hard reveals the confidence of this drum.
Clear, defined, articulate rolls cut through at every level. This drum responds easily to every demand you make - no need to labour your playing as Bluebird cuts through without you ever breaking a sweat.
All British Drum Co. lugs contain ThreadGrip technology. The plastic retainer inside the lug that normally 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 skin under tension far more reliably for longer periods of time, making your drums sound amazing all the time!
All British Drum Co. drums feature bespoke laser-engraved acrylic interior plates.
