British Drum Co. are driven by the passion to create the finest drums and percussion instruments for musicians who recognise and value the highest of standards.

Founded in 2015 by leading drum designer Keith Keough and comedian Al Murray, the company’s philosophy is based on a rich heritage of British drum-building craftsmanship, embracing the time-served techniques and traditions that are historically acknowledged within the drumming industry while putting innovation at its heart.

The highest quality timbers are selected before handcrafting the shells using BDC's cold press moulding process, to maintain the sonic integrity of the wood, alongside gracing each drum with the Palladium hardware and iconic B badge.

Every drum that leaves the Britsh Drum Co. factory is designed & developed with high attention to detail so that drummers look and feel every bit as good as they sound.

“The shells are flawless resulting in a versatile professional sound.” - Rhythm Magazine.
