British Drum Company Archer Snare Drum 14x6


Meet the Archer, a spectacular new snare drum from the British Drum Co.

The Archer really is quite a special drum. Handcrafted entirely from English Yew, a rare and sumptuous hardwood that generates a rich, warm tone with fast attack. Traditionally, Yew was the preferred timber of the longbows favoured by medieval English archers. Its durable flexibility tempered with robust strength offered supreme power and reliability - qualities which we endeavoured to incorporate into the Archer.

Handcrafted in the UK, the Archer is a 14” x 6”, 10-ply shell with 30º round-over bearing edges, constructed using our unique cold press moulding process to create a shell with exceptional structural and tonal integrity. The Archer is a breathtaking drum with a variety of eye-catching features including vintage style mini-claws, gold-plated tension rods and a beautiful golden badge embellished with green sycamore in recognition of our English heritage.

The Archer is capable of a wide range of complex tones, from a warm, Maple-like clarity right through to a lively and potent brightness. With an understated confidence and stylistic flexibility, the Archer will be at home in a wide variety of musical situations.

The Archer is a unique snare drum that is not only visually stunning with awesome tones, it will quickly earn it’s place as a bona fide classic collector’s snare drum.
