British Drum Company "The Portsmouth" DCP 10th Anniversary Snare Drum 14x7


The Portsmouth Limited Edition snare drum is something very special indeed. Created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Drum Center of Portsmouth, this spectacular snare drum is inspired by the UK city of Portsmouth. This is the home of the British Navy’s Royal Marines, who have selected the British Drum Co. to build their new marching drums. Crafted from English Fumed Brown Oak, these drums and their home inspired us to create a namesake for our friends over in New Hampshire.

Handcrafted in the UK, the Portsmouth is a 14” x 7”, 10-ply shell with 45° round-over bearing edges, constructed using our unique cold press moulding process to create a shell with exceptional structural and tonal integrity. The Portsmouth is a sensational drum emblazoned with a wealth of desirable features including vintage style mini-claws, gold- plated tension rods, a bespoke badge identifying the edition number and beautifully crafted, hand-cut pinstripes of the English Fumed Brown Oak and English Pipped Oak veneers, which also feature on the contrasting reinforcement rings.

The Portsmouth sounds deep and rich but is also crisp and responsive across a wide tension range. It has an intimacy when played softly but really lets its voice be heard when you play hard - this drum sings out loud! The Portsmouth snare drum oozes desirability. It is a fantastic example of drum-making craftsmanship and is a worthy instrument to celebrate DCP’s first decade.
