The Super 7 from British Drum Company is something really quite special. The inner shell is handcrafted from Purpleheart veneers with an outer ply finished in high-gloss lacquered Fiddleback Sycamore. The 13” x 7” size offers a higher pitch but still with plenty of “body”. The four vents have been added to aid sensitivity and increas the volume – this is a loud drum!
Hand built in the UK, the Super 7 is a 13” x 7”, 10-ply shell with 45º bearing edges, constructed using BDC’s cold press moulding process to create a shell with exceptional structural and tonal integrity.
The Super 7 is aimed to be extremely versatile, offering a wide range of tones, from bright, cutting backbeats, through to warm and subtle delicate grace notes. Said to be perfect for the studio, but equally at home performing on stage, the Super 7 looks as good as it sounds
