The Aviator has landed! British Drum Co’s first ever aluminium snare drum and it’s a stunner! Influenced by the graceful lines and gleaming metal profiles of the classic craft of aviation history, they’ve developed a snare drum to inspire your playing to stratospheric heights.

This stylish, elegant drum delivers a dry, controlled sound with a sensitive response over a wide dynamic range. Aviator inspires you to articulate your sticking from graceful ghost notes to a full-throated roaring backbeat. This drum offers you the full range of crisp, clean sounds to suit all types of playing.

Crafted from a seamless 1.2mm solid aluminium shell, Aviator looks stunning with its sophisticated anodised surface, beautifully complemented by BDC’s stylish Palladium hardware. The cool, understated aesthetic of Aviator is highlighted by the subtle inverted central bead, presenting a stunning shadow line around the shell. The cosmetic appeal of Aviator is delicately enhanced by an element of warmth courtesy of the Cherry veneer insert integrated within the iconic British Drum Co. badge.

Aviator is, in every sense, a classically beautiful snare drum.​
