British Drum Co Archer 14″ x 6″ Snare Drum is handcrafted entirely from English Yew, a rare and sumptuous hardwood that generates a rich, warm tone with fast attack. Yew was traditionally the preferred timber of the longbows favoured by medieval English archers. Its durable flexibility tempered with robust strength offered supreme power and reliability – qualities that are incorporated into this drum. The Archer is a 14” x 6”, 10-ply shell with 30º round-over bearing edges, constructed using British Drum Co’s 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 ‘B’ badge embellished with green sycamore in recognition of the company’s 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.

The main features include:

  • 10-ply English Yew shell with high-gloss lacquered Fiddleback Sycamore finish
  • 30-degree round-over bearing edge
