Overview

The British Drum Co. Archer snare drum is 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 for longbows used by medieval English archers due to its durability, flexibility and strength. By using this uncommon wood, British Drum Co. endeavored to bring those same qualities to the Archer drum.

Handcrafted in the UK, the 14x6" Archer snare drum is made from a 10-ply shell with 30º round-over bearing edges. The plies are constructed using a cold-press molding 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 the drum's English heritage.

Due to the yew wood, 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 exotic wood means it also makes a timeless collector's item.
