Classically designed snare drum with bright, clear articulation.

The Aviator Snare is the first ever aluminum snare drum from the British Drum Co. Influenced by the graceful lines and gleaming metal profiles of the classic craft of aviation history, the Aviator Snare Drum was developed to inspire your playing to stratospheric heights. This stylish, elegant snare drum delivers a dry, controlled sound with a sensitive response over a wide dynamic range and inspires you to articulate your sticking from graceful ghost notes to a full-throated roaring backbeat. Crafted from a seamless 1.2mm solid aluminum shell, Aviator looks stunning with its sophisticated anodized surface, beautifully complemented by 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.
