Ellie is a session drummer based in London, playing with Caity Baser, Michael Aldag and Maggie Lindemann.

“Every BDC kit that I’ve seen, played and heard has been flawless. However, visiting the factory took me from loving BDC drums to ADORING BDC drums I was blown away by the craftsmanship and genuine passion that goes into the production of BDC drums. I left and told everyone I knew, drummers and non-drummers that they HAD to just see the workmanship and skill that goes into making these drums. The experience was a drummer’s version of being in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! Just seeing the precision alongside the love and care that goes into what they do really blew me away.

The response and tone of each drum just makes me fall in love with playing all over again.  What makes it even better is that the BDC team are such a friendly and helpful bunch that made me feel as if anything I need is possible. They perfectly captured the colour of my kit, one that I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl.

In fact everything about this kit is what I had envisioned my “perfect” drum kit would look like since I was a little girl. It’s bold, it’s fun and it’s beautiful. I’ve spent years googling drum kits in every possible colour, from searching ‘seafoam green’ to ‘tiffany blue’ trying to find the exact colour I loved but nothing hit the mark quite like the team at BDC have done with this kit.

I use the BDC Bluebird snare drum.  When I put the Bluebird into a higher tuning, it was a no brainer for me. The response and the crisp attack just made me want to take it out on a gig, instantly! Not to mention and the elegance of the art deco inspired lugs/snare strainer and how stunning the chrome finish looked (and how it will reflect the colour of the rest of my kit!)"

"Thank you so much to all the team at BDC that have been so welcoming. I’m absolutely over the moon and feel honoured to play such amazing drums! I feel really proud to represent a company that creates such incredible drums and loves them as much as the drummers do.”
