Cherisse comments:

I absolutely love my BDC drums, they have a beautiful tone to them and the craftsmanship is superb. The sound of my BDC kit really resonates with me and since I’ve been playing it, it’s really elevated my performance. My favourite piece of the kit is my 14 x 6.5” aluminium snare – it has a great snap but with a nice depth of sound to it.
