The Imp is the smallest, but still just as cool drums of the British Drum Company from Manchester, UK. Or a killer drum as they like to call it. And they're right, the sound that this little sucker produces is warm, deep and the 16x10 bass drum matches the bigger sizes easily. And we should mention those bigger sizes because these drums are also available in standard sizes besides the tiny kit you see in the video below.
The Imp's shell is a combination of maple, tulip and birch, it has hand-cut 30-degree round-over bearing edges and the hardware is BDC's own stylish and Art Deco inspired Palladium hardware, that you can see in the image below the video. That Art Deco theme also returns in the tom brackets and the lugs.
Palladium has four types of lugs, and you can guess which ones are used on The Imp:
small single lug - for Legend toms
large single lug - for Legend bass drums
short double lug - for snares and Lounge toms
long double lugs - for deep Lounge toms and Lounge bass drums
A snare drum is not included with the kit, but you can get a 12x5.5 snare with the same specifications.
