We are very proud to confirm that we are now UK distributors for Sakae Drums. Sakae Rhythm was the Japanese manufacturer and designer for a major multi-product corporation who decided to move production to China. We have gone in the opposite direction, recognising the tradition, quality and players' desire to play the instruments they know so well, and the sound that has made so many hit records.

The kits we launched at the London Drum Show in the UK, at the same time as the showing at MesseChina. Following the initial launch, we also spent time in the factory in Japan. The list of players who have been through the factory and made their own snare is truly awesome.

So we now distribute and hold stock of the following brands:

•    Dream Cymbals
•    Sakae Drums
•    J.Leiva Percussion
•    Kambala Percussion
•    Contemporânea Percussion
•    Bucara Percussion
•    Bucara Festival Percussion
•    Rhythm Carnival (by Remo)
•    Session Series Bodhráns
•    Dave Shaw (trad. woodwind)

plus other stock held from:

•    Waltons
•    Dixon whistles
•    Clarkes
•    Taigh na Teud
•    DMP Publications
•    Vic Firth sticks
•    Hardcase

We still work with makers, musicians, teachers, workshop specialists, African and Samba drumming groups, organising bodies and educational distributors in Britain, Ireland and around the world. We gather traditional instruments from Ivory Coast, Ghana, Brazil, Ireland, USA and Pakistan. We work closely with our manufacturers to provide quality musical instruments representing the spirit of the cultures from which they come.

We are a specialist team, who work together with the aim of providing an informed, efficient service to our trade customers. All of the marketing team is currently involved in music making at various levels and we all have a passion for our art, both in rock & pop as well as world and traditional music.
