I set up AB Percussion early in 2010, building in my experience as a timpanist and percussionist dating back some 35 years.  During that time I have (of course!) built up my own collection of instruments from both mainstream and less familiar sources.  In particular, several visits to the annual Frankfurt Musik Messe instrument fair and browsing the catalogues of a number of American percussion shops opened my eyes to the extraordinary range and quality of instruments and accessories in production.  Many of these do not have an outlet or representation in the UK.  So AB Percussion sets out to make these items available to UK percussionists (though if anyone else is interested, we'd be delighted!)
