About Us

A passion for percussion

Percussion Plus is a leading supplier of high-quality handmade percussion instruments for the UK and export markets. The company was established in 1987 in Market Harborough and continues to manufacture a number of products in our Leicestershire workshop. Over the last 30 years, the brand has earned a reputation for reliability and exceptionally good value for money. We pride ourselves on our high musical standards too, insisting upon the best possible tone and most accurate tuning possible for every instrument we manufacture.

We’re particularly proud of our popularity in the education sector and have a passion for designing instruments for young musicians. Our distinctive Classic red box xylophones and glockenspiels have become essential purchases for schools around the world, and our Colour and Play series of primary percussion and Wak-a-tubes are now a staple in primary schools across the UK and further afield.

But that’s just the beginning! Our vast inventory includes top quality percussion instruments of all shapes and sizes, for players of all ages and standards. In March 2017 Percussion Plus was bought by Frederick Hyde Ltd owners of Chamberlain Music, Octopus Ukuleles, Percussion Workshop and Tom & Will brands.

We are always pleased to hear from schools and teachers as well as music education suppliers and distributors in the UK and around the world.
