Welcome to the official website of Flint Percussion.
Here is our story.
Flint® Percussion is a family business based in the North-West of England, established in 2005. Our company began as a result of our young daughter wishing to play the marching drum in a local pipe band, but at only 10 years of age it was immediately apparent that the standard marching drum would be too heavy for her to carry and play. Coming from an engineering background, we began to look for ways to redesign these drums to reduce weight without impacting sound and material quality.
After several years of research and development, we invented the Suspended ShellTM system, where only the drum skins are in contact with the shell and tension is achieved on both skins through the shell itself via a surrounding cage. This resulted in the lightest high-tension marching snare drum ever made. We then went on to produce other drums using the same Suspended ShellTM system, offering a full range of ultra-lightweight marching drums.
Today, we supply these lightweight drums to clients around the world, including countries in North America, Oceania, Europe and the Middle East. We are experts in instrument manufacture and delivery, and apply this experience to ensure all musical instruments we produce are of the highest quality upon arrival with our clients.
