The UK Drum Show is thrilled to welcome Flint Percussion to our “Return to Music” when the UK Drum Show returns April 2 & 3rd 2022 at its new home at the ACC Liverpool.
“At Flint Percussion we have always believed that at the beating heart of every drum is the resonating chamber. The more this chamber can be allowed to breathe, the better the sound produced. In order for this to be achieved, the drum shell has to be free from fittings as much as possible”.
The black and chrome drum pictured above is the latest drum from Flint Percussion. It is the junior version of our Super XTS drum and is far and away the lightest of its type in the World Flint claim.
“In 2005 we designed the ‘Suspended Shell’ system of drum construction and tensioning.
This unique system allows for ‘through the shell’ tensioning and we can even apply this to High Tension drums.
This system means that our drums can be constructed with no external hardware such as lugs etc making contact with the shell, which would otherwise tend to dampen shell resonance”.

“Flint drums are different from all other drums in the way that they are constructed, tensioned and look. They are also the lightest in the World”.
“All Flint drums are hand-built at our base in England meaning that individual and personal care is taken with every drum. We pride ourselves on meeting all customisation demands whether this is for one drum or a full corps”.
