Background

Organisers of The UK Drum Show are pleased to announce Bell Music will join a plethora of exhibitors this September at the ACC Liverpool, with their return to business in June 2022.

Bell Music formerly known as Bell Percussion was founded in 1989 as a London based percussion hire company. Over the past two decades, Bell diversified to accommodate the music industry requirements for retail, transport, studios, teaching and repairs. From beginners to seasoned professionals, Bell has always provided expert knowledge along with competitive prices for every percussive need. The company thrived based on the professional quality of its hire instruments and with an ‘anything is possible’ mentality that remains to this day. However, due to the devastating effect of the pandemic on the music industry, Bell was forced to close its doors in December 2020. Happily though, in June 2022, Bell reopened the hire department in partnership with the London Symphony Orchestra and moved to the LSO warehouse in Tottenham. The hire department is now trading under the management of Milene Letertre in addition to the Bell Music Academy based in Chiswick, west London.

To this day, Bell remains the largest drum and percussion hire company in the UK with a skilled and highly knowledgeable team of drummers and percussionists. However, they are not only a classical and drum session supplier, but also provide the wild and various instruments and equipment for many of the film soundtracks recorded in the UK such as the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Harry Potter films recorded at Abbey Road and Air Studios. They also supply backline, staging and recently invested in their fleet of orchestral furniture.

Some of their clients are: London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Proms, BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, McFly, Coldplay, Ellie Goulding, Abbey Road Studios, Air Studio, London Philharmonic Orchestra,… to name a few.
