Who We Are

Universal proudly stocks products from virtually every major percussion brand, and we want to be your supplier for these great items.

When it comes to top-quality stands and pedals, our catalog gives you the choice of great professional-level gear from DW, Tama, and Yamaha.

We stock D’Addario’s full line of H.Q. Pads and SoundOffs, Puresound wire snares, Evans Drum heads, and Pro-Mark drumsticks. And we carry one of the largest inventories of Remo products .in the country, including drum set heads, marching heads, timpani heads, world percussion instruments, and specialty percussion for kids.

We also stock great percussion instruments and accessories from Black Swamp Percussion and Danmar; sticks and mallets from Innovative Percussion and Mike Balter, shells and bass drum hoops from Keller; and cymbal cleaner from Groove Juice. We’ve got pedals, throw-offs, and drum polish from Trick; chimes from Treeworks; sonic enhancers for bass drums from KickPort; a assortment of drum books and videos—and more.

But we don’t sell ONLY name-brand, high-end products. Drummers—and dreamers—come in all ages and all budget levels. With that in mind, we stock percussion items that will appeal to every buyer, at prices to suit every budget. Check out our new Latin instruments, marching drums, padded gear bags, toy percussion, and drumsticks—all under the Universal Percussion brand—along with the new 457 line of entry-level bronze cymbals from Wuhan, Cannon hardware and replacement parts, and the complete range of Attack drumheads.

Universal Percussion is more than America’s largest percussion distributor. It’s a business that truly understands drums, drummers, and drum retailers. That’s because it’s a business run by people who are drummers, and who have been drum retailers.
