Meinl PERCUSSION ... is family!


The world of percussion is huge and diverse. Percussion cannot be broken down to one genre or one type of person: It's more.

That's why MEINL Percussion has made it its business to offer a huge range of products that meets almost every need, while maintaining the highest standards of quality and sustainability.

But a wide variety of instruments is just one aspect, MEINL Percussion was able to celebrate the really big success through many enthusiastic people: product developers, marketing specialists, sales experts, endorsers, etc. We are grateful to every single one of them.

Quality ...

Since our formation, our main objective has been to offer percussion instruments which comply with the highest quality levels regarding manufacturing and materials used. Only by committing to the highest standards, we can guarantee top quality instruments, the maximum of playing comfort, the best possible sounds, and therefore long lasting customer fulfillment.

... we care for it

The traditional plantation of Siam Oak (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.) meets all ecological requirements. Same counts for the plantation grown Mahogany Wood from Indonesia, which we use for our Original African Style Rope Tuned Wood Djembes. In a natural evolution, new trees are planted and the older ones, which have ceased to provide latex, are harvested. In this way, plenty of raw material is available and the valuablerain forest eco-system is preserved.


Meinl company is a family-owned manufacturer and distributor of musical instruments based in Gutenstetten, Germany. The brand portfolio of Meinl comprises Meinl Cymbals, Meinl Percussion, Nino Percussion, Meinl Sonic Energy, Meinl Viva Rhythm, Meinl Stick & Brush and Ortega Guitars.
