Timp Overhaul

Just wondered if anyone can recommend a company who will overhaul a set of timps?? We have a set of 3 Premiere copper bowled timps that are now 6 years old and need an overhaul. I would attempt it myself but wouldn't know where to start!!! Any help gratefully received.


Mods: If this post is in the wrong place, apologies and please move it.

I'd try either:

JaM Percussion in Liverpool on 0151 709 9709, or try a chap called Dave Osland on 07774 299399. Dave overhauled all my drums earlier this year, and did a fantastic job. However, he lives on the south coast. I guess the only real problem is your location! Though I'm sure Dave would give you the pointers to sorting out the drums yourself.

Good luck.

If you're still looking to have your timps done Arthur Suttle of Tuned Percussion near Stevenage is your man. He is incredible and I have taken both Travelsphere's and Leyland's timp there in the past and they have come back better than new.

I also know that Ray Payne does overhauls.

Hope that helps.

Tuned Percussion was actually the company recommended to me by the Premiere rep. Unfortunately, he didn't have a phone number and I haven't been able to find it either. If you have it, please let me know.

Many thanks

Tuned percussion- the name doesnt exactly suggest specialist timp overhaulers. i'd go to Graham Johns at jam percussion, you already have his number.

Arthur Suttle is the best. He sorts out all the big Orchestras (LSO, Royal Phil, BBC ect.)

Granted - He sorted out all the gear when I was at college. Though I'll think you'll find he's called Arthur Soothill!..............

...............Any chance of a number though?

No, it doesn't suggest specialist timp overhaulers but, they are the people recommended by the Premiere rep so I'll give them a go first if only I can find the number!!!! Even had a look for a website and can't find one.
