Brand new UK music company Keo Percussion to be launched at Summer NAMM


Keo Percussion is a brand new musical instrument manufacturer with ambitious plans to make its mark on the world stage. The new company, based in Manchester UK, will officially launch its new range of handmade percussion instruments and accessories at the prestigious NAMM Summer trade show in Nashville, USA in July 2018.

Keo Percussion is the brainchild of master craftsman Keith Keough, the world-renowned drum builder at the heart of sister brand, the British Drum Co. Building on the rapid success of this respected UK manufacturing company, Keith has developed a range of percussion instruments and accessories that match the beautiful aesthetics and amazing sound qualities of his drums. The product range includes a selection of tambourines, cajons and shakers, handcrafted in Manchester from select tonewoods for superior sound and excellent playability. There is also a wide selection of percussion accessories designed to inspire creativity and expand the functionality of the drummer and percussionist’s toolkit.

The launch of Keo Percussion is focused around its first Signature Series product – the “Boomer” Practice Pad, designed for and in conjunction with the world-famous Iron Maiden drummer, Nicko McBrain. This exclusive and innovative “drummer’s essential” features a unique “hoop” facility to enable drummers to practise rimshots and cross-stick rhythms on a pad, opening up creative possibilities in a practice situation. Nicko is delighted with his signature practice pad, stating,

 “anything to do with drums has to be outstanding to have my name on it. I’m so proud to put my name on this fantastic piece of kit!”.

The Nicko “Boomer” McBrain Practice Pad from Keo Percussion will be launched in July 2018 and will be available in music stores worldwide and online soon after.
