Founded in 2008 by professional freelance percussionists Joseph Tompkins and Jeffrey Irving, New York Percussion Service was established with the idea in mind that you can only sound as good as the instruments you play.

Regularly playing in different halls, with different ensembles, with different conductors and often having limited rehearsal time requires constant adjustment.  If your instruments are unknown and prove to be inadequate on any level, this task becomes much more difficult.  Furthermore, it is usually impossible for a listener, whether it be a conductor, contractor, audience member or critic, to separate your playing from the quality of your instruments. That is why we seek to provide the highest quality instruments available and to keep them impeccably maintained.  That way, you can focus on your playing rather than your gear.
