After four years, D’Addario UK and Meinl have mutually agreed that D’Addario will no longer represent Meinl cymbals and percussion in the UK from April 1st, 2018.

In a statement, Simon Turnbull, managing director of D’Addario Europe said: “Until April, we will continue to represent the brand and collaborate with our colleagues at Meinl to ensure a smooth transition; resulting in no supply disruption or customer service issues. As custodians of the Meinl brand in the UK for over four years we are proud of our achievement of having doubled sales in that period. Meinl, like D’Addario, makes products of exceptional quality so we are honoured to have been associated with the brand.”

Udo Heubeck, General Manager of Meinl Cymbals and Percussion added: “We would like to express our sincere thanks to the entire D’Addario UK team for all of their support and effort in promoting the Meinl brand and products over the last four years. We wish them all the very best for their future business.”

UK Meinl dealers have been advised to contact their sales representative with any specific questions. All UK Meinl dealers will be contacted before April 1st with details on the future arrangements and contacts for Meinl distribution in the UK.
