Meinl, D'Addario UK End Distribution Agreement

After four years, D'Addario UK and Meinl have mutually agreed that D'Addario will no longer represent Meinl cymbals and percussion in the UK from April 1, 2018.

"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," said Simon Turnbull, managing director of D'Addario Europe. "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 honored to have been associated with the brand."

"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," said Udo Heubeck, general manager of Meinl Cymbals and Percussion. "We wish them all the very best for their future business."

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