About us

www.ecymbals.co.uk was first registered in 2002 by Julian Marsden (founder of www.drumteachers.co.uk).

The idea behind ecymbals was simple: "To ecommerce acoustic cymbals with traditional old fashioned retail ethics not normally associated with websites". After specialising in Paiste products since 1998 it was inevitable that Julian would become involved with Gongs and now specialises in all Paiste products.  Julian also has knowledge of Meinl Gongs as well.

Please ring Julian for an informal no obligation chat to check your cymbal, gong, stick, case or drum choice or you can visit our showroom to talk direct with our expert staff at 19 Cheapside, Liverpool, L2 2DY. Ecymbals offer the following services: Cymbal/Drum/Gong Sales (New/2nd Hand/Discontinued & Vintage), Drum Repairs, Expert Tuning Service, Drum Kit Hire and Drum Lessons in Liverpool.

Ecymbals specialises in Paiste Cymbals/Sounds & Gongs. Please visit www.paiste.com to hear sound samples and find out more about all the Paiste products. Ecymbals offers all Paiste products, please email via the contact button if you can not find the Paiste product you require.

As the first website in the UK dedicated to Paiste cymbals, Ecymbals soon became the website for all things Paiste. Ecymbals now specialise in offering advice/sales and shipping of all Paiste products world wide with customers ordering regularly from USA/Europe/UK and occasionally Brazil.

Through repeated visits to meet with the Paiste team @ the Frankfurt Musik Messe each year and trips to the Paiste Factory in Nottwill Switzerland as well as attending other Paiste Retailers and Vintage Drum Fairs, Julian (the guy who usually answers the phone) has built up a great knowledge of Paiste cymbals both new/2nd hand and vintage.

Ecymbals team have hundreds of contacts and can usually source any drum related product through our extensive portfolio of business cards.

Julian is also the Head Drum Teacher and General Manager @ ADC Drums www.adcdrums.co.uk Julian's studio is supported by Paiste Cymbals and both Julian and his students can regularly learn more about drum kit playing and listen to the great sound of Paiste.
