In a move that will introduce a popular North American brand into the UK for the first time, LARK Distribution will debut Headhunters Sticks and Creations at The UK Drum Show 2019 in Manchester across the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of September.
Already available in markets including such majors as Germany, China and Japan, Headhunters’ entry into the UK will, said Lark director Jay Lewington, “be welcomed in a big way by drummers and percussionists who appreciate not only the very finest designs and production values in sticks, brushes, rods, bundles, mallets and other implements, but also a selection of truly innovative designs.”
Continued Lewington: “Headhunters is a great example of LARK pursuing its mission to bring premium and innovative custom and boutique percussion instruments and brands into the UK. It’s a brand we first experienced at the NAMM Show, where their booth was constantly full of players – including a lot of major names – who loved the Groove Grip drum sticks and the wildly creative Creations, which is a range of seriously unique brushes, beaters, rods, and…well, whatever chief Headhunter Dave Rundle’s imagination comes up with.”
“Though we look forward to stocking an extensive range of inventory, our initial focus will be on Seven Serious Sticks and Seven Serious Creations, promotions that focus on the seven current best-selling models of each range based on international sales.”
Added chief Headhunter Dave Rundle: “LARK might be new, but Jay Lewington’s reputation as one of the best in the business was the magnet for us. We want people with whom we can collaborate. Jay is someone with deep industry knowledge, is loved and respected by those who know best, is someone who is easy to communicate with, and like Headhunters he wants to make a difference. Jay Lewington is exactly what the industry needs, and he and his new company LARK Distribution are who we want representing the Headhunters brand in the UK.”
