How it all started! I started drumming at a young age being taught the basics by my grandfather in the early days on an old snare drum. I progressed to having more lessons on full drum kits and also attended lessons on the reading of drum notation.

I embarked on teaching the drums in 1996, working part time in the evenings and weekends. In 2004 I went into full time teaching and the name Drum Mechanics was formed, by me Chris Harvey. Drum Mechanics was initially formed as a mobile teaching /drum kit tuning service, covering a wide area of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire to teach the Drums in schools and homes.

In October 2006 I found a disused unit on Pershore trading estate. The unit is situated under the old water tower, built in 1939 as part of the old Pershore air base, today it is used as a fire hydrant for the fire brigade. Straightaway I got to work creating the studios for teaching, band practice space and a workshop for instrument repairs. Tower Studios the home of Drum Mechanics was born. Incorporating a rehearsal service and recording facilities, with 5 band practice studios, all at competitive prices. 

In February 2010 Tower Studios became an official grade/exam centre for worldwide leading exam RSL Awards, Rockschool syllabus.  

On site sales offer excellent deals on Evans, Promark, Daddario etc. Plus free tea and coffee in a relaxed and chilled environment.
