Company Profile

Mushroom Covers was established in 1988 by a professional timpanist / percussionist as an answer to the, then, lack of keenly–priced yet high quality covers for timpani and percussion instruments.

Drawing on his own and other’s experience, a range of covers and bags has now been designed and manufactured to a high degree of quality.

From those early days Mushroom has built itself a reputation in the UK as the leading manufacturer of timpani and percussion instrument covers. It now boasts many leading symphony, chamber, ballet and opera orchestras as its customers. Many top class schools, colleges and other educational establishments regard Mushroom as their primary supplier of percussion instrument covers.

The Mushroom brand recently transferred to a new business called Johns and Mushroom Percussion Ltd. (JaM Percussion) Our covers remain of the highest possible quality yet are priced at very competitive prices. Although our market is still a niche one concentrating on covering large percussion instruments, we aim to broaden our customer base through the new business.
