Welcome to Brandenburg Music, Canada’s Drum and Percussion Source!

Founded in 1994 by Edmonton percussionist Trevor Brandenburg, Brandenburg Music has been a staple of the Edmonton music scene for almost 30 years!

In 2013 the business was taken over by Nathan Ouellette, another Edmonton based percussionist.

In 2022 the business was taken over by Trevor and Nathan's former drum teacher, Brian Thurgood. Together with Carol, the new owners have over 70 years of experience in the music business.

Our goal is to provide our customers with the very best knowledge and service available. We specialize in a wide array of percussion instruments such as drum sets, orchestral percussion, hand drums, school instruments & many types of unique and exotic percussion. We also rent instruments and provide repair and maintenance for your entire percussion section onsite or at your school. Effective Jan. 1, 2024 we will assume ownership of Handbells Etc. and will supply handbell accessories, music, and provide bell repair and polishing service as well.

All of our staff are professional musicians with years of experience in the music industry. Whether you are looking for your very first drum set, or you are a veteran percussionist looking for just the right sound, we can help you find what you’re looking for.

Let us share our knowledge and passion with you!
