Anglia Drum Centre was established in 2002, by Jason Keyte. Jason is a very experienced professional drummer following in his father’s footsteps. He started his drum shop experience in 1985, at the age of 15; working for the major drum retailer in Birmingham on Saturdays.
After leaving school, becoming very knowledgeable on drums, drum companies, repairs, vintage drum history and all aspects of the drum business, he soon rose to a management position.
After eight years service Jason pursued his professional playing career for three years only to then be head hunted by another major music retailer in Birmingham to run and re-organise their drums department. Within three years it became one of the major drum retailers in the country. Jason was then approached to teach drums for Birmingham City Schools. During this time he continued to work across the country as a pro drummer. After two years finding himself playing more and more in East Anglia, Jason left teaching and based himself in Norfolk.
Quickly realising the lack of a totally dedicated Pro drum shop on the East Coast, Jason made the decision to establish Anglia Drum Centre as the major drum retailer in East Anglia, making his many years experience and knowledge available once more to drummers across the country.
