Bell Percussion

Bell Percussion are the official distributor of Seán Hooper Mallets. They were founded as a rental business in 1990 and since then have grown to become one of the World's leading percussion hire and retail companies. If you are a retailer interested in stocking my mallets, get in touch with the guys at Bell and they'll be only too happy to assist.

Truro School of Samba

Although my background in percussion is orchestral, my passion is samba percussion and dance. If you’re in Cornwall,  come along to one of our plays. Or, if you already play or would like to have a go at Samba come along to one of our rehearsals.

Three Rivers Furniture

Three Rivers furniture is an independent Furniture store in Truro, Cornwall, run by two generations of the Hurst family. Matthew Hurst, the founder, is a friend of mine and was one of my co – founders of Truro School of Samba. If you’re in Cornwall it’s well worth a visit.  Not just furniture – the store sells a wide range of Lighting, prints, etc. produced by local artists – a perfect souvenir of your visit.

Emma Skilton

If you’re ever in Cornwall [visiting Truro school of Samba?] and have an interest in health and beauty, see my friend Emma. She’s a co-founder of Truro School of Samba and our Artistic Director – there are some great photos of her and our other dancers on the Truro School of Samba website. Emma is a specialist supplier of Neal’s Yard Certified Organic health and beauty products.

HD Words

The product descriptions and some other content on this website have been written by Hannah Danson, of HD Words, a copywriter and editor based in Cornwall.  The remaining content was initially written by Sean and ‘translated’ (his words) by Hannah, to make good web content. As a musician herself, she was able to appreciate the nuances required describing the different sticks. Many of Hannah’s clients are small businesses in Cornwall, for whom she writes blogs, websites, product descriptions and newsletters.
