Heartbeat began in 2003 when it first started distributing drums and cymbals in Canada.
- In 2010, Heartbeat created its own custom cymbal line: Heartbeat Cymbals. Manufactured in Istanbul, Turkey, these hand crafted cymbals bring an amazing sound and visual beauty to the marketplace.
- Heartbeat combines traditional Turkish quality and construction with the current demand for high quality and individual sounding instruments, not just mass produced, machine made metal.
- In early 2014, Heartbeat introduced the Heartbeat custom cymbal and stick bag collection. Made in India to Heartbeat's specifications, each cymbal bag fits up to 24" diameter cymbals.
- Later that year, Heartbeat introduced the Heartbeat custom drumstick series. Made from high grade hickory, these limited production sticks are factory matched and balanced.
- 2015 brought the introduction of the first Heartbeat drumsets. Available in selected woods, sizes and finishes, these limited edition shell packs are a perfect match with other Heartbeat Percussion products!
- Praxis low volume practice cymbals from Heartbeat were introduced in 2019. Made in Asia, these cymbals are made from stainless steel and are much lower priced than our Turkish bronze models. Also introduced in 2019 was the expanded lineup of drum sticks featuring 27 available model in increased sizes and woods.
