About Drum In Tensions

Drum In Tensions was developed by Timo Sutinen in 2008  as a drum and percussion repairs and restoration service for musicians, schools and music teachers.


Customer Service is our Goal


Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for teachers and players by providing a service that is both mobile, contactable and cost effective.


We have a small team with a big passion of providing a service that is reliable, professional and personal. We give your instruments the respect and TLC they deserve!



Servicing Schools & The Music Industry


In 2008 Timo's path crossed with a music teacher who said he was frustrated with trying to source parts and repairers for the broken instruments at his school and then having to take the instruments to the shop himself.


It was then that the idea struck Timo that music educators & musicians alike must also feel the same frustration. It was with this that 'Drum In Tensions' was founded! 


At Drum In Tensions we pride ourselves on being professional, reliable and on delivering a service that is unique and of the highest quality.
