Natal Drums was established in London in 1965 and focused primarily on congas and bongos. Around the same time, Jim Marshall, a drummer and also the founder of Marshall Amplification, owned a drum shop where he sold Natal percussion. In 2011, Marshall purchased Natal and began manufacturing a range of drums and drumsets in addition to percussion. Kits are currently available in ash, birch, bubinga, and maple, with matching snares, as well as in a variety of metal options.
