Oral History Information
Neil Grover was playing percussion in the Boston Symphony Orchestra when he discovered a bright and unique triangle. When he bought a new triangle he realized it was nothing like that of the symphony and thus started a quest to find, produce and play the perfect triangle. Along the way, quite by accident, he was being asked by fellow musicians to make them one of his triangles. By 1979, Neil formed the Grover Pro Percussion Company and soon expanded his product line beyond the triangle, while keeping a focus on creating instruments with high quality sounds. Neil has also been focused on music education, writing articles and providing sessions for players at all levels, to motivate and inspire their love of music making, a passion near and dear to Neil’s heart.
