In 2007, a small group of high-profile artists and an experienced sales professional teamed up to face the challenge of constant change in the recording market and to develop new concepts.

On 1 January 2008, tonpool Medien GmbH was founded in Burgwedel near Hanover in northern Germany.

Kurt Erping as Managing Director & his now 13-member team form a quick-to-handle sales unit that is optimally matched to the prevailing market conditions at all times.

The official chart-based market shares of tonpool Medien GmbH have been proving that this concept has worked.

The physical sales network has since been expanded throughout Europe, so that today publicity in Germany and abroad can be equally served.

tonpool Medien GmbH can also guarantee maximum coverage across Europe in the steadily growing digital market via the tonpool Digital department.

The tonpool anti-piracy service searches (usually manually) daily the Internet for copyright infringements. The identified video links / DDLs are reported to the respective portals or hosts, with a request for immediate deletion.

Since 2014 tonpool Medien GmbH has been operating as an online shop operator.

The E-Commerce department takes care of the complete care and handling of the online shops including warehousing, shipping, returns and customer service. As part of the full-service offering, the e-commerce team also handles the requirements and tasks in the development, production and purchase of the merchandise offered in the online shops and touring companies.

This full service is an interesting alternative for all future-oriented artists / labels!
