Tama Teams With Kanstul
Tama Marching Percussion recently expanded its offerings to include a new line of marching brass horns built by Kanstul Musical Instruments.
"We worked with numerous band directors during the development of our marching percussion line," said Tama USA Product Manager Charlie Hayashi. "They were the ones who first suggested that a partnership with a quality brass manufacturer would be helpful, in terms of the school bid process. We kept that in mind as the next step after launching."
The link to Kanstul was drum master Tom Float, who in collaboration with Tama leader Ken Hoshino, developed Tama Marching Percussion’s drum products. Knowing both Kanstul and Hoshino, Float saw the strong potential in an introduction, based on their similarities.
"Our commitment to combining groundbreaking hardware with great sounding drums has made the marching percussion industry sit up and take notice," Hayashi said. "Our partnership with Kanstul will make our collective products an easy choice for band directors."
