Innovative Percussion Celebrates 25 Years

2018 marks Innovative Percussion's 25th anniversary. The company has celebrated the occasion with the announcement of an expanded facility and production process.

By adding an additional 5,000 square feet, the Nashville-based drumstick and mallet company created additional space for current production, warehousing and shipping facilities, while accommodating a state-of-the-art in house drumstick turning operation that was carefully designed and developed over a several year period.

The computerized wood turning lathes are able to simultaneously cut and sand the drumsticks, while the addition of other proprietary manufacturing equipment allow for a much more efficient process. This added production capability highly compliments the computerized weight and pitch sorting technology that Innovative Percussion has used since 2013, which has the tightest pairing tolerances within the industry, according to company officials.

The expansion allows Innovative Percussion to have all drumstick and mallet manufacturing under one roof, giving the company much greater quality control, in turn producing an even better product for all of its customers.
