Tandem Drums Partners with Westside as U.K. Distributor
Tandem Drums has announced Westside Distribution is its exclusive distributor for the U.K. market. This partnership will enable Tandem Drums to extend its current product line to artists in the U.K., while paving the way for future product offerings in that market.
Tandem Drums said in a statement it selected Westside based on its executive team’s experience with the drum market and their passion for design, quality and innovation.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Westside for almost a decade while at Mono, and we’re extremely pleased to have the opportunity to build another world-class brand together,” said Daniel Kushner, Tandem Drums founder. “They understand us and what we’re about.”
“The second we saw Drops, we realized that partnering with Tandem Drums on its release was a foregone conclusion,” said Andy Haldane, head of marketing for Westside Distribution. “It’s clear that with the initial interest Drops has garnered that they will create a major buzz in the U.K. market, which is why we’re thrilled to be rolling them out.”
Tandem Drums launched in 2023 following a successful crowdfunding campaign for its first product line, Drops. Drops are a collection of drum effects designed by the creator of Mono, the acclaimed luggage and accessory brand. Frustrated by “those disgusting gels we all use,” industrial designer and drummer Daniel Kushner designed Drops to enhance drum tone without the use of gels or adhesives.
