DW DRUMS, The Drummer’s Choice® is more than a slogan, it’s a fact. After more than thirty years of innovation and tireless dedication to improving the way drum products are made, DW drums, pedals and hardware are the standard by which all others are measured. To get here, it takes more than a working knowledge of the instrument or a few good ideas; it takes a true passion for designing and manufacturing the very best.

SABIAN Cymbals was founded in late 1981, when one of the world’s great names in cymbal making, Bob ‘Sabian’ decided drummers deserve better cymbals. Not happy with the quality, sound and relevance of cymbals made at that time, he launched SABIAN. Located in the small eastern Canadian village of Meductic, New Brunswick, SABIAN – most notably The Vault, where cymbals are designed – has since become the global center for cymbal and sound innovation. Our ongoing program of discovery and design means today’s drummers and percussionist have a larger-than-ever selection of interesting and innovative cymbals to choose from, with models ranging from vintage to modern, from highly personalized to whatever you need.
MAKING THE PERFECT PAIR™
For over 40 years, Vic Firth the musician has made it his priority in design and manufacturing to elevate and then continue to improve the status quo for drummers’ tools. Throughout the years as he has raised the bar, other brands have improved as well — giving the drummer many options from which to choose, but also creating confusion with so many claims and opposing opinions on how to manufacture the best drumstick.

Humes and Berg has been a source of inspiration for me since 1995. Michael Berg and his staff have been exceptional in fulfilling my needs for cases, bags and accessories.

Gruv Gear started as a passion project to fill much needed gaps in the music gear market. With nearly 20 years experience as a bass player/musician, and over 12 years in product management and design, founder Jay Baldemor found himself searching for specific solutions to make his gigging life easier, but discovered that they either did not exist, or players quietly settled for poorly designed products over the last decade or so. After a pilot launch in 2007 with the Original V-Cart™, Jay and his team of industrial designers and engineers soon confirmed a greater need, and immediately began the redesign of the next-generation V-Cart Solo™ based on feedback from endorsers and users. The rest, as they say, is history.
