PROMARK

The ProMark company was founded in 1957 by Herb Brochstein, a professional drummer and drum shop owner. ProMark has always been a family business and so continues with the 2011 purchase by D’Addario & Company from Herb’s son Maury. The offices and factory remain in Houston, Texas; manufacturing hickory, maple and Japanese Shira Kashi™ Oak (ProMark was the first American drumstick company to successfully market sustainable Japanese Oak) drumsticks in its modern 90,000 square foot facility. ProMark uses only un-endangered wood in the manufacturing of its sticks and mallets. The harvesting of our hardwoods is carefully controlled, with replenishment of the forest as one of our top concerns.  Prior to becoming drumsticks, the wood goes through a multitude of selection and pre-finishing processes at our own mill in the mid-south, followed by rigorous inspections throughout the manufacturing process. The Houston manufacturing team works with the state-of-the-art machinery to produce the drumsticks, keyboard and timpani mallets that are designed tested and used by top performers, educators, students and enthusiasts throughout the world. ProMark has been the sticks of choice by such renowned artists as Neil Peart, the late Elvin Jones, Ringo Starr, Phil Collins, Mike Portnoy, Dave Lombardo, Jason Bonham, Benny Greb, Simon Philips, Ray Luzier, Joey Jordison, 9-time DCI champion Concord Blue Devils, and many, many...

Hughes & Kettner

Posted by on 21:02 in Blog | 0 comments

HISTORY TECHNOLOGY OF TONE … is what we’ve been about from day one. And since that day, we’ve been living up to our performance promise of making great tone accessible to discerning players. Designed with sophisticated simplicity in mind, our tone-sculpting tools are conduits for inspiration. Plug in, put on unforgettable performances, and relish those magic moments in a guitarist’s life. But great tone is not alchemy or weird science. It’s a capability built on passion and know-how. Even after all the years marked by so many milestone achievements, that passion burns as brightly as ever. ABOUT HUGHES & KETTNER SMART AND FROM THE HEART! Over the course of the past thirty years, the name Hughes & Kettner has become synonymous worldwide with guitar amps of the highest quality. Engineered in Germany, these amps are the product of a lifelong passion and pursuit of a vision – to make great tone accessible for the discerning player. OUR STORY Company founders (and brothers) Hans and Lothar Stamer began producing their own guitar amps in 1985. While the production space may have been small, their aspirations were not. Soon, the reputation of their products for craftsmanship and performance spread, prompting them to expand operations time and time again. MR. HUGHES & HERR KETTNER When Mr. Hughes, the synonym for the discerning guitar player, and Herr Kettner, the ahead-thinking German engineer, first met, Mr. Hughes was on a tone quest, looking to enrich players’ sonic palette with more soulful means of expression. A glockenspiel’s chime, the snap and snarl of a junkyard dog, the seductive wail of Siren’s song, the thunderous rush of a passing freight train, the howling of a keening jackal, the malevolent grind of a chainsaw biting into metal – could an amp really be made to do all this? Engineering whiz Herr Kettner had his eyes on a very different prize. Envisaging a compact amp that would deliver fully-formed sounds including effects at the touch of a button, he sought to do what has never been done before. And he wasn’t averse to doing better what has already been done. So began an impassioned collaboration that continues to this day. OUR PHILOSOPHY – TECHNOLOGY OF TONE From the very start, our focus has been the needs of our users, who challenged us not to be satisfied with standard solutions. Our mission is to deliver the entire package—high-quality tone and hassle-free setup, all tailored not just to satisfy but to exceed the demands of the modern guitar player. Technology of Tone is what we’ve been about from day one. And since that day, we’ve been living up to our performance promise of making great tone accessible to discerning players. Designed with sophisticated simplicity in mind, our tone-sculpting tools are conduits for inspiration. Plug in, put on unforgettable performances, and relish those magic moments in a guitarist’s life. But great tone is not alchemy or weird science. It’s a capability built on passion and know-how. Even after all the years marked by so many milestone achievements, that passion burns as brightly as ever. SMART AND FROM THE HEART! We live in a world of sensory perception—touch, taste, sight, and especially great tone! Hearing is like no other sense. Auditory perceptions are interpreted as information, but they also have a direct...

Simon Phillips

Posted by on 22:30 in Blog | 0 comments

Simon Phillips speelde, sprak en overwon Twee uitverkochte clinics om nog lang over te praten Een clinic van Simon Phillips is altijd een belevenis. En met de jaren lijkt hij alleen maar makkelijker te zijn geworden – meer op zijn gemak, minder ‘n pietje precies, gewoon lekker spelen. Natuurlijk helpt de eindeloze ervaring met het sound maken, en als de samenwerking met de zaalmixer en de organisatie dan ook nog lekker loopt is Phillips blij, en iedereen met hem. Hij speelde een selectie van de nieuwe Protocol-opnames (die verschijnen komend najaar), soleerde en nam de tijd om vragen te beantwoorden. Met humor, en relativering, en spelvoorbeelden, en veel anekdotes. Daarna speelde hij weer, liet zijn opwarmroutine op alleen snaredrum zien (oef…), praatte nog wat en sloot met een spetterend stuk muziek af, waarbij hij zijn eigen woorden (‘Ik doe het tegenwoordig rustiger aan, ik laat de drums meer spreken en speel niet meer zo hard’) eventjes teniet deed. Han Nijenhuis deed voorafgaand aan de clinic een interview met Phillips voor Slagwerkkrant. Het was alweer acht jaar geleden dat we hem écht één op één spraken. Nijenhuis over het interview: ‘Stel drie vragen en je kan het hele blad volschrijven, zo’n gesprek was het. Onderhoudend, boeiend, grappig en ondertussen strooiend met de ene grote naam na de andere, zonder ook maar een moment patserig te worden. Zo ging het ook tijdens de clinic, waarin hij uiteraard veel speelde, maar ook alle tijd nam om vragen te beantwoorden. Serieuze uitleg over z’n drumkit en technieken wisselende hij af met mooie en soms hilarische anekdotes. Twee en een half uur aan een stuk. De tijd vloog om.’...

Ibanez

Posted by on 11:37 in Blog | 0 comments

A Short History Of A Company With A Long History If you wanted a total history of Ibanez you´d have go back to 1908 when a company named Hoshino began as a sheet music store and later music products distributor in Nagoya Japan. If you wanted a little less completeness than that you´d go back about forty-five when Hoshino began distributing a Spanish guitar named Ibanez. Or perhaps you´d simply go to the Mid 60´s when Hoshino, who by that time had purchased the rights to the Ibanez name, began shipping incredibly funky looking guitars to the United States, many of which were actually sold in department stores. But for most of us, Ibanez pretty much begins almost 30 years ago, when Hoshino opened an office near Philadelphia, PA for more efficiently distributing Ibanez guitars to the United States. Most of those guitars were Ibanez´ famous high quality (but very inexpensive) copies of just about everything–you name it, we probably made a version of it. At that time many American instruments were going through an unfortunate period of increasing prices with decreasing quality, and these copies hit a ready market. But the people with Ibanez weren´t content with just copying and Ibanez began making their own designs: the solid body Artists (played by Bob Weir of the Dead) the Iceman (first made famous by Paul Stanley of KISS and the George Benson guitars, the first jazz boxes designed for higher volume stage playing. Many of these “first” Ibanez guitars continue to increase in value and a good number are now highly prized collector´s items. By 1976, the Ibanez copy era officially came to an end when one of the major American guitar manufacturers–no longer amused by the copiers–successfully sued the highest profile copier, Ibanez. But by that time it didn´t matter–Ibanez had already left the copies behind and was fast becoming an innovative guitar company in its own right. By the mid-80´s with the interest in instrumental rock guitar on the rise, Ibanez collaborated with players such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Paul Gilbert and brought out the JEM, JS, RG and S models. Today, present day versions such as these models still considered the standard in hard rock and instrumental rock guitars. As well known for its jazz guitars as it is for rock, Ibanez has an impressive line of jazz boxes including the aforementioned George Benson models, two Pat Metheny models, and most recently, the new John Scofield signature semi-acoustic. One final note…Ibanez is also one of the top selling bass companies in the world (in many places the top selling bass). Ibanez first drew attention in the 70´s and 80´s with its neck-thru Musician basses with active electronics. Today, Ibanez offers the huge number of 4, 5, and 6 basses in the Soundgear as well as the basses of the future, the luthite-bodied Ergodynes. Please follow this LINK for more Ibanez...
