THE FUTURE IS NOW!
Over the last three years we've been busy fulfilling our
commitment to turn the marching percussion world on its ear, drum
line, by drum line. Word has spread… from high school programs to
some of the most prestigious bands in the country, like "The Crew"
at the University of Pittsburgh,The U.S. Air Force Academy Drum and
Bugle Corps., The University of Hawaii, The Spirit of Houston
Cougar band at the University of Houston and The Blinn College
Buccenners. With so many common-sense solutions to age-old
equipment problems, the drummers at Tama can't wait to show you
what the drums of tomorrow look like.

With all the challenges of running a business-pressures,
deadlines, and striving to do better today than what you did
yesterday, it's possible to forget, from time to time, why we do
what we do. This video of the Maui High School Marching band
members discovering their new shipment of Tama Marching drums
renews and re-ignites our passion for building great musical
instruments every time we see it!
How Perfection, Percussion and The Finest Marching Brass In The
USA Became TAMA BY KANSTUL
"We worked with numerous band directors during the development
of our marching percussion line," says 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."
Homestead High School Joins The Tama Family
The Homestead High School marching percussion program has
exploded over the last decade, with close to 50 students
participating in fall and/or winter seasons. The marching drumline
is the 2010 WBA 5A champion and 2012 runner-up. In 2013 the indoor
marching percussion ensemble made its debut performance at the WGI
World Championships in Dayton Ohio, and achieved finalist status in
the Scholastic World division.
TAMA At WGI 2013
Tama Marching Drums would like to congratulate and thank all of
the percussion ensembles at WGI this year. It was a fantastic show
for the audience put on by the competing drum lines. Tama was
represented in Scholastic "A", Scholastic Open, Independent Open,
and Scholastic World categories. Special congratulations goes to
Orange County Independent Percussion receiving a silver medal in
the Independent Open Competition and to Ayala High School receiving
a silver medal in the Scholastic World Competition. Best wishes to
all from Tama for the rest of 2013.

Tama Welcomes The Saints Brigade
The first community-based drum and bugle corps to adopt Tama
Marching Percussion as their drums of choice! The Saints Brigade
Drum and Bugle Corps call the Carver Center in Port Chester, New
York their home base. Their story is remarkable in many ways:
Though the organization is not yet two years old, they have already
managed to capture the 2012 DCA I&E championship in the
percussion battery category. Equally remarkable is the community
aspect of the Saints Brigade. Its diverse membership, mostly young
men and women in their teens and twenties pay no member dues or
fees, and receive scholarships for each year they participate.
