We had so much fun at TMEA 2013 we were sorry to see it end. Our new booth location worked out well, as we met even more new directors, educators and young musicians. Since space commitments are reserved far in advance of the show, the introduction of our new brass line, Tama by Kanstul, made for a tight floor plan. Everybody made it work. The word about the drums has spread quite a bit, so there was a steady flow of both the curious and the converted. Add the surprise of new horns to that traffic and you could say that by the time we got home we were pretty talked out!

Two Legendary Drumlines Turn To Tama!

Tama Marching Percussion is honored to have become the drum-of-choice for two legendary marching bands. On the left coast, the UCLA Bruins drumline will soon be sporting Tama drums. Known by many for their nationally televised Rose Bowl appearances throughout the years, "The Solid Gold Sound" also boasts a musical reputation that surpasses genre, having appeared live and in the studio with dozens of major-name rock and pop artists.

Back east, more exciting news for Tama: an order from The United States Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps "The Navy's Oldest and Finest," has been providing music for the Brigade of Midshipmen and surrounding community since 1852. Located at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, the band is comprised of 68 professional, Navy musicians, who have studied at some of the best music schools and conservatories in the country, and who have extensive résumés in performance and teaching.
