Dream Cymbals and Gongs has appointed KMC Music to serve as its exclusive U.S. distribution partner. According to KMC Music Vice President of Merchandising Roger Hart, the appointment includes full responsibility for managing all of Dream’s United States dealer sales, inventory and receivables.
“Dream is one of the hottest and most innovative brands in the retail music industry today and this new distribution agreement frees this dynamic and fast-growing company to focus on what it does best — innovative product design and development, manufacturing and marketing,” Hart said. “KMC Music will function as Dream’s complete sales and administrative resource and we’re really looking forward to maximizing market growth and servicing their dealers. We’re poised to do remarkable things together.”
Formed in 2005 from a partnership between passionate Canadian instrument designers and generations of Chinese gong smiths, Dream Cymbals and Gongs are all made exclusively in a family-owned gong factory in the famed Wuhan region of China — a region that can trace its gong making roots back several thousand years.
“Dream cymbals and gongs are the blank canvas musicians create art with,” said Dream Cymbals and Gongs President Andy Morris. “Our goal is to create perfect conditions for musicians to find their authentic voice, in an affordable and sustainable way. Our new distribution agreement with KMC Music is going to help many more musicians to do just that. KMC Music shares our values and understands our commitment to exceed the highest expectations of our dealers and loyal customers. KMC Music has the broad reach, market depth and back-end resources that can help to drive sales while we continue to innovate new products and build our growing worldwide family of artists, dealers and musicians.”
KMC Music will be ready to receive and ship orders on June 15.
