Danmar Percussion Products was founded by Frank DeVito in 1970. After years of playing behind some of the biggest names in the music industry — including Frank Sinatra, Elvis, The Beach Boys, Sonny & Cher, The Monkees, Herb Alpert, The Benny Goodman Orchestra — and as a recording artist with Baja Marimba Band, DeVito found that many of the commercially manufactured drum parts just didn’t cut it. That’s why he began to develop his own and formed Danmar to make them available to drummers everywhere.
For more than 25 years, Big Bang Distribution has fostered a robust working relationship with Frank DeVito and Danmar Percussion as its primary distributor. According to the Big Bang team, taking over the production of Danmar feels like a natural progression of events.
Danmar dealers and fans will be seeing new designs, new packaging and a steady flow of more new products coming out of the new home of Danmar Percussion in the coming weeks and months, but can also rest assured that all of the original Danmar Percussion products they have relied on will be around for many years to come.
