Attack Drumheads is now under new ownership, led by industry veterans Jim Bickley, former vice president of Universal Percussion; Robbie McFarland, general manager of Hubbard Music retail stores; and Mark Tirabassi, president of Mavi Inc., who launched a new wholesale company, Cardinal Percussion. In addition to relaunching, rebranding and retooling Attack Drumheads, Cardinal Percussion will wholesale and distribute many of the drumming industry’s most popular brands of accessories.
Cardinal Percussion, headquartered in Youngstown, Ohio, features a complete line of Cardinal Percussion-branded small goods.
“Between us, Robbie, Mark and I are fortunate to have made many friends in this industry over the years,” said Bickley. “We look forward to renewing those relationships and providing our dealers and their customers excellent, high-value products and an unparalleled level of service.”
Added drummer Eric Singer of KISS: “Attack Drumheads have been an integral part of my sound for over 20 years. After speaking with Mark [Tirabassi] about the new product designs, concepts and direction of the brand, I can safely say the future of this drumhead brand is on the Attack!”
