The principle of our family business is to continually create
new sounds with cymbals, sounds, gongs, and bronze percussion
instruments according to the creative needs of drummers and
percussionists. the foundation of this search for musical
sound is the successful combination of the musician's creative
imagination and the inventive spirit of the musical instrument
maker. The spark that continually invigorates this search
is music itself, in all its beauty, complexity, and seemingly
never-ending capacity for new ways of expression. The relationship
between us as sound makers, and drummers and percussionists
as musicians, is the very intimate manifestation of this deep
principle. This is our true purpose.
