Now, with Tycoon Percussion’s presence growing significantly in the U.S. year after year, the pace of progress has only accelerated. "I had a very clear purpose in establishing my own operation in the United States," he states, "to propel the company to becoming the next elite hand percussion brand - and I believe we are well on our way to achieving that goal."

Tycoon Percussion’s commitment is to combine sound authenticity with innovative designs in all of our products. Our vision is to inspire percussionists everywhere towards greater creativity and to play with excitement each time they pick up their instruments.
