Default Vic Firth on CBS Sunday morning

CBS ran a bit about Vic Firth. Showed the factory, the Appalachian hickory from Tennessee, the drying kilns, lathes, and computer matching machine. He also makes the best-selling Chef Mario Batali orange-colored pepper mill.

The factory turns out tens of thousands of pairs every day.

Here is the part I didn't know. I'd have assumed this of Pro-mark.

Vic Firth has 62% of the drum stick market.

Vic Firth has retired from the Boston Symphony Orchestra after 50 years and is 77.
