Carol passed away? Damn, wasn't she pretty much running the place? And, I love the 5BX nylon, which is like no other model that can be found, so I'd hate to lose those. I'll check the site to see what I can get.Last time I spoke with anyone at the office it was probably early Spring when I got my last order of sticks. There wasn't any indication that things were going down behind the scenes. I do know that it's a family run business and Joe's wife passed away over the summer. That probably derailed things a bit for a while. Everyone in that office, even the non-family employees are all close.
They have scaled back on distribution to stores the last couple years, as they own their own distribution company, Direct Music Supply. A stated before they also sell direct now. I think that would be the best way to go if you're looking for product.
And their Social Media is still active. They don't post on IG much, but they do post to their story almost every day.
And their FB's most recent activity was just a few weeks ago in early December. So I wouldn't count them as down and out at all.
I'm sure we would have heard if they announced anything big, but are they at NAMM at all? I've been looking around, but haven't seen anything.Maybe they're preparing to make a splash at NAMM in a couple of weeks.
