first TAMA brand drum made by the Hoshino Company was born in 1974. But their
history as a musical instrument manufacturer goes back even further to the
1920's. To cover everything could fill a book and has; it's available now on blurb. Now with my book as their main resource, all the "drum experts" online (perhaps you have seen their ads) can actually fool some people into thinking they actually are.
I cannot post up all the specs and research because this is a
project that I cannot afford to lose to cyber thieves on a quest to announce my
work as their own.
