"I think I fell into Tama really without thinking about it much in about 1980 when my drum-tech Graham Davies produced some gear at the beginning of the K.C. rehearsals for Discipline. The catalogue was full of unlikely things - boobams (octobans) , Gong toms, brass snare drums, the new boom cymbal stands - all great stuff for King Crimson. Tama has been really great to me, and I've probably helped to sell a reasonable amount of gear for them. They make great drums, but they also are able to produce a kit to my spec in most cities round the world, saving a bundle on shipping costs. As a company they produce consistently high standard products, are loyal to their artists and pick up the phone quickly. What more could you want? People are always asking me what I think about XYZ drums. The answer is always - 'nothing'. The only downside to endorsing a specific manufacturer is that I don't know anything about other manufacturers' drums because I never play them." - Bill Brufordmore
