Drum Corps Europe is pleased to welcome D’Addario Europe as a new sponsor.
D’Addario Europe is known for their brands Evans and Promark.
Chick Evans invented the synthetic (or plastic, or polyester) drumhead in 1956. He was the first person to use polyester film to form a drumhead, succeeding in creating a weatherproof head, and ultimately changing the drum world forever.
The Promark company was founded in 1957 by Herb Brochstein, a professional drummer and drum shop owner. Promark has been the sticks of choice by such renowned artists as Neil Peart, the late Elvin Jones, Ringo Starr, Phil Collins, Mike Portnoy, 19-time DCI champion Concord Blue Devils, and many, many more.
DCE is looking forward to build a strong relationship with D’ Addario.
