About Majestic Percussion:
Majestic Percussion traces its beginnings to 1921 with the founding of the Van der Glas company in The Netherlands. The Majestic brand became known for producing high-quality drum sets in the 1960’s, and was gradually expanded to offer a full range of concert percussion instruments that it is known for throughout the world today. Majestic has become the preferred brand of many discriminating percussion performers and educators who know they can rely on carefully constructed instruments born from both traditional percussion heritage and a culture of innovation.
