Beyond the manufacture of mallets, we want to share, exchange and make known the world of percussion. We regularly offer concerts or educational events with artists. This involvement in the democratization of percussion is not only proposing exchanges with percussionists, teachers or students, but also with the general public. The International Percussions Meetings are born of this will.
