Adding to its already extensive offering of premium percussion brands, KMC, the industry-leading value added distributor of MI, Pro Audio, and Band & Orchestra products, today announced that it has been appointed to serve as the exclusive United States distributor of Natal Drums & Percussion, according to KMC Music Vice President of Merchandising Roger Hart.
“Natal is renowned for their stunning range of drums, snare drums and hardware, and we are honored to be able to represent the line to our network of 6,500 resellers,” said Hart. “We are fully stocked and ready to ship. The addition of Natal to our portfolio effectively reinforces and strengthens KMC’s position as the one-stop source for everything having to do with percussion.”
In 1965, Natal was started by one drummer, Alan Sharp, who was seeking to find the right gear for him to play. Unsatisfied with what was available, he literally built it himself and created a company in the process. Today Natal is known for tailoring their drum kits’ sound and attack through the use of choice tone woods. Whether a player desires the pure projection of Maple, the dark voice of Walnut, or the resonant attack of Birch, Natal makes a drum where all artists can find their sound. Natal also carries Pro Series and Standard series hardware, as well as a full line of Metal Meta snare drums. Additionally, they offer a full selection of tone-colors where one can paint their own masterpiece. From Led Zeppelin to Bastille, Natal has become the player's choice.
“We are confident that KMC will help us to effectively reach a broader and deeper audience of MI retailers with their expansive reseller network,” said Jon Ellery, Managing Director of Natal. “We are excited to be able to provide more drummers across the country with the very best drum kits and hardware available, and to help more artists discover their own unique sound through this new partnership.”
KMC’s growing percussion portfolio also includes Rhythm Tech, Remo, Vic Firth, Vater, Gibraltar, LP, Paiste, Toca, and Innovative Percussion among others.
