Taye Drums has scooped up two veteran drum industry heavyweights who are sure to shake things up for the innovative brand. With 20 years of experience under his belt working for such leading power brokers as Pearl, Ludwig, and Mapex, Jim Phiffer has been appointed as the head of sales and marketing and will be based out of a newly established company facility headquartered in Middle Tennessee. To sweeten the pot, Taye hired Todd Trent as assistant sales and marketing manager/artist relations. Trent also brings a wealth of experience to the table, having worked as artist relations manager at Ludwig for 25 years while running his Southern Californian retail music store Ontario Music. Congratulations to all!
