Universal Percussion Awarded
By Vic Firth

Evidently, hickory flew out of Universal Percussion’s shipping dock throughout 2009, because Vic Firth, Inc. has named the Midwestern percussion distributor its North American Distributor Of The Year for 2009. Firth presented Universal with a plaque and personal letter from company chairman Vic Firth and sales and marketing director Mark Dyke. After receiving this prestigious distinction, the entire company put on matching t-shirts lined up for a photo. Boy, they sure know how to party at Universal, don’t they?
