Precision Drum Company Founder Passes Away

Founder of Precision Drum Company, George Arthur Folchi, passed away this week at the age of 85.

Folchi started his custom drum and repair business in 1961 to provide recovery wrap for drums to mail order customers. He eventually expanded the business, even building a custom six-foot drum for the Blue Man Group, and taught others how to build drums, fueling the custom drum market in and around New York.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Gertrude Folchi, his children George, Ken, Gary, Andrea and six grandchildren.
