About Humes and Berg:

Founded in 1935 by the great Willie Berg, he was a struggling musician working in Chicago that would go to all the clubs in the area and sell the band members valve oil, reeds, cymbals, and many other supplies out of a bag he carried with him. His customers included great names like Duke Ellington, Harry James, Count Basie, Woody Herman, The Dorsey Brothers and the legendary Glen Miller who encouraged Willie to make mutes for brass instruments so that he could blend the brass section. In 1948, the factory was moved to its present location in East Chicago, Indiana. It is still located here today, although additional acreage was purchased over the years to make it the sprawling campus it has become. Humes and Berg products are supported by our network of over 3,000 Dealers in the USA and are distributed in nearly 50 countries worldwide. The goal is to supply you with quality products for your perfect performance, designed with durability and innovation and always at a fair price. Their entire staff is dedicated to their customers’ complete satisfaction at all times.

About DrumTacs:

A product of StudioLabs, Drumtacs are releasable, reusable, super tacky sound control pads. Used as directed, they will not flap, buzz, fly off or harm any percussive surface including: bottom heads, vertical heads, underneath cymbals, inside bells and blocks … even under heavy pounding and in extreme temperatures. Drumtacs are selective and remove high frequency overtones and create a deeper focused sound that can improve response and increase attack.
