not only do we manufacture cymbals, we are also a distributor for various other companies in the musicindustry. for example - we distribute tama drums, promark sticks, evans heads, prs guitars, mesa boogie amps, and other brands. in 2007, the construction of our new logistic center has begun and was finished end of last year. yesterday we celebrated the official opening of the new logistic center. it's been a lovely day with lots of friends, great weather, a great band (liquid blue), food and drinks. it's the most modern logistic center in the entire music business and needless to say, we are all very proud of it. a picture says more than 1000 words - so check'em all out.

yesterday would have been the perfect day if our national soccer team had won the euro-final against spain. unfortunately, we lost 0:1. congrats to spain. you guys deserve it, cause your team has been the best in the whole competition. but hey, being #2 team in europe is not bad at all :-)
