Majestic Percussion is a part of KHS America Music Group putting it in the same family as popular brands like Jupiter, Azumi, XO, and Mapex. Majestic produces orchestra and marching percussion instruments ranging from concert drums to vibraphones to marimbas.
Willem Klazes van der Glas founded Majestic Percussion in 1921. He was greatly inspired by the German timpani makers and these instruments and their makers influenced his own relationship with percussion. They have remained a family company and every step of production - from development to manufacture - is closely overlooked. Their xylophones, timpani, and drums are admired throughout the world because of the company's commitment to classic designs, innovative technology, and top quality materials.
A wide assortment of concert and marching percussion is available from The Woodwind and Brasswind including the MPO2AH Symphonic Series Timpani Set. This timpani features precision hammered copper bowls atop a cast aluminum frame. Highly mobile, this timpani features a third wheel below the pedal. Another quality item is the Majestic Prophonic Concert Snare Drum. This drum pronounces dark tones and allows for the snares to be engaged or disengaged by a master switch. Select a walnut, maple, or aluminum shell to achieve your desired sound.
The company is exceptionally proud of their xylophones including their 3.5-Octave Synthetic Xylophone which produces a bright, melodic sound. Its lightweight frame allows this instrument to be highly portable. Finally, the Majestic Quantum Field Chimes are a remarkable addition to any marching band. These chimes ring out to the crowd and are supported by a frame which rolls smoothly along the field.
