ProMark celebrate 25 Years of cooperation. Also see the SP-Gear session of this website.

ProMark website says"". 2005 is a milestone for Simon Phillips and Pro-Mark. It was early in 1980 that company founder Herb Brochstein responded to an inquiry from a then virtually unknown young drummer who was making lots of "noise" in Europe. Since then, Simon Phillips has become an internationally known and respected writer, producer, AND drummer. Currently touring the far east in clinic, Simon has played with a virtual "who's who" in the music business. Artists like Mick Jagger, The Who, Jeff Beck, Jack Bruce, Peter Gabriel, Joe Satriani, Tears for Fears, Judas Priest, Roxy Music, Michael Schenker, Nik Kershaw, Phd., Al DiMeola, 801, Pete Townshend, Russ Ballard, Robert Palmer, Stanley Clarke, The Pretenders, Jon Anderson, Whitesnake and Dave Gilmour to name just a few! And, the one thing that has remained constant? His American hickory 707 Simon Phillips Autograph Series model drumstick. To commemorate this anniversary, the Simon Phillips model now carries a special 25th anniversary imprint. Congratulations, Simon. Here's to many more years together!! "
