FMM deal with Premier to last for three years
2006 World Pipe Band Champions Field Marshal Montgomery of Belfast have revealed that its deal with Premier Percussion announced in early February will last at least three years. The endorsement contract started officially in January 2007.
The band debuted its new drums in a concert with ScottishPower at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on January 27. The band is playing HTS700 snares and Hosbilt tenor and bass drums.
In a statement to pipes|drums, a spokesperson for Field Marshal Montgomery said, “Premier’s commitment to a long term partnership with Field Marshal is a mark of its intent to continue to invest within the pipe band community, and in the future of piping and drumming worldwide.”
“Personally, I am looking forward to yet another demanding year of competition and concert performance,” Field Marshal Leading-Drummer Keith Orr said. “Everyone in the drum corps is excited with the new instruments, and we are highly motivated by the challenge from all the other great RSPBA Grade 1 drum corps.”
The band had used drums from Pearl since 2002.
