Vater is excited to welcome world-class musician Taku Hirano to the Vater Family of Artists. Taku is currently on tour playing percussion on Fleetwood Mac’s world tour. Vater will be releasing Taku Hirano’s unique signature multi-purpose stick design, “Katana”, at NAMM 2019.
“I’m so excited to now be a part of Vater’s family of artists. I have always admired the reputation that Vater has built on its consistency, dependability and attention to detail. It’s a great honour to be working with them on the development of my signature sticks.” – Taku Hirano
“I am extremely honoured to welcome Taku Hirano into the Vater Family. Ironically, his initial connection to Vater goes back to his teens when he was buying the Vater made Jack’s Drum Shop sticks while he was a student at Berklee College of Music. We are thrilled that Taku has chosen Vater as his new home and all of us at Vater are looking forward to a very positive and productive future working together, starting with the release of his “Katana” stick design at NAMM 2019!” – Chad Brandolini – Vater Director of Artist Relations
